Dominic Thiem withdraws from Wimbledon following wrist injury

After Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal, Dominic Thiem has also announced to withdraw from Wimbledon just a week after he pulled out of Tokyo Olympics due to a wrist injury he suffered in Mallorca.

World number five Dominic Thiem had tweeted a day ago about his wrist injury. He immediately went for MRI in Palma de Mallorca hospital but the results were not clear. The player wanted clear results and diagnosis to decide upon his Wimbledon future and marked to visit a specialist in Barcelona.

Dominic was hoping for positive outcome but unfortunately the result didn’t come good and he was forced to withdraw from the Wimbledon championship.

“After being forced to retire from his opening match at the Mallorca Open on Tuesday due to any injury to his right wrist, Dominic Thiem travelled to Barcelona and underwent further medical examinations. Tests found that there is a ‘detachment of the posterior sheath of the ulnar side of the right wrist’, an injury that will not allow him to compete in the circuit for several weeks. Thiem will wear a wrist splint for 5 weeks before beginning a progressive process of specific, functional rehabilitation to regain mobility as well as muscle strength in his wrist and ultimately return to training on court,” said official communication of Dominic Thiem via twitter.

Thiem apologised for pulling out of three upcoming competitions which were in his calendar namely Wimbledon, Hamburg and Gstaad via official announcement from his twitter handle and told he is determined to come back stronger.
