There hasn’t been much good news on the Dominic Thiem front, but today the former US Open champion announced he will not need surgery to fix his injured wrist.
“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 the surgery.
“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’s been a pretty long time without a racquet and I honestly miss it.”

Thiem suffered the injury back at the Mallorca Open in June, and the Austrian hasn’t played since.
He won’t play this year but hopes are high he will return for the Australian swing in January. He of course will miss his chance to defend his 2019 Indian Wells title, as well.
