US Open champion Dominic Thiem recovers from foot injury and all set for ATP Finals in London
Dominic Thiem has confirmed that he is fit again and has already started his preparations for the season-ending ATP Finals in London.
The world No 3 suffered a surprise quarter-final exit from the Vienna Open at the hands of Andrey Rublev a fortnight ago, but he struggled with a foot problem throughout the match.
He later confirmed that he was once again troubled by blisters and opted to pull out of the Paris Masters in order to recover for the ATP Finals.

As many of you already have seen, unfortunately, I had to withdraw from the Paris Bercy Masters this year, due to an injury on my right foot. My team and I decided that it is best to rest this week to be fully recovered for the ATP Nitto Finals. I’m looking forward being back in Paris next year.
However, he is now fully recovered and ready for London.
“After losing in the quarter-final at my home tournament in Vienna I recovered from my foot injury,” he wrote on his website. “It took me two, three days to recover, then I started my preparation for the final in London at the O2-Arena.”
The Austrian finished runner-up to Stefanos Tsitsipas in last year’s final.
He continued: “On Wednesday I am leaving for London with a ‘mini-team’. The final goal of 2020, the memories of last year are nice! During the group phase I beat Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, I beat Alexander Zverev in the semi-final. Then I had that 6:7 in the third set against Stefanos Tsitsipas. It were just a few points that decided heaven or hell…”
