Austrian tennis star, Dominic Thiem, is well-known for his explosive gameplay and stunning groundstrokes. Thiem has proven himself to be a major force on clay in spite of his youth. It is said that the next-gen star is expected to dominate the French Open when Rafael Nadal retires.
Thiem dated former World No.10 Kristina Mladenovic for more than two years. However, the two broke up in November 2019.
The Austrian player has not won a Grand Slam title yet and the closest he has been was at the 2019 and 2018 Roland Garros, as well as at the Australian Open 2020. Both the times at Roland Garros, Thiem had finished as the runner-up to eventual champion, Rafael Nadal. At the Australian Open, he was defeated by Novak Djokovic after a nail-biting match. En route to the finals, he also defeated his arch-nemesis, Rafael Nadal. In 2019, he claimed his biggest victory at Indian Wells Masters, when 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.
Thiem also has 16 ATP titles to his credit, most on clay, but one on grass and five on hard courts.
Thiem rose to a career-high ranking of World No.3, surpassing Roger Federer in the first week of March 2020.
Thiem has an approximate net worth of $23 million.
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.
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. He is also engaged in the creation of a habitable ecosystem for marine life. He supports a non-profitable organization – ‘4ocean’ which is working towards the conservation of the oceans.
