Austrian tennis star, Dominic Thiem is well-known for his explosive gameplay and huge groundstrokes. Thiem has proven himself to be a major force on clay in spite of his youth. It is said that he is expected to dominate the French Open when Rafael Nadal retires eventually.
The Austrian player has not won a Grand Slam title yet and the closest he has been was at 2019 and 2018 French Open. Both the times, Thiem had finished as the runner-up to eventual champion, Rafael Nadal. In 2019, he claimed his biggest victory at Indian Wells Masters, where he defeated Roger Federer in the finals. He also reached the finals of the ATP World Tour Finals 2019, where he lost to Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Thiem has proven to the world that Rafael Nadal is not invincible on clay, having beaten him a few times. He is certainly showing signs of improvement on other surfaces too, but his clay-court skills are something to be desired. Dominic Thiem also finished as the runner-up at the 2020 Australian Open. Playing for maiden Grand Slam title, Thiem edged past the No.1 seed Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals but was defeated in a thrilling five-setter against Novak Djokovic in the finals.
Thiem also has 16 ATP titles to his credit, most on clay, but one on the grass and five on hard courts.
The 26-year-old has a few sponsors backing him, but he is young and will surely gain more as his career progresses. The few brands that sponsor him are Adidas, Babolat, Bank Austria, Kia, and Rolex.
In addition to that, his victories on the ATP tour have earned him almost $18,250,607 in terms of prize money.
Just like every other tennis player and sports personality, Thiem also does charity work. Along with the likes of Novak Djokovic, the Zverev brothers, Grigor Dimitrov, and others, Thiem contributed to La Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco. This foundation is dedicated to saving the environment and promoting sustainable development.
