Thiem spoke of an injury "very different" from Del Potro's

Dominic Thiem was sure of his recovery and explained that his injury is “very different” from that of Argentine Juan Martín del Potro, who dragged the discomfort for years: “I think Del Potro had something different. The players who suffered my injury have come back very, very strong. “

He even set the goal of returning to training normally towards “the end of October or beginning of November”, once his wrist injury had been overcome, and to be at full capacity to return in January 2022: “It would be ideal to come back at the Australian Open”, the tennis player acknowledged in an interview with Austrian public television ORF.

The number 6 in the ATP ranking, explained that the tear in the tendon of the right wrist, which has dragged on since June, is the first serious injury of his career. “It’s a new situation,” said who is working to get used to resting more and assuming that his body does not respond now as he wants.

Thiem will need to wear a splint for a further six weeks before he can do the specific exercises of wrist prior to regular training on the court. “I am in the process of recovery and I am wearing a splint, depending on how everything goes I will be able to start playing normally again. According to some calculations, that will happen at the end of October or beginning of November. That is if everything goes as planned. Now I want to let everything heal well with the splint, “he told Austrian television.

Who also had to give up defending the US Open title that he won last year, also regretted missing the final phase of the Davis Cup, which will be played in Innsbruck (Austria) next November. “It would have been one of the great moments, without a doubt. It hurts to miss it,” he acknowledged.
