The Austrian recalled his beginnings in tennis with the German, a rival he beat to win his first Grand Slam.

Dominic Thiem couldn’t stop laughing. He looked at the corner of Arthur Ashe where his team, led by his coach Nicolas Massú, he celebrated and his smile grew bigger and bigger. It was not for less. The Austrian had just won his first Grand Slam title by defeating Alexander Zverev in the US Open final, after starting two sets down.

The number three in the world could not hide his happiness. However, when it was his turn to give his first speech as a brand new champion, he did not celebrate his achievement, but rather dedicated a few beautiful words to his rival.

SashaWe have known each other since 2014, when we were both ranked close to 200 in the world. We quickly became friends and in 2016 I think our rivalry started again. We share great things on and off the court. And it’s amazing how far our journey has brought us. I’m glad I was able to share this moment with you. And I really wish there were two winners today. We both deserved the title“commented the Austrian.

Thiem, who snapped a 0-3 run in finals in this category, added: “I remember when you told me once that I was going to do it, that I was going to win this title. Today I tell you the same: you will get it for sure. You are going to make your parents, your family, feel very proud. “

The two players had shared an emotional moment on the court, minutes after the end of the match, when they hugged, breaking protocol, and high-fived in a particular greeting, a symbol of the friendship they share.

Of course, Thiem remembered not only his adversary. In addition to the routine thanks to the organizers, the Austrian also greeted those who accompany him every day in his career.

“I hope my family got to see the whole game. I’m sure they suffered a lot. I can’t wait to see them,” he said with a smile. He added: “A special thanks to my team: they deserve this trophy as much as I do.”
