Dominic Thiem knocks out world No 1 Rafael Nadal to advance to Australian Open semi-final
Dominic Thiem did a great job sending Rafael Nadal out of the Australian Open in the quarter-finals.
The world’s number 1 had hoped to break Roger Federer’s record of 20 Grand Slam titles, but that will have to wait after Thiem makes his way to a 7-6 (3), 7-6 (4), 4-6 , 7-6 (6) victory against Alexander Zverev.
Zverev had joked about his rivals: “I will have a cold glass of coke in my hotel room … I hope to see her play for six hours.”
It didn’t take that long, but after four hours and 10 minutes it was Thiem who celebrated another dramatic encounter in Melbourne.
He looked like he might have missed his chance when he played a terribly nervous game in the fourth set in the 5-4 win, but recovered impressively in the tie-break.
Nadal saved two match balls, the second with a HawkEye challenge after a Thiem praise came in, but the Spaniard made a forehand on the third.
Thiem, beaten by Nadal in the last two French Open finals, had never reached the last eight in Melbourne. If he stays in this form, he has a good chance of winning his first Grand Slam title. Top News stories.
