WATCH: Thiem meets with the media after Paris disappointment


World No. 4 Dominic Thiem has taken a wild card into Mallorca following his opening-round exit at Roland Garros. The inaugural ATP 250 grass-court tournament will be played the week before Wimbledon.

"Now it is essential to learn from this defeat and to get back to work straightaway," Thiem said on social media.

Thiem is the highest-ranked player in the field at the moment, and the only Top 10 player currently scheduled to compete.

So far, the two-time French Open finalist has not entered any other grass events before Wimbledon.

The 27-year-old from Austria and his agent, Herwig Straka, have also stopped working together.

Straka, who runs the ATP event in Vienna, told Austrian press the split had been agreed beforehand and was on the "best of terms" between the two parties. He began representing Thiem in 2019 when the player split with his coach Gunther Bresnik.

Thiem has not announced who will now be representing him.
