Dominic Thiem will NOT defend his US Open title

Dominic Thiem has announced that he will not return to the tour in time to defend his maiden Slam title in New York this summer.

The world number six has been hampered by poor form and injury throughout the 2021 season, the latest of which was a wrist injury suffered at the Mallorca Championships just prior to Wimbledon.

Unfortunately, Thiem has not recovered since, and has now revealed that he will not participate in the final Major of the year at Flushing Meadows.

“My recovery was going really well,” Thiem explained via Twitter. “But then last week I hit a ball during training and started to feel some pain again. I went straight to see the doctors.

“We’ve all agreed on being conservative and to give my wrist some time to recover.”

On top of the news that he will not be at the US Open, Thiem revealed that he is ending his 2021 season altogether, meaning he will also not defend his 2020 ATP Finals points and will drop out of the top-10 in the rankings.
