Dominic Thiem Roland Garros 2020

‘Roland Garros is my biggest goal,’ says Dominic Thiem


US Open champion Dominic Thiem has his sights set on a first Roland Garros title and admits it is the biggest goal in his career. 

The World No 4 had a disappointing Australian Open, crashing out in straight sets to Grigor Dimitrov in the fourth round after a remarkable comeback against Nick Kyrgios.

The Austrian is now looking towards his favourite Grand Slam Roland Garros and the two-time finalist has admitted the French Open is the Major he really wants to win.

“Roland Garros is by far the tournament where I have had the best results in the past,” said Thiem.

“A long time ago, I played the final in the junior event aged 18 and 19. After winning that first Major title at last year’s US Open, Roland Garros is my biggest goal and something I really want to achieve.

“The Roland Garros title is something I want to achieve this year, but at the same time, I know that everything has to be perfect; otherwise, it will not happen.”

Dominic Thiem suffered defeat in the final of the French Open in 2018 and 2019 to 13-time winner Rafael Nadal, before losing in the quarter-finals to Diego Schwartzman in last year’s event.
