Dominic Thiem is playing the Erste Bank Open in Vienna for the tenth time. The 26-year-old was asked about his best memories from Kurier. Thiem said: "Of course the match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in 2013. Now I hope to take a revenge.
Tsonga has been one of the best players over the last decade, one of the big superstars. In the last two years he had injuries, but now he came back. I will try to be in a good shape on Tuesday." On the documentary in his honor, Thiem added: "It's nice for people to see what happens behind the scenes, what happens outside.
There are many special moments." On him drinking a champagne bottle after triumphing in Indian Wells, Thiem said: "That's very rare, I take alcohol only in exceptional cases." On his eating regime, Thiem said: "I just want a healthy diet.
At home it works better because we use products from our ground. In tournaments it's tougher. But after my career, I will become vegetarian. I cannot avoid meat at the moment." On Greta Thunberg protecting the climate, Thiem added: "I think it's good since she speaks with politics men at only 16 years of age.
She moves a completely new public, in particular the students. Those matters are faced, after all, looking to the future of our planet." Thiem cares about the nature of the planet: "I try to help with donations for a better world. For WWF and 4oceans. I also try to use my popularity to convince people of how important those issues are."
