Dominic Thiem was asked by Gio Journal what he loves the most about tennis. The Austrian player said: “Well, tennis is such a special sport. What I love most about the game is that I’m alone on the court. I make all of my own decisions and I can be happy with the win or the loss.”
Asked who is the legend he would like to face, Thiem replied: “I think it would be Andre Agassi. He was part of my first memories of tennis. He played some of the first matches I watched on television.” And what about the women’s side? “I think it would be Steffi Graf, because she had such a complete game, a good backhand and slice.
I enjoyed watching her, as well, so I would have really loved to play her.” On how he would like people to remember him, Thiem concluded: “I want them to say they loved to watch me on the tennis court and that they always had the feeling that I gave everything out there.”
As for the legend, Tomas Berdych said: “I would love to play Pete Sampras. It’s very close to my generation but, unfortunately, I missed him by one year on tour. I would have loved to play him! In addition, all greatest players in the history [of tennis] for last 15 years!” Thiem will play in Halle next.
