Dominic Thiem French Open 2021

Dominic Thiem posts injury update as he looks to step up Roland Garros preparations

Dominic Thiem says he has been given the go-ahead to resume practice after recovering from a bout of Covid-19.

The former US Open champion has had a torrid time with injuries since winning his maiden major in 2020, first being bothered by a foot problem and then getting struck by a serious wrist issue.

The latter required surgery, and he only made his return at the Challenger event in Marbella last month.

That comeback lasted just one match as he lost to Pedro Cachin and he tested positive for Covid following his match.

However, he is now ready to step up his recovery again, and is on the entry-list for the Serbia Open next week.

Writing on Instagram, Dominic Thiem said: “I had my medical check at the Red Bull Center yesterday and received the result from my doctors today that I can resume my normal workout routine and practice sessions.

“So my goal for the next couple of days is to practice, get stronger, get back on track.”

Thiem has also accepted a wildcard to play Estoril for the first time as he looks to build some semblance of fitness ahead of the French Open.

“I’ve heard great things about the event and I am looking forward to coming to Portugal to play.”
