Wolfgang Thiem reveals goals for 2020 season

Team Thiem has set some high goals for the next season. Dominic Thiem's father, Wolfgang, wants to see his son win a maiden Grand Slam title next year and also break into the top-3 for the first time. World No. 4 Thiem won his maiden Masters title this year after beating Roger Federer in the Indian Wells final.

The Austrian, who achieved a career-high ranking of No. 4 in the world in 2017, a bit surprisingly hasn't yet managed to make the top-3. "The goal for 2020 is clear -- to win a Grand Slam title and (to make) the top-3," Wolfgang Thiem told Heute.

Thiem's decision to add Nicolas Massu to his coaching staff in February turned out to be just what he needed. Since the Massu acquisition, Thiem's game has taken a step forward. The 26-year-old failed to lift his maiden Grand Slam title this past season but he will be one of the main contenders for the Major titles in 2020.

For the second year in a row, the Austrian made the final at the French Open but couldn't stun world No. 1 Rafael Nadal to lift his maiden Major glory. Thiem's best shot at winning a Grand Slam title will once again be the French Open.
