Indeed, that's how I understood the thread title. Thiem is the only potential French Open champion who is crazy/strong enough to play a tournament the week before the French Open. But this time, the situation is different.Its a bombshell when we talk about Thiem indeed. Good for him.
Yup, the guy was spent physically but mental fatigue could play an even bigger role in his decision (after all he reached his lifetime goal). He has to recharge his body and hunger. He'll be more prone to an early RG upset but if he plays himself into the tournament he'll be a top contender surely.Finally gonna schedule like a top player
The foot is fine he said; Why call it a season ??? There is no injury, only a mental fatigue, that would be absurd to stop now. With some rest, he could be all right for RG, but as guitarra wrote, the draw will be very important for his first round match.Common sense decision. He needs to rest the foot and the mind. The weird turnover will make it difficult to process the slam victory and saving tennis in the process, in time for the French.If the foot is problematic, in all honesty, he should call it a season.Come back physically and mentally refreshed next season. Anybody heard anything about the foot?
