Austrian tennis player Dominic Thiem has retired due to injury in the match corresponding to the round of 16 of the Mallorca ATP that faced the Frenchman Adrián Mannarino on Tuesday.

Thiem, the world’s number five player, resigned in the first set when he was winning 5-2. After hitting a ball he felt pain and began to complain about his right wrist. After retiring to his bench and having a conversation with a member of the medical service, the tennis player verified that he could not continue playing and communicated it to his opponent between gestures of pain.

He is the first favorite eliminated in a tournament that brings together Serbian Novak Djokovic in doubles on the grass of the Santa Ponsa Country Club; Daniil Mevdeved from Russia, Casper Rudd from Norway, Karen Khachanov from Russia, and Roberto Bautista and Feliciano López from Spain, among others.
