‘I have recovered and I’m ready for London,’ says Dominic Thiem after Vienna injury

Dominic Thiem says he is heading to London to play the ATP Finals after recovering from his Vienna injury.

Thiem crashed out of Vienna in the quarterfinals due to blisters as an unrelenting Andrey Rublev powered past him before winning the tournament.

He pulled out of the Paris Masters almost immediately to give himself time to recover for London, and he appears to have been successful.

“After losing in the quarter-final at my home tournament in Vienna I recovered from my foot injury,” he told his website.

“It took me two, three days to recover, then I started my preparation for the final in London at the O2-Arena.”

“On Wednesday I am leaving for London with a ‘mini-team’. The final goal of 2020, the memories of last year are nice!

“During the group phase I beat Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, I beat Alexander Zverev in the semi-final.

“Then I had that 6-7 in the third set against Stefanos Tsitsipas. It were just a few points that decided heaven or hell.”

Thiem is yet to rekindle his US Open form since winning his maiden Grand Slam, but he will be one of the favourites at the O2.
