10 June, 2018, 20:28
The victor of the French Open will be determined this weekend, with the womens' finals being scheduled for Saturday and the men's on Sunday.
Nadal won the second set in 53 minutes.
The top seed went 2-0 ahead in the second set as he wore Thiem down in lung-burning rallies, leaving the Austrian screaming in frustration.
Djokovic had also squandered three set points in the second set and failed to serve out the fourth in the ninth game after being 5-2 in front. The Austrian has improved on the return serves here to equalise the game. He already defeated great players, such as Djokovic and Goffin after being on the verge of elimination in the first round. The only reason it does not rank even higher in this list is that it was punctuated by several extraordinary errors by Djokovic, culminating in a shanked set-point that would have taken the match into a fifth set.
If there were any reason for a bit of intrigue entering Sunday's match, it was this: Thiem is the only person to beat Nadal on red clay over the past two seasons, doing so at Rome in May 2017 and at Madrid last month.
