Rafael Nadal defeats Dominic Thiem in US Open quarter-final

Rafael Nadal

Laughing, Thiem said he did not think Nadal was "really sorry". She stressed her focus would be on "creating an environment of empowerment where all have a strong voice and we are dedicated every single day to athlete safety".

If ever there was a reminder that fans should appreciate the game's largest figures while they can, Tuesday night at the U.S. Open was it.

The 32-year-old Nadal was fortunate to triumph on another hot and humid night at Flushing Meadows, 24 hours after Roger Federer had been dumped out of the tournament by John Millman. Nadal was sweating so much in the 90-degree heat and 50-per cent humidity that a mountain of white towels formed next to his changeover bench.

"Of course, tennis is not forever".

"I could change my return position‚ and this helped me a lot. The only truth is that you have to do things better to be able to fight for the point and fight for the match". And, yes, I played against a great opponent. That's one more today.

And Rusedski believes Thiem's best chance of knocking out Nadal is if he dictates matters from the baseline.

"On clay, I think it´s one of the biggest challenges in sports to beat this guy or to compete with this guy". It's the first time he won the match after that kind of start.

It was the longest match of the 69 that Nadal has played at the U.S. Open.

"But I´m really looking forward to play him on a hard court for the first time". It was a question of a little bit of luck at the end. I think we nearly all the time have great matches.

World #1 Rafael Nadal will look to continue his US Open title-defence when he takes on ninth seed Dominic Thiem, who is competing in his first Grand Slam quarterfinal away from the clay and a fourth overall. "But against him‚ still‚ the most important is to put as many balls back into play as possible".

The conclusion to the near five-hour quarter-final, which ended after 2am local time, came in a tie-break.

Thiem produced a stunning service exhibition‚ winning 91% of points on his first serve and never giving up a break point. As usual, he had to do it without the benefit of many cheap points; he hit just three aces, 15 fewer than Thiem.

Thiem finished with a staggering 74 winners against 57 unforced errors to Nadal's 55 winners against 49 unforced errors.

"I'm so happy to reach another semi-finals in my favourite tournament", del Potro said in his on-court interview.

"Forever I'm going to remember this match, for sure", Thiem said.
