Dominic Thiem The Future of Tennis
« on: Today at 06:08:09 AM »

Rising Star

Showing steady improvement over the past 5 years since turning pro in 2011, it appears as though the Austrian is on the cusp of cracking the top 10 of the ATP.  After a tight first set in which he dropped the TB,  Dominic managed to hold off Sascha Zverev (Rising Star #2? :)) in the 3rd of Roland Garros and marches into the 2nd week looking solid.

Although I don't much care for the buggy whip forehand, when he comes over his 1HBH my jaw drops.  I can't believe how much torso rotation he gets. :scared:  The fluidity of his serve looks as effortless as Sampras' and his instinct for using it gets better each year.

I expect/hope that by the end of next year he is solidly entrenched in the top 10 and pushing for his first slam.  :fingers crossed:
CONK da ball!!!
