MDP Live - Austrian tennis player Dominic Thiem was once considered one of the men's tennis players who had high prospects.
The world number 16 gained more attention when she won the first Grand Slam title of her career at the 2020 US Open and it marked a resurgence of young players. In order to win one of the most prestigious titles in the world of tennis, he held out in five sets to beat German Alexander Zverev.
Furthermore, in the same season the 28-year-old occupies the highest ranking of his career to date, world No. 3. He had won several titles before claiming the US Open title.
However, the Austrian is going through a tough time after dealing with a wrist injury, an injury that has kept him out of tennis since June last season.
The 28-year-old tennis player, Thiem has decided to participate in the Cordoba Open, Argentina in the 2022 season after being forced to miss the Australian Open. He really hopes to return with a solid performance after a long struggle with injuries.
Therefore, the runner-up of the Australian Open 2020 season trained on clay as the beginning of preparation for their first tournament in the 2022 season.
However, the 2019 French Open runner-up was only able to train for 5 minutes due to a problem that again attacked his wrist. As a result, his plans to start the 2022 season at the ATP level 250 tournament held in Cordoba are now in doubt.
Austrian Thiem's team later confirmed that his recent injury was unrelated to his previous wrist injury and plans to return to action by playing at the Cordoba Open were still scheduled.
At the Cordoba Open, which will be played on clay and starting on January 31, Thiem will be seeded second behind home favorite Diego Schwartzman hoping to impress the home crowd. Chilean tennis player Cristian Garin will also participate in the hope of winning it again after winning the 2020 season. While defending champion, Juan Manuel Cerundolo is also scheduled to compete and defend his title.
