Dominic Thiem Suffers Major Setback Ahead of Wimbledon Championships 2021 at ATP Mallorca

The unfortunate 2021 season of Dominic Thiem continues to create more problems for him as he was forced to retire from his first-round match against Adrian Mannarino at the inaugural Mallorca Championships.

Thiem was playing extremely well and looked confident on-court against the Frenchman. The Austrian was cruising ahead with a commanding lead of 5-2 in the first set.

The injury came up suddenly as Thiem was trying to hit a passing forehand shot. He immediately held his wrist and called up the trainer on-court. There was clear discomfort on the Austrian’s face as the medical time out didn’t help.

While the extent of the injury is yet to be revealed, Dominic Thiem clearly didn’t want to risk continuing the match and paved way for Adrian Mannarino to proceed to the next round at Mallorca.

It was an unfortunate moment for Thiem as he was looking to make a proper comeback ahead of Wimbledon. Irrespective of the state of his injury, the Austrian’s chances of making an impact at SW19 have come down drastically.

Right from the start of the year, Dominic Thiem has been struggling with a lack of motivation to perform well on-court after his first grand slam victory at the US Open last year.
