Dominic’s Cause: Thiem Committed To Helping Environment
Dominic Thiem is on a mission this week at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, with his sights set on a first ATP Masters 1000 crown. Having dropped just one set en route to the final, he will face Roger Federer in Sunday’s championship.
While Thiem is highly driven and a passionate competitor between the lines, he carries that same attitude to his endeavors off the court. The Austrian is looking to make the world a better and safer place, rallying behind a cause that is close to his heart: helping the environment.
Thiem supports an organisation called ‘4ocean’, which strives to preserve the world’s oceans and create a more habitable ecosystem for marine life. In less than two years, they have removed more than four million pounds of trash from oceans and coastlines.
“It’s a really good cause. It’s one of the biggest problems nowadays that we face, with all the plastic pollution. I love nature and I’m trying to support this whenever I can. I really hope to attend one of their cleanups and help. It would really be a dream for me.”
Thiem discusses why supporting the environment is so important to him in this ATP My Story delivered by FedEx.
