20-year-old Brazilian Thiago Seyboth Wild joins Chris Oddo to talk about the most important elements of his game and his biggest heroes.
In this week's episode of the Lucky Letcord Podcast we are joined by Brazil's Thiago Seyboth Wild.
The current World No.114 recently became the youngest player from his country to claim an ATP title as well as the youngest player to win a Golden Swing title in South America since Rafael Nadal in 2005.
Near the end of the interview Thiago talks about the two players he would most enjoy facing, and talks about why it would be easier for him to play against his idol Nadal, compared to practicing with him.
We talk to the 2018 US Open Boys Singles champion about his transition from juniors to challengers to pros, and ask him what are the key ingredients to making it seem so seamless.
We also talk about Thiago's relationship with his father, who has been guiding him since he picked up his first racquet. The 20-year-old, who is has recovered from Coronavirus and is now practicing in Brazil, runs down the key elements of his game that he plans to improve and talks about the importance of having self-belief and a fearless quality.
We also discuss how he developed that blistering forehand, talk a bit about two of his biggest idols, and more!
