Second Serve


Dominic Thiem and former coach Gunter Bresnik are having a “hit” at one another during the tennis hiatus.

Bresnik, now a coach to Jerzy Janowicz, made disparaging remarks about Theim earlier this week, and now the Austrian has retaliated with some verbal jousting of his own.

Bresnik, who said in an interview that Thiem’s father would be no more than a club coach and Thiem a futures player without him, had worked with Thiem since the Austrian was a child (thanks to Austrian sportswriter Jannik Schneider for the translation and tweets).

Thiem has responded to those comments, saying “When he complains about a lack of respect, and says that I owe it all to him, and seriously suggests that I would have been a futures player without him, I have to ask whether he has developed delusions of grandeur.”

“I did not part ways with him without a reason,” Thiem, who parted ways with Bresnik in 2019, added. “Bresnik knows the reasons and at this time I won’t make them public.”
