Dominic Thiem: ‘It doesn’t look like foot injury will become a bigger issue’

Dominic Thiem says he is not expecting his foot injury to develop into anything more serious than it currently is.

Thiem has started the year in poor form, crashing out of the Australian Open in the fourth round and only reaching the quarterfinals in Doha, where he was the top seed.

However, he has revealed he has been suffering from a foot injury that he feels ‘every single match,’ which may go a long way to explaining his recent struggles.

He touched upon the issue again in Dubai, where he is the top seed once again, admitting that hardcourts are the worst surface for aggravating the injury.

“Yeah, of course, I mean, on hardcourt, it’s a little bit worse, than on clay,” Dominic Thiem said.

“I can slide it out. It’s a way softer surface. But I mean, I have a little bit of pain there since many, many years, actually, since a very young age.

“That’s why it’s not bothering me too much. Sometimes it’s worse, sometimes it’s better.

“But as of now, it’s doesn’t look like it’s gonna be a bigger issue. And I hope it’s gonna stay like that.”
