After 280 days, Dominic Thiem was back on the pitch in Marbella as part of a game. Austria’s number one was beaten by Argentina’s Pedro Cachin after 81 minutes with 3:6,4:6. Shortly thereafter, Thiem tested positive for Corona. Two days ago, he reported via Instagram that he wasn’t feeling well after dinner. He then took a test – which turned out positive. “After dinner I didn’t feel well and didn’t have a good night. After experiencing mild symptoms, I decided to get tested. Then I tested positive for Covid-19,” Thiem posted.
On Friday, the former US Open winner spoke up in an Instagram story. “First of all I would like to thank everyone for the get well wishes. I’m still in Marbella in my hotel room.” In the meantime, he took another Covid test. This was also positive. “But I feel fine, only have mild symptoms. I’m a little tired, but I hope the test will be negative soon. I hope to be able to return again soon. At the moment I’m just hanging out in my hotel room,” said the Lichtenwörther.
He spends his time reading and watching series. “I’m trying to get fit again as soon as possible,” said Thiem combatively. Thiem would like to serve again at the ATP 1000 tournament in Monte Carlo on April 11th.
