One of the greats is leaving the world tennis stage. As Dominic Thiem announced on his social media channels on Friday, the 30-year-old from Lower Austria will end his active career after the 2024 season.

"The 2024 season will be my last," explained Thiem on Instagram and co. "There are several reasons for this. My wrist hasn't healed as I had imagined. The second reason is my inner feeling. I played long and carefully with the idea of what to do next. It has been an incredible journey for which I am immensely grateful. In the end, however, I came to the decision to end my career at the end of the season. It's the only right decision and I'm very happy with it." He will publish more details in the form of a vlog on Saturday.

Title for eternity
Thiem can look back on a remarkable career, for years the man from Lichtenwörth was one of the best players in the world. Of his 17 ATP titles, his victory at the 2020 US Open marks the highlight of his career.

However, a wrist injury set the former number three in the ATP rankings back in 2021, attempts to fight his way back to the top were unsuccessful and he recently tried his luck at Challenger and qualifying level. Thiem will probably play his last service in October at the Erste Bank Open in Vienna.
