Dominic Thiem announces he is to retire at end of 2024

Austria’s Dominic Thiem says he plans to end his outstanding career at the end of 2024.

The 30-year-old, who won the US Open in 2020 and who has been a regular on the UTS Tour as “Dominator”, said he was calling it a day, having battling a wrist injury for much of the past three years.

“My wrist is not exactly the way it should be and it’s not exactly the way how I want it,” Thiem said in a post on social media.

“I’ve had success, I’ve won trophies I never dreamed of. The journey was incredible, all the ups and downs, it was an incredible experience which I am so thankful for.

“But at the end, I came to the conclusion that this decision to end my career at the end of the season was the only right one. I’m very happy with it and I’m super-excited for everything that’s coming next.”

Now ranked 117, Thiem will continue to compete for the rest of the year, including in UTS Frankfurt, which will be held from October 17-20.

It will be Thiem’s third US outing, the “Dominator” having played in 2020 and earlier this year in Oslo.
