Biography

Overview

Yielding a smooth one-handed backhand and an ability to produce breath-taking power, Thiem is touted as a future Grand Slam champion. He is a proven threat on all surfaces and reached his first major final at Roland Garros in 2018. This is his second Laver Cup appearance, returning after helping Team Europe win the inaugural event in 2017.

Personal

Thiem was introduced to the game at age six by tennis coaching parents Wolfgang and Karin, with his younger brother Moritz also a lover of the sport. He idolized countrymen Stefan Koubek and Jurgen Melzer as a child. He is big football fan and founded his own club, called 1.TFC Matzendorf, in Austria.

Career

Although clay is Thiem’s favorite surface, he won his biggest career title on Indian Wells hard courts in early 2019. His victory over Roger Federer in the final came shortly after adding Chilean Olympic gold medallist Nicolas Massu to his coaching team. Boasting the second-longest current streak inside the world’s top 10 (only bettered by Rafael Nadal), Thiem has cemented his place among the game’s elite.
