Since Dominic Thiem stormed the tennis world, he has continued to impress many people. All credit goes to his parents, who are enthusiastic about sports and who let him develop a special love for tennis.
Thiem started playing tennis at the age of 6 after having trained for several years at a local court. When his parents went to training, they usually took him with them and taught him the basics of racket sports. With time, the young lad began to find the sport interesting. He went so far that he idolized tennis veterans like Stefan Koubek and Jürgen Melzer and trained hard to become like them.
His first coach, apart from his parents, was Günter Bresnik, who started training him at the age of nine. Today Thiem can look back on ten ATP Tour titles in singles. In addition, on 6th November 2017, he was listed as world number 4 on the ATP ranking list.
The Austrian superstar won his first ATP World Tour title in Nice (France) in 2015 and later at the Argentina Open in 2016. His outstanding career has continued to earn him praise from the tennis community and beyond. The tennis star is famous for hitting the ball at a speed of 145 mph or 233 km/h, and this rare ability is one of the reasons why he is respected in the sports world.
Thiem has also experienced some heartbreaking moments in his career, the most painful being his defeat to Roger Federer at the 2016 Brisbane International Tennis Tournament.
In addition to his fast-growing career on the court, Dominic once served in the Austrian military as part of the Austrian conscription. His service in the army lasted six months, beginning in November 2014 and ending in April 2015, and while he was serving he continued to play on tour.
