Dominic Thiem: “I will need to be in my best form because Vienna line-up is madness’

Dominic Thiem has assured fans he is back to his fittest again after running out of steam at Roland Garros.

Thiem made a major breakthrough by winning the US Open this year, but struggled physically at the French Open just three weeks later.

He will play for the first time since his Roland Garros quarter-final defeat to Diego Schwarzman in Vienna next week, where he is the top seed and defending champion.

This year, however, posts an unusually stellar field, that even has Novak Djokovic playing as a wildcard.

Thiem, though, says he is ready for the test in one of his favourite tournaments.

“I’m fine again now,” Thiem told Der Standard when asked if he was back to 100% after his exhausting back-to-back US Open and French Open.

“The hall looks really good. A very cool thing that we have perfect training conditions here..

“Vienna is a very big goal every year, so I only concentrate on that. I will go into the bubble tomorrow, have three or four good days of training on the field and see that I get close to mine again for Tuesday I’m in top form. That will be necessary in this field this year

“I think I’ve never played such a strong tournament. It’s absolute madness.”
