The following year, Thiem walked out of Acapulco in the quarterfinals, but that didn’t stop him from going to another wild party.
“That is definitely the party for the Acapulco players. I’ll say it in public now, I’ve never done it before, but I won the tournament in 2016 and the week was much more enjoyable in 2017 because I lost in the quarters, but then I had two days to party.
So the best and wildest memories are from 2017,» Thiem revealed on Tennis Channel’s confessional car series.

Thiem, 29, is a four-time Grand Slam finalist and has a Major title in his collection. «Dominic has been to two French Open finals, one final in Australia, and won the US Open, so he’s reached five finals. You still have to think that a Dominic with all the power on clay makes that the French Open is his number one chance, but I think all Slams are possible.
He is very fresh and has very good motivation. He may have five more years left in tennis, so he has a very good chance. Make no mistake, Novak and Rafa will not want to see a fully fit Dominic Thiem back,» Green warned.
