Newly-crowned grand slam champion Dominic Thiem has dedicated his US Open triumph to his family for making "so many sacrifices" over the years in support of his career.

(CNN)Newly-crowned grand slam champion Dominic Thiem has dedicated his US Open triumph to his family for making "so many sacrifices" over the years in support of his career.

However, Thiem says the absence of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic only exacerbated the pressure of winning a first grand slam, rather than alleviate it.

With 16 career titles to his name prior to the US Open and a career-high ranking of No. 3, Thiem was widely considered the most likely of the NextGen stars to win a grand slam title.

But following defeats in all three -- at the 2018 and 2019 French Open finals and the Australian Open final at the beginning of this year -- Thiem admits that doubts about whether he'd ever win a grand slam started creeping into his mind.
