What will Dominic Thiem achieve in his career?

How high do you think can he climb the ranking? When will he reach the top and how many and which Grand Slam titles can he collect?

He may have had a bad start in the 2015 season but still entered the top20 and won 3 titels. I expect him to enger top10 this year and maybe win a slam in 2017.

Re: What will Dominic Thiem achieve in his career?

I have so many hopes for dominic.Ever since he came on tour I ve loved his game and I ve seen huge potential in him.On clay is the biggest chance for a grand slam for him..but he does have to strenghten some areas of his game and in my opinion especially his serve and composure when serving for a set or match.

Difficult to predict, but it would be a shame for this sports Thiem or any other young player not winning a Slam the next few years. He needs to avoid KAndy or big servers since his ROS slightly declined the past months, hope he can improve on clay to get a few important wins at clay masters.

I think he will win a slam or even multiple slams he just need to mature and better shot selection on important points

Few more 500s, 1-3 masters and that's probably it.

I don't see him winning any Slams in the foreseeable future unless he made a considerable step forward in the offseason which I'm not aware of atm.

Tsonga like career. A couple of masters 1000 and few other smaller titles but no slams.

He will never achieve anything if he doesn't bleach his hair again.

Mahut | Thiem | Janowicz | Evans | Murray | Kyrgios | Wawrinka | GOATbis | Fog | Fiasco | Benneteau


Never apologise for following your instincts.

That's pretty optimistic, especially the 2nd prediction.

I expect him to reach the top 10 at some point in his career but that's about it for the moment...

Re: What will Dominic Thiem achieve in his career?

He needs to ditch his Gasquet mentality on hardcourts and start stepping into the court, while flattening out his backhand. At the moment he's too easily bossed around by power hitters.
