Dominic Thiem: Ex-coach Thomas Muster fears falling to 100th place in the world rankings

“I believe that he will not return to where he was until 2023. The coming year will be extremely difficult,” said Muster, who trained Thiem for a few weeks in January 2020 before the player abruptly ended the collaboration.

In the current situation of Thiem you have to “only look at the ranking”, the 54-year-old now explained to the “Kurier”.

Because: “If the Covid points go away, he will be around number 60 in the world. If he cannot defend the round of 16 at the Australian Open, and it will be difficult at the beginning, he will be around 100.”

Thiem is currently in ninth place in the world rankings, and there is no fixed date for the tour comeback.

However, the Austrian wants to play an exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi in mid-December.

Zverev worries: “Question mark is his body”

It’s going to be a tough way back. Alexander Zverev, who is good friends with Thiem, also shares this opinion.

“There is nothing to be shaken about Dominic’s tennis and technology. He will quickly call up these strengths again,” emphasized the Olympic champion at a press conference as part of the current ATP tournament in Vienna.

“The big question mark is his body. This type of wrist injury is tedious for a tennis player, especially with a one-handed backhand,” the world number four from Hamburg continued.

Zverev himself is aiming for the fifth title of the season in the Wiener Stadthalle. In the semifinals, the 24-year-old will get it on Saturday (from 2 p.m. in Live ticker at Eurosport.de) to do with Carlos Alcaraz.
