Thiem, in version 3.0

Rafa Nadal appointed his heir at Roland Garros last year

Rafa Nadal appointed his heir at Roland Garros last year. "I'm sure you'll win here someday", gave Dominic Thiem his ears after giving him a review (6-4, 6-3 and 6-2 ). It was the first Grand Slam final for the Austrian, who was already warning when he reached the penultimate round in 2016 and 2017. Since then, his game has matured with the reinforcement of winning again the land tyrant (and go four) , has conquered his first Masters 1000 in Indian Wells defeating Roger Federer and has shown mettle to withstand the onslaught of Novak Djokovic in a five-set match. The first for him in Paris in the agony of the five mangas.

The Austrian has an iron fist and character. A fighting spirit similar to the one forged by Tío Toni in Rafa with endless days in Manacor. Thiem hardened his body and mind with the almost military training to which he submitted the extravagant trainer Sepp Resnik for three years since 2012. The gym was changed by races of 15 kilometers at dawn. The weights, by trunks of 25 kilos that had to be carried. The wardrobe was the forest and the pool, a frozen lake. What does not kill you makes you stronger. And he came out alive. Now, it shows its version 3.0.
