Nadal through to semis as Carreno Busta quits

"But I am just trying to sense what is the best thing for me right now".

Shortly before setting out to try and defend the French Open he announced that he had got together with eight-time major champion Andre Agassi, although the American was only in Paris for a week and missed Djokovic's defeat by Thiem.

After squandering two set points in the opener on a blustery Court Suzanne Lenglen, Djokovic's renowned fighting spirit ebbed away quickly and he surrendered the third set in 20 minutes. "I don't know because we don't have the clock on the court, so it's impossible for us to tell". Thiem has so much work to do, and it's probably too much to accomplish in one match.

Nadal, chasing a 10th Roland Garros title, will face 23-year-old Thiem after making the last four without breaking sweat.

Thiem has admitted that Djokovic is simply a bad matchup for him. given the time he needs to produce his groundstrokes, and even this lesser version of Djokovic is capable of capitalizing on the windows players such as Thiem offer with poorly-timed patches of errors. "I'll talk to my coach and my team, maybe change something up and hope that I play a good match on Tuesday".

Thiem had only won one set against Djokovic in five previous meetings and lost easily in the semi-finals here a year ago.

At Rome, Djokovic swallowed up Thiem and spit him out, 6-1, 6-0, but the match came 24 hours after after the Austrian had notched a thrilling victory over Rafael Nadal.

Thiem is playing some of the best and most consistent tennis we've seen from him in a while, but you can't ignore the glaring head to head numbers against Djokovic and the fact they just played a couple weeks ago.

Garbine Muguruza felt she was disrespected by partisan French fans in her loss to Kristina Mladenovic, but Pliskova did not have such issues to contend with in her last-eight win over Garcia. Otherwise, he lost his No. 1 ranking to Andy Murray and lost in the third round of Wimbledon, the first round of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, and the second round of the Australian Open. She bounced back and then saved a match point in the tiebreaker. Nadal had a relatively easy passage on the day, as he was leading fellow Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta 6-2, 2-0, when his opponent retired with an lower abdominal injury.

It is the fewest number of games Nadal has lost on his way to the last four on the Paris clay. Rafael Nadal is in the final 8 on the men's side. It's hard for me to imagine Nadal losing, but if he does I think it'll be to Thiem or Djokovic. Carreno Busta, seeded 20th, needed seven match points to clinch a thrilling 4-6, 7-6 (7/2), 6-7 (6/8), 6-4, 8-6 win over the fifth-seeded Raonic.
