The German learned of Thiem's new manager Galo Blanco.
New minds, new powers – that really works in Team Thiem
Apparently, Thiem did not want to let Bayern's comments sit on him, he now spoke up via social media. And indicated that Stober could be complicit in the former US Open winner's long injury break.
“As you all know, I suffered a crazy injury preparing for Wimbledon. I then worked with a wrist specialist and my team on a rehab plan. In hindsight, one unfortunate mistake not only resulted in me joining the US Open had to skip the entire season, “wrote the tennis star.
“I would have liked to keep this matter private, but after some disappointing media reports, I decided that it was important to also share my point of view,” continued the 28-year-old. Thiem wanted to contact the media at a later date.
“We have already taken steps forward. But I hope this will now allow me to draw a line,” concluded the Lichtenwörther.
