'Defeat will stay with me forever,' says devastated Thiem

US Open Rafael Nadal survives a bagel and stern Dominic Thiem test Anderson crashes out of US Open
Chelsea Rogers | 07 September, 2018, 11:01

"That's one more today", he said after his 0-6, 6-4, 7-5, 6-7 (4/7), 7-6 (7/5) win. Early on, Nadal had no answer to Thiem's attack.

After Nadal roared back to take a 2-1 lead, the fourth set went to a tiebreak. Nadal beat del Potro last year in the semifinals at Flushing Meadows, and again this year in the semifinals of the French Open. Both maintained serves in the 120s and showed little sign of fatigue playing through long rallies more than four hours into the match.

"The conditions have been tough out there, too". I have very powerful ground strokes, and I can even hurt him with them.

He improved to 5-1 lifetime against Raonic. He hit 19 winners in the fourth set-which was an 81-minute mini-classic all by itself-and won it in a tiebreaker.

He is the first Austrian in the last-eight at the US Open since Thomas Muster in 1996. Wilken asked several questions of her own during the first morning of the trial, suggesting she plans to actively participate in questioning since there's no jury present.

"That's definitely the most important thing going on right now in my life, more important than this tournament, " Isner said. "But as long as that baby is still in her belly, I'll be here".

His 12th appearance breaks the Ryder Cup record held by Nick Faldo.

Rafael Nadal's player's box for his thrilling 5-setter on Tuesday night at the US Open had a very special guest.

Nadal leads the series 7-3, with all the meetings on clay.

He pulled back to 3-3, punishing the Nadal second serve, but the top seed moved ahead again immediately, this time his forehand down the line at its unerring best.

The exchange became heated once Jones touched Rubio's shoulder, which prompted Rubio to say, 'Hey, don't touch me again, man'. At one point he badgered Rubio as the Republican answered reporters' questions in a hallway.

Jamie Murray will hope to continue flying the British flag on two fronts as he plays in the quarter-finals of the men's doubles with Bruno Soares and the semi-finals of the mixed with Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

John Isner continued the best season of his career by reaching his first quarter-final in NY for seven years.

"Of course it's disappointing", Anderson said. "It wasn't meant to be".

It's Theim's best ever performance at a US Open, but commentator John McEnroe says the Austrian will need to dig deep to come back from this defeat.

But Anderson couldn't get anything going in this matchup with Thiem, who won 41 of 45 points (91 percent) and never faced a break point.

"For sure, also, this court helped me", Thiem said.

But the 32-year-old rallied to win the next two sets before Thiem forced a decider by winning a tie-break. Nadal was unable to break the rival's rhythm and he found himself 5-0 down after just 20 minutes following another break from Thiem in game five.

Nadal will next play third seed Juan Martin Del Potro for a place in the final.

Rafa went straight to the other court to hug Thiem after winning the match and exchanged words that could only have been of respect. "It was very painful‚" Thiem said.
