Dominic Thiem is uncertain about the Wimbledon championship following a wrist injury

Us Open champion Dominic Thiem is not sure about next week’s Wimbledon following a wrist injury. The championship will start on Monday until July 11.

Dominic suffered a right wrist injury while hitting a forehand just before a week of Wimbledon championship starts and was forced to retire against Adrian Mannarino from his opening match in which he was up by 5-2, at the Mallorca Open on Tuesday. The 27-year-old Australian said he will go ahead to consult a specialist in Barcelona to have clear results so that he can make any decision on his involvement at Wimbledon.

“Yesterday during the match, I had a problem with my wrist. I went immediately to do an MRI at the hospital in Palma de Mallorca. The results weren’t that clear and I have decided to go Barcelona to check with a specialist,” tweeted Dominic Thiem

Last week, Dominic joined Rafael Nadal and withdrew from the Olympics on Thursday. The player intended that he didn’t feel prepared enough to give his best in the Tokyo Olympics but was looking forward to competing at Wimbledon. Unfortunately, the tennis veteran faced an early injury which made his journey doubtful at the tournament. The two-time French Open finalist is waiting for the result and a clear diagnosis in the next few days.
