For today’s Social Slice, Dominic Thiem shares more unfortunate news, Feliciano Lopez makes history, and Wimbledon releases its seedings for the 2021 tournament
Thiem released another update on his condition following an untimely withdrawal from his match in Mallorca.

Yesterday during the match I had a problem with my wrist. I went immediately to do an MRI at the hospital in Palma de Mallorca. The results weren’t that clear and I have decided to go to Barcelona to check with a specialist. pic.twitter.com/aRx7LFmoAX
