Dominic Thiem became the first male player born in the 1990s to claim a Grand Slam singles title, as well as the first Austrian to win the US Open singles title. He is the second-highest ranked Austrian player in history, behind former world No. 1 Thomas Muster. He has won 17 ATP Tour singles titles. He has some of the biggest groundstrokes of the tour, consistently hitting big with both his forehand and his single handed backhand. Generally thought of as a baseliner he has added more variety with the use of slice backhand and more netplay since adding coach Nicolás Massú to his team in March 2019.

As a junior, Thiem was ranked as high as No. 2 in the world. He was runner-up at the 2011 French Open Boys tournament, and won the 2011 Orange Bowl. As a professional, he broke into the top 100 for the first time in 2014. In 2015, he won his first ATP title at the 2015 Open de Nice Côte d’Azur in France.
