Dominic Thiem often brings his family with him in the tournaments. His mother Karin is a huge follower of her son and during the ATP Finals in London, the TV commentator Mark Petchey revealed Karin started getting tattoos after every tournament won by the world No.
4. This year Thiem conquered five titles including the most recent one in Vienna. Karin is yet to get a tattoo for it. "She started in Indian Wells and from then on she keeps doing one after every event won", said Wolfgang.
"But I will not make tattoos because I am scared!" Wolfgang also analyzed the ATP Finals championship clash loss to Stefanos Tsitsipas: "It was an unbelievably close first set where both players had chances to break, it was a high-level match and also afterward I talked to some officials and they told me it was one of the best championship clashes in the last years.
There was a too-long break between the first and second set and Dominic's momentum was broken, the match changed. He was lucky in Beijing and Vienna but not that lucky in this match. It was the last match of the season, it was a good season, the best ever in his career, finishing as a world No.
4, he can be more than happy and hopefully, he makes the next step which is to win Grand Slams and be the world No. 1. Now he has to disconnect from tennis for a few weeks and then start again. We did not talk too much. It's about small things, he made big progress this year, he is more mature, he mixes up the serve, he is more solid from the baseline."
