During the Tour suspension, Dominic Thiem joined the most tournaments out of all players on the ATP & WTA tour and that included a lot of testing for COVID-19.
The 26-years-old Austrian was pretty successful so far during the Tour suspension. First, he has won the Austrian Pro Series which was played over June. In between, he flew to Belgrade where he triumphed at the Adria Tour. And now, Dominic Thiem plays the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS) where he’s doing also exceptionally.
After that, he’ll move to Kitzbuhel for his own Thiem’s 7 tournament which starts on 7th July 2020. And soon after that one ends, he’ll move to Berlin for bett1 Aces. This proves that ‘Domi’ has a really packed schedule and while traveling from country to country, he often needs to be tested for COVID-19. In a recent on-court interview in his match at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS), he said:
“I was pretty emotional last week, since, everybody knows, so it’s good to be here. I think I’m the most negative guy on Tour.” When the interviewer said, that at least he has a lot of positive tennis, Thiem replied: “Hopefully, that’s the only thing that stays positive.”
