Rafael Nadal defeats Dominic Thiem in US Open quarter-final

Nadal advances to face Thiem in U.S. Open quarterfinals

Williams, a six-time champion who missed last year's US Open as she gave birth to her daughter Olympia, is on a mission, seeking a title that would see her match Australian Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 major titles and let her avoid her first year since 2011 without a Grand Slam crown.

Seeking his 18th grand slam trophy, Nadal was stunned in a first set won to love by Thiem before the Spaniard came back to take the next two.

Del Potro will no doubt head into that match with real confidence after seeing Thiem's success in hitting through the three-time victor, while the amount of time spent on court can't be helping Nadal's troublesome knee.

The ninth-seeded Thiem won in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2, 7-6 (7/2) in two hours and 36 minutes. The conditions were tough.

Juan Martin del Potro (Arg) bt Borna Coric (Cro) 6-4 6-3 6-1, John Isner (USA) bt Milos Raonic (Can) 3-6 6-3 6-4 3-6 6-2.

Nadal's ability to look only forward and forget what went before is one of his most important strengths and he set about turning around the match, closing in on the baseline, forcing Thiem to play one more ball and, eventually, to go for too much.

After barely getting through a almost 4 1/2-hour test in the third round, and having tape wrapped under his right knee, too, defending champion Rafael Nadal tries to get back to the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows by beating 37th-ranked Nikoloz Basilashvili. "So I didn't face one break point, and I didn't feel so much pressure on service games", said Thiem.

"He's a fantastic player", said Nadal.

"I'll need to play my best match of the tournament".

"They are both players, I ve played them a bunch of times". Serving for the set at 5-3, Nadal got broken as well after a deep return from Thiem but he managed to clinch the set with another break in game 10, forcing an error from Dominic to level the overall score at 1-1. And also the court‚ I think‚ made a big difference.

His victory against the world number one in the Madrid semi-finals ended Nadal's 50-set clay win streak which began after the Austrian had beaten him in Rome 12 months earlier. "Really going to have to focus on my game, continue doing what I'm doing".

Having surivived two five-set thrillers to reach the fourth round, Wimbledon runner-up Anderson ran out of steam on Sunday and bowed out tamely. On clay, it's one of the biggest challenges in sports to beat this guy or to compete with this guy.

Del Potro reached the semi-finals for the third time, defeating John Isner 6-7 (5/7), 6-3, 7-6 (7/4), 6-2 and ending American hopes of a first men's champion at the event since 2003.
