Dominic Thiem has ‘very, very good news’ as he gives positive update on wrist injury
It has been a while since Dominic Thiem lifted a racket, but he will soon be able to “slowly start playing tennis again” after it was confirmed that he won’t need surgery on his injured wrist.
The 2020 US Open champion picked up the injury at the Mallorca Championships in June and missed Wimbledon and the defence of his title at Flushing Meadows while he was also forced to call a premature end to his 2021 campaign.
However, there is light at the end of the tunnel he won’t require surgery on his right wrist.

“I had a very important thing today,” he said in a video on social media. “I was in Belgium to decide if I need surgery on my wrist or not and luckily I have very, very good news. I won’t need surgery, it’s looking stable and it’s looking good.
“The next week I have to make it more flexible and strengthen my wrist, do everything to prepare to slowly start playing tennis again. I’m really looking forward to it.
“It has been a long time without the racket and I honestly miss it. A huge thanks to all the fans who supported me during the long months and weeks, I don’t think I would have made it through without you. Big thank you and I see you soon.”
