Career

Dominic Thiem was born on September 3, 1993 and grew up in Lichtenw├Ârth, a small town in Lower Austria. He began playing tennis when he was six. In 2011, at the age of eighteen, the rising talent entered his first pro-level tournament after earning a wildcard into Generali Open in Kitzb├╝hel. Several more wildcard entries followed, ultimately leading to his first win on the ATP World Tour in a match against countryman Thomas Muster at the Erste Bank Open in Vienna.

 

In 2012, Thiem turned pro and promptly won several ITF Futures tournaments. He continued his streak in March of 2013 with a final win at the Futures tournament in Croatia. In February of 2014, he broke into the top 100 of the ATP world singles rankings. His best results in 2014 included second- and third-round appearances at Indian Wells, Miami, Barcelona and Madrid, where he also celebrated his first win against a top-10 player, the No.3-ranked Stan Wawrinka.

 

In 2015 the tennis star won his first title on the ATP World Tour, which advanced him to world No. 31, his highest ranking up until that time. His win against Nicolas Almagro in 2016 in Buenos Aires put him among the top 15 players in the world.

 

The 2016 tennis season began even more auspiciously for Thiem, with his first ever ATP 500 tournament win, in Acapulco, along with several other strong showings. At the 2016 French Open he achieved his hitherto greatest success by making it all the way to the half finals, where he lost against Novak Dokovic. This result put Thiem at No. 7, his first time in the top 10. The happiest moment of his career came when he beat Roger Federer in straight sets in the semi-final on the grass courts of Stuttgart. He went on to take the title, making him the first Austrian to win on grass at a pro tournament. At the end of the season he qualified for his first-ever appearance at the ATP World Tour Finals in London.

 

At the beginning of the 2017 season, Thiem was still looking to regain his form. But then, at Rio, he won his second ATP 500 title.
