Kristina Mladenovic is attending every match of her new boyfriend Dominic Thiem this week at the ATP Finals in London. Sat next to the Austrian player's mother, the French is supporting Dominic Thiem, who will try to qualify for semifinals on Friday when he faces David Goffin.
It was Thiem himself, in an interview to Die Presse, to confirm love story: 'I won't say anything about it but it's obvious we are in a relationship.' They have been together since the summer. Also Thiem's coach Gunter Bresnik commented about it: 'It didn't change anything for Dominic in terms of work ethic.
This relationship is an advantage because Kristina accepts and understands things like a tennis professional.' Thiem also analyzed the three setter match won against Pablo Carreno Busta: 'It was always tough open matches against him, same like today.
I'm mostly pleased with my game or partly pleased with my game. At the end I'm of course happy that I won it.' On Friday he faces David Goffin, and the winner will reach semifinals. 'First of all, I'm very happy and pleased that I get the chance to play for the semifinals on Friday.
Not much calculating. The winner go through. We had some big, important matches in the past. Also in the deep rounds of slams. This one's going to be another one. We know each other very well. He played a very good match here, one very bad match.
I don't know what to expect. I'm hoping that it's going to be a tough match, and I'm trying everything to go through to the semis. He's taking the balls very early. He's giving me not much time. Especially on this little bit faster surface, it's tough for me.
Yeah, so I try to be the first to hurt him and not the other way around.' ALSO READ: Sock and the fire alarm at 4:00 AM: 'I saw Nadal, Thiem outside the hotel'
