Austrian Dominic Thiem mentioned he has recovered from a foot harm he suffered throughout a event in Vienna and can journey to London this week to participate within the season-ending ATP Finals.
U.S. Open champion Thiem struggled with blisters throughout the Vienna Open last month and his title defence at his house event ended when he misplaced within the quarter-finals.
The world no. three subsequently pulled out of the Paris Masters to offer himself time to get well for the ATP Finals, which is performed between the highest eight males’s single players and doubles groups and will probably be held in London from Nov. 15-22.
“Nothing is quiet in fall – the last weeks have been busy,” the 27-year-old mentioned in a publish on his web site.
“After losing in the quarter-final at my home tournament in Vienna I recovered from my foot injury. It took me two, three days to recover, then I started my preparation for the final in London at the O2-Arena.”
Thiem went down narrowly to Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas within the concluding of last yr’s event after defeating Alexander Zverev within the semi-finals and Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic within the group levels.
“On Wednesday I am leaving for London with a ‘mini-team’. The final goal of 2020, the memories of last year are nice!” he mentioned.
Last week, Thiem’s house nation reported record count of infections from the novel coronavirus. The capital Vienna witnessed a lone gunman kill 4 people in a rampage on Monday.
Thiem referred to as the assault “very, very sad” and mentioned his coach was near the scene.
“It was a week with thousands of thoughts in my mind. My coach Nicolas Massu literally experienced the atrocious terror attack in Vienna, was close having dinner at a restaurant and was locked up until 2:30 at night,” Thiem mentioned.
