Nadal and Thiem quarterfinal match should be a dandy one

Nadal and Thiem quarterfinal match should be a dandy one

"Last year I was almost one point away from doing that too", said Nadal, referring to his close five-setter with Gilles Muller in the Wimbledon fourth round last season. Her footwork wasn't quite as sharp as normal, and she had told the announcers at one point that she wasn't playing at 100%. Right now you're in the tournament, you're playing next tournament next week, and you don't feel it, you know. Kimiko Date was the last to do so at Wimbledon 1996.

So far, their rivalry has been contested exclusively on clay, with Nadal leading the Austrian 7-3 head-to-head.

Meanwhile, defender Sloane Stephens was knocked out.

"I'm just going to try to play the rest of the season as hard as I can and hopefully have some more good results". I didn't convert. I didn't play the big points well, and you don't win matches when you don't take your opportunities. Not that she works on those kinds of improvisational moves while training. I worked really hard on that instead of trying to hit a trick shot or do fancy stuff.

Stephens clawed back to 4-3 and had chances to level up but Sevastova's drop shots caught her off guard time and again and a particularly devilish one presented her with the chance to serve for the match.

Six-time champion Serena Williams shook off a sluggish start to power past eighth-seeded Karolina Pliskova 6-4, 6-3 on Tuesday and into the US Open semi-finals.

"I would say the first really epic match that I played".

Next up for Stephens, who at number three is the highest seed left in the women's draw, is a repeat of last year's quarter-final against Latvian Anastasija Sevastova.

Stephens disputed the concept of being a defending champion after her fourth round win over rival Elise Mertens, and stood by her theory on Tuesday. Her timing was off. Make your opponent play an extra ball.
