Dominic Thiem kept holding his stomach and looking desperately at his trunk. “Nothing comes of it,” the two-time US Open champion shouted. Weakened by stomach problems, he leaned against the net at Louis Armstrong Stadium in New York and eventually gave up.

As happy as Thiem was on Monday (local time) after successfully making his first Grand Slam match in more than two years, the Austrian’s departure after his second-round duel against American Ben Shelton, who stood alongside him, was equally bitter. 6:7 (1:7), 0:1 was to help. The 29-year-old was then unable to attend the mandatory press conference due to his severe weakness.

First the wrist and head, and now the stomach

“Unfortunately, we do not yet know exactly what it is. There is a stomach virus here at the factory,” said Moritz Thiem, brother and manager of the former world number three, according to the Austrian. Al-Taj newspaper. “Dominique vomited before the match and then had stomach cramps midway through the first set. Then they got so strong that they simply couldn’t continue anymore.”

For Tim, this is the next setback on his arduous road back to his old class. After his biggest success in his career three years ago in New York in the final against Alexander Zverev, he was unable to add more to his 17 successes in the tournament. Due to a persistent wrist injury, he dropped to 352nd in the ATP rankings, and mental problems also affected him.

Now Tim must recover before he makes the next attempt.
