Austrian tennis player Dominic Thiem spoke about his motivation.
“My personal freedom on the court and beyond was a factor in deciding to stop working with Bresnik. But at the same time, I think that parting with the coach is perfectly normal, especially in tennis. All this is done periodically. Gunter Bresnik and I worked together 15 years, and it was hard to imagine that it would end – even to me. I am immensely grateful to him, because without him I would not have become the player I am now. But it was just a moment when it was necessary to change something. Gunter gave I have the best base that is possible, but now I needed to take this step to win really big titles. After that, everything got better.
Do Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic Hinder Me? Not. I am very happy to play with them. Moreover, I still have to play when they are finished. I will have a few years without them, and it will be awesome. But at the same time I love to play with them, I love to watch their matches. They make us better, “the New York Times quotes Thiem.
