In an interview to Standard Dominic Thiem spoke about the Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic dominance. The Austrian player said: "The change of generation is half completed, you can already see it in the Masters 1000s where things got balanced.
The only thing we need to do is to win Grand Slams. They are only won by the three. I think seeing a new Grand Slam winner is difficult." Asked what surprises him the most about the three, Thiem replied: "Each one for their qualities.
They have a lot of experience and they are amazing athletes." Does he see himself playing until 38 years of age like Roger Federer is doing? "I do not think so " What would he pick between winning a Grand Slam or becoming the world number one? "Definitely Grand Slams.
It can be my only logical goal." Should he reduce his tournaments schedule after dealing with health issues this year? "I am very happy and pleased with my body. Kitzbuhel meant a lot to me. I was at a full power and pressure.
Then I got ill." He is always travelling around the world. Does he struggle enjoying triumphes? "Yes. I wanted to have a party in Kitzbuhel but I was too tired. It's a bit sad. The Tour goes so quickly. But I can spend time with my family or friends.
And I also get along well with my team. Also with my coach Nicolas Massu who is able to analyze my matches and opponents very well."
