Thiem's crisis continues and he will not play in Monte Carlo

Through a message on his website, the Austrian tennis player confirmed that he will not play in the first big date of the clay court tour either. "Now I have tough weeks."


Dominic Thiem's reunion with clay, his favorite surface, will have to wait. The Austrian tennis player announced through his website that he will not compete in the next Monte Carlo Masters 1,000 (April 11-18) .

Thiem himself justified his decision in this way. "After Doha and Dubai I needed a break. I'm still not 100%. Sorry, I would have liked to play in Monte Carlo a lot but it won't be like that. Now I have tough weeks ahead in which I have a lot of work to do.

Thiem's own team points out that the tennis player will continue training on clay in Austria before a return to competition that could take place at the Serbia Open in Belgrade (April 19-25) after resigning from the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell, where he will not defend the title won in 2019 by coinciding on the same dates as the Serbian tournament.

Thiem hopes that the Serbian tournament will allow him to get a running start before the big events on clay at the Mutua Madrid Open, the Masters 1,000 in Rome and Roland Garros, where he will try to show his best version after a start to the 2021 season full of doubts.
