In a week which saw Dominic Thiem admit that retirement is a possibility if he can't get back towards his best, he continued to struggle this time at the Davis Cup as he needed to rally to defeat World Number 935, Michael Agwi.
After his crowning moment of winning the US Open, it has been a nightmare for Thiem who has struggled to get back to his best after wrist injuries. The Australian Open saw a brutal loss to Felix Auger-Aliassime in five sets and five hours. As a result, it is safe to say that he is not in the best place to begin the 2024 season and against Agwi, he was taken to a first set tie-break sealing it narrowly before claiming the second 6-3.
Thiem had a break twice in the set but never closed it out and despite narrowly winning the tie-break and then claiming the points, it can be construed as cause for concern for the once high flying player who admitted himself that it could be heading towards the end.
He will not play Indian Wells or Miami in the coming weeks either with Thiem deciding to play Challengers instead as he hopes to boost his ranking and gain match practice and victories with a goal to go past the top 100 before the end of the year or he will think about his future.

Today, Thiem ๐™Ž๐˜พ๐™Š๐™๐™€๐˜ฟ ๐™๐™ƒ๐™€ ๐™๐™„๐™๐™Ž๐™ ๐™‹๐™Š๐™„๐™‰๐™ for Team Austria! He defeated Michael Agwi 7:6(6) 6:3. Three setpoints saved. Leaving the tennis court aa a winner after a close duel. Proud of Domi! Matches in Davis Cup are always specific. Win is a win. ๐Ÿ˜Œ
