Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.
1.) Thiem Breaks Into Top 3
Dominic Thiem rose to a career-high ranking of #3 in the world this week, which is the first time Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic haven’t held the top three positions since May 6, 2019.
2.) Djokovic Splits Like Spidey
Djokovic’s athleticism is out of this world, and during his semi-final Dubai match against Monfils, he gave us a sharp reminder. On the run, he stretched for a forehand and fell into a split, which inspired comparisons to Spiderman.
Andy returned to the practice court this week after having taken time off to heal from an uncomfortable bone growth associated with his last surgery. The practice appears to have gone well, and he may accept a wild card into the Miami Open, which begins March 25th.
