Bio He is an Austrian professional tennis player. His career-high ATP ranking is world No. 4, which he first achieved on 6 November 2017. He is the second highest-ranked Austrian player in history, behind Thomas Muster (No. 1, 1996). He has won 16 ATP Tour singles titles and reached three Grand Slam finals.
As a junior, Thiem was ranked world No. 2. He qualified for the 2011 French Open Boys' final, and won the 2011 Orange Bowl. As a professional, he made it to the finals of the 2018 and 2019 French Open, losing to Rafael Nadal on both occasions, and the 2020 Australian Open, where he lost to Novak Djokovic. In 2019, he beat Roger Federer to win his first ATP Tour Masters 1000 title at Indian Wells.

Thiem is primarily an aggressive baseline player, and uses a single-handed backhand. The Roland Garros website described him as an "heir to the throne.

Thiem was born to Wolfgang and Karin Thiem, both of whom are tennis coaches. He has a younger brother, Moritz Thiem, who is also a professional tennis player. Thiem grew up in Lichtenwörth and began playing tennis when he was six years old.

Thiem’s father, Wolfgang, began working as a coach at Günter Bresnik’s academy in Vienna in 1997, when Thiem was just three years old. Bresnik became Thiem's coach formally from age nine.

Thiem reached an ITF Junior world ranking of No. 2 (combined singles and doubles). He lost a close final match at the 2011 French Open Boys' event, to Bjorn Fratangelo, in three sets. Thiem completed his junior career by winning his last three singles tournaments, culminating in taking the singles title of the prestigious Dunlop Orange Bowl.
In 2011, Thiem received wild cards to the main draw of Kitzbühel, Bangkok and Vienna. In Vienna, Thiem recorded his first ATP win, over Thomas Muster, before losing to Steve Darcis in the second round.
In 2014, at Bet-at-home Cup Kitzbühel, Thiem was seeded fifth. In the quarterfinals he defeated defending champion and number two seed Marcel Granollers in straight sets. He then beat Juan Mónaco to reach his first ATP World Tour 250 final at the age of 20. In the final, he fell to David Goffin despite being a set up.
In 2015, Thiem won his first career ATP World Tour title in Nice, France, defeating Nick Kyrgios, Ernests Gulbis and John Isner en route to winning a close three-setter against Argentina's Leonardo Mayer in the final. He next participated at the 2015 Croatia Open Umag as the fourth seed, giving him a bye into the second round. With wins over Dušan Lajović and compatriot Andreas Haider-Maurer (after both players retired), Thiem advanced to the semifinals, where he came back from a set down to win against Gaël Monfils and earn himself a place in his third career final. In the final, he defeated Portugal's João Sousa in straight sets to claim his second career ATP World Tour title. A week later, Thiem won his third title at the 2015 Swiss Open Gstaad, beating David Goffin in the final, and winning back to back tournaments for the first time.
At his home tournament, the 2015 Generali Open Kitzbühel as the No. 1 seed, marking the first time he entered an ATP tournament as the top seeded player.
In 2016, at the Argentina Open, where he was seeded fifth, he beat Pablo Carreño, Gastão Elias (saving a match point), and Dušan Lajović to reach the semifinals. There, he upset top seed, world number 5 and defending champion Rafael Nadal in three sets after saving another match point. Thiem went on to win his fourth ATP title by defeating Nicolás Almagro in three sets. In February, Thiem won the Mexican Open in Acapulco: his first hard court title, the four others having come on clay. He defeated Damir Džumhur, Dmitry Tursunov, Grigor Dimitrov, Sam Querrey and Bernard Tomic en route. This was his first ATP 500 title and second crown in the space of three weeks. In Nice, Thiem successfully defended his title, beating Alexander Zverev, having not lost a set until the final. At the French Open, Thiem reached the semi-finals of a major for the first time by defeating Íñigo Cervantes, Guillermo García-López, Alexander Zverev and Marcel Granollers before defeating David Goffin in the quarter-finals. He lost to No. 1 and eventual champion Novak Djokovic in the semis. By reaching this semifinal he also made his debut inside the Top 10 of ATP Rankings as world No. 7. In early June, Thiem competed at the 2016 MercedesCup as the 3rd seed, defeating Sam Groth in the second round. He reached the semifinal of a grass tournament for the first time after coming from a set down against Mikhail Youzhny. Then he defeated 1st seed Roger Federer for the second time in a row surviving two match points. In the final, he defeated Philipp Kohlschreiber in three sets over the course of two days to win his first ever grass court tournament. With the win he became only the ninth active player – and 29th in Open Era history (since May 1968) – to win three titles on three different surfaces in the same year.
In 2017, Thiem reached his first final of the year, with wins over Janko Tipsarević, Dušan Lajović, Diego Schwartzman, and Albert Ramos Viñolas. Thiem would take his first title since June, defeating Pablo Carreño Busta in the final. This was Thiem's eighth ATP World Tour title, his sixth on clay, and his second at the 500 level. He made his 12th ATP tour final, and second of the year, in Barcelona losing to Rafael Nadal in two sets. En route he scored his first win over a current world No. 1, beating Andy Murray in the semis in three sets. In May 2017, at the Mutua Madrid Open, Thiem defeated Jared Donaldson, Grigor Dimitrov (in a very tight 3rd-set tiebreaker), Borna Coric, and Pablo Cuevas to play against Rafael Nadal in his first Masters 1000 final. At the French Open, Thiem did not drop a set in getting past Bernard Tomic, Simone Bolelli, Steve Johnson, Horacio Zeballos and defending champion Novak Djokovic, before losing to eventual champion Rafael Nadal in straight sets. His win over Djokovic meant that he has now beaten each of the Big Four (Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and Murray) at least once.
In late December 2017, Coach Galo Blanco was added to Thiem's team. In mid-February 2018, he won his ninth ATP Tour title at the Argentina Open, his second in Buenos Aires, defeating Horacio Zeballos, Pella, Monfils, and Aljaž Bedene. This was his first title in nearly a year. In Madrid, where he would again face Nadal in the quarterfinals. This time, he came through to win, ending Nadal's 21-match and record 50-set winning streak on clay. Thiem had been the last man to take a set and win against Nadal on clay the previous year in Rome. Thiem then played in Lyon, where he made it to the final beating Roberto Carballés Baena in straight sets, before coming a set down against Guillermo García López with the match lasting over two days. He then defeated Dušan Lajović in three sets in the same day before coming back from a set and a break down against Gilles Simon in the final to win his 10th ATP title. At the French Open, Thiem advanced past Ilya Ivashka in straight sets and Stefanos Tsitsipas and Matteo Berrettini in four sets. He faced Kei Nishikori in the fourth round, winning the first two sets 6–2, 6–0, before a late resurgence saw Nishikori take the third set. However, Thiem was able to take the fourth set 6–4 to win the match. In the quarterfinals, he faced second seed Alexander Zverev in Zverev's first major quarterfinal, defeating him 6–4, 6–2, 6–1. In his third consecutive French Open semi-final, Thiem defeated unseeded Marco Cecchinato in straight sets to advance to his first Grand Slam final. He then lost in straight sets in the final to Rafael Nadal, who won his 11th French Open crown. At the US Open,he defeated Mirza Bašić, Stevie Johnson, and Taylor Fritz to reach the fourth round for the third consecutive year. There, he faced 2017 finalist and fifth seed Kevin Anderson, defeating him in straight sets to reach his first Grand Slam quarterfinal on hard court, where he faced defending champion and top seed Rafael Nadal. This was their first ever meeting on a surface other than clay. In a shocking start to the match, Thiem won the first set 6-0, yielding only 7 points to Nadal. This was the first set Thiem had ever won against Nadal at a Grand Slam. Nadal took control and won the second and third sets, despite Thiem serving for the set at 5-4 in the third. In the fourth set, Thiem was again up a break early, but lost his lead and won the set 7-4 in a tiebreaker. In the fifth set, after finding himself at 0-40 on serve at 5-5, Thiem won five consecutive points to prevent Nadal from serving for the match. Nadal narrowly won the fifth set tiebreaker 7-5 to bring the match to an end at 2:04 AM local time, after 4 hours and 49 minutes of play. Thiem followed up his US Open run with a title win at the St Petersburg Open. He defeated Jan-Lennard Struff, 8th seed Daniil Medvedev, 5th seed Roberto Bautista Agut, and unseeded Martin Kližan to secure his ninth ATP 250 title.
At the Indian Wells Masters, he defeated Ivo Karlovic, got a walkover through Gael Monfils, and beat Milos Raonic en route to the final, where he defeated Roger Federer in three sets to claim his first ATP Masters 1000 title. As a result, he returned to his career-best ranking of World No. 4. Coach Nicolas Massu was a new addition to Thiem's team about a month before the Indian Wells tournament.
In Barcelona, he captured his third career ATP 500 title. En route to the title, Thiem did not drop a set, including in his 6-4 6-4 win over eleven-time champion Rafael Nadal in the semifinal, his fourth win on clay over the Spaniard. Thiem defeated Russian Daniil Medvedev 6-4 6-0 in the final. Thiem was seeded fourth at the French Open, defeating Tommy Paul, Alexander Bublik, Pablo Cuevas, 14th seed Gaël Monfils, and 10th seed Karen Khachanov to reach his fourth consecutive semifinal at the tournament. There, he faced world number 1 Novak Djokovic, who had not lost a Grand Slam match in over a year, having won 26 consecutive matches. In a four-hour match stretching over two days, Thiem defeated Djokovic in five sets, advancing to his second major final. In the final, he again faced Rafael Nadal. After a competitive first two sets, during which time Thiem won the second set 7–5, Nadal steamed to victory, taking the third and fourth sets 6–1.
