In a press conference in Vienna Dominic Thiem talked about some themes that are characterizing the first weeks of his season: from the Australian Open to Kristina Mladenovic and Thomas Muster. About the end of the love-story with Kristina Mladenovic he said: "A girl implies commitment, time and concentration.
At the moment I'm not looking for a partner even if I obviously don't close at all. I am sure that in the future you will see a girl in the stands again to cheer for me." He explained again the reasons for the end of his partnership with former coach Thomas Muster: "Many things were written on the matter.
In reality everything was very simple; we both realized that we didn't get along as a player and coach. We saw things differently and we decided to end the relationship. There were no problems." Finally he talked about the recent Australian Open, where he reached and lost the final against Novak Djokovic in five sets: "They were two weeks, and in fact I spent all the time on the plane sleeping!
Everything that happened was very positive. I managed to make a qualitative leap and I approached once again my main goal: to win a Grand Slam tournament. In Australia my concentration didn't decrease at any moment and it was totally different from the past. I think I can still improve and I will work to make this happen."
