Thiem Touches Down In Sydney For ATP Cup
Austria will battle Croatia (led by Borna Coric), Argentina (led by Diego Schwartzman) and Poland (led by Hubert Hurkacz) in Group F. Thiem lost to Hurkacz in their lone FedEx ATP Head2Head meeting this past March at the Miami Open presented by Itau, but holds winning records against Coric (3-1) and Schwartzman (5-2).
Thiem, No. 4 in the ATP Rankings, will hope to bring his inspired form from 2019 into the new year. He lifted five ATP Tour titles, including his first ATP Masters 1000 crown at the BNP Paribas Open (d. Federer), and finished runner-up at Roland Garros (l. to Nadal) and the Nitto ATP Finals (l. to Tsitsipas).
Austria begins their campaign on Saturday against Croatia.
