Austrian tennis player Dominic Thiem will not participate in the Australian Open, to fully recover from the injury to his right wrist, today announced the former world number three on social media.
“After a short break, my team and I analyzed the situation and decided to make some changes to my start-of-season calendar. I’ll start the season in South America, at the Open de Cordoba, Argentina, at the end of January, so I won’t be playing the Australian Open”, wrote the current 15th world tennis player.
Finalist at Melbourne Park in 2020, Thiem clarified that his pulse is in a “optimum condition” and who is training “usually with a good intensity”, but explained that the decision to miss the first ‘Grand Slam’ of the season, which takes place between January 17th and 30th, is the “certain” to be able to have “a good return to competition”.
The 28-year-old Austrian has not played since he injured his right wrist at the Mallorca tournament in mid-June.
The 2020 US Open winner had planned to participate in the Abu Dhabi exhibition tournament, but eventually withdrew due to a cold, which also led him to forego participation in the ATP Cup, which starts on Saturday, and the tournament in Sydney.
