“Three or four people must be allowed. It would be extremely risky to travel without your own physio. You need a coach on-site”
The Austrian is not the only one who has spoken against the restrictions at the US Open. Serbian star Novak Djokovic was also not happy about the restrictions at the event.
However, unlike Djokovic, Dominic Thiem has said that he is keen on participating at the US Open despite the restrictions. And that is probably because he wants to finally win a Grand Slam which is something he has been trying to do for years.
He has come close on numerous occasions by reaching the finals of the French Open. However, his best opportunity to win a Slam came this year at the Australian Open. He was leading 2 sets to 1 before Djokovic pulled off an incredible comeback and won the title.
The Austrian star is not going to let the same thing happen again. And, we might see him finally break the reign of the ‘Big 3’ by winning his first Grand Slam at this year’s US Open.
