In an interview, Dominic Thiem revealed that Kristina Mladenovic made a surprise visit to him in Austria last week. The Austrian player said: "I did not learn it until a few hours before. Kiki was in Wimbledon until the mixed doubles semifinals.
Then she went from London to Vienna instead of Paris. On Monday I had to go to Nurnberg for an event held by Adidas and she flew to Paris. Adidas now has a different line for me, Sascha Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas. Also, a couple of players will wear it."
On the TV documentary in honour of him where Mladenovic herself, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer among the others give an opinion about Thiem, he said: "It's a really interesting thing which makes me proud. I am really happy about it.
It lasts more than 90 minutes and you may show it on Dazn or Netflix or something like this." On why Mladenovic did not attend the premiere, Thiem concluded: "It would have been nice but she is already on her way to Florida.
She is training there because she starts the hard-court season in Washington." Through his official Instagram account, Grigor Dimitrov shared his sadness learning that the 64-year-old Peter McNamara has died on Sunday.
The Bulgarian player said: "Today is a sad day for me as I lost a former coach and mentor. Peter McNamara is someone that I will never forget. He played a big role in my development, not only on the court but also as a person.
I will always be grateful for our time together. My thoughts and prayers are with Peter's friends and family during this difficult time. Miss you coach."
