Dominic Thiem is a professional tennis player from Austria, and was born on September 3, 1993. Thiem currently resides in Lichtenworth, Austria, and stands at 6 feet and 1 inch. He plays right handed and is coached by Gunter Bresnik.
Thiem is known for being a rather aggressive baseline player who is also great at defending. He has displayed groundstrokes that are solid on both wings, and has a powerful single-handed backhand. He is currently known as one of the few younger tennis players who are able to use single-handed backhand. His backhand is effective against handling the high-bouncing balls, which is a common challenge for most single-handers. In addition to his excellent strokes, Thiem has also been praised for his mental game, and his tie-break win percentage.
Thiem turned pro in 2011. During the said year, he received wild cards to events in Bangkok, Kitzbuhel, and Vienna. The following year, he was also invited to other big events and was seen at quarterfinal rounds of some events.
A year later, Thiem was able to reach his first ATP final, although was not able to have any major titles or victories.
Despite having turned pro only in 2011, Thiem now has a record of 190 victories and 114 losses. He has 9 career titles to his name as well. However, he has not won a Grand Slam tournament yet, but has played in all the Grand Slam events. He is ranked at No. 7 as of March 2018, but was ranked as high as No. 4 as of November 2017.
