In an interview, Dominic Thiem spoke about the recent Wimbledon edition. The Australian player was asked to give a thought about the epic final between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer. "I have not watched the entire match, I saw the entire Federer-Nadal semifinal, I really enjoyed the match, but the final was unbelievably emotional.
The match did not deserve a loser", said Thiem. On his opening-round loss to Sam Querrey, the 26-year-old added: "Until the third set everything was okay, then I lost focus and the match ended. It was a really tough first round and if I went through that, I could have reached more rounds but I cannot do anything about it now", said Thiem, who would like to improve his backhand.
He is looking forward to competing in Hamburg and Kitzbuhel: "I feel really well, I think that some good performances will not influence my run in the US Open. But you never know what happens. Two years ago, a promising second part of the season switched into a bad one."
On the work he is doing with his fitness coach Douglas Cordero, Thiem added: "This year is the first one I have been working with Duglas, having fitness training sessions. I get a schedule every day from him. From Indian Wells, I played at a relatively high level, except for a couple of events."
On his off-season, Thiem concluded: "I am sure it will not happen in Tenerife. I may go to Miami or I may fly to Australia early with Dennis Novak and Sebastian Ofner because they will probably play the ATP Cup with me."
