Austria's tennis star Dominic Thiem completed a training session on the tennis court for the first time on Tuesday after suffering an injury to his right wrist. “Back on Court”, the 27-year-old wrote on Instagram that evening about a few impressions from this session. Thiem did his blows with his left hand, of course, and a forearm splint was still attached to the right.
The world number six suffered the injury on June 22nd at the ATP tournament Mallorca. It is a small tear in the tendon sheath and also in the capsule around the tendon sheath. He hopes to compete at the US Open in New York from the end of August. Thiem had won his first Grand Slam tournament at this event last year.
