Thiem stuns Djokovic to reach quarters

The US Open, meanwhile, will become the first grand slam tournament to be broadcast solely on a digital platform in the United Kingdom and Ireland after it was announced Amazon Prime Video has signed a five-year agreement. "Doesn't matter if I am the favourite or I am not the favourite".

Thiem was supposed to give the king of clay a run for his money being the last man to beat the Spaniard on his favourite surface.

"He's playing very good on clay".

"I think I played a great match - the best of the tournament", said Nadal.

Dimitrov made the most of a second-set collapse by David Goffin to reach the Monte Carlo semi-finals for the first time with a 6-4, 7-6 (5) victory. "To win 10 is difficult to imagine, too", Nadal said.

"But it s the ultimate challenge for everybody, to play against him". "But it was my fault when I got broken".

But Djokovic, who still impressed relative to his previous comeback matches at Masters 1000 events in Indian Wells and Miami, could not maintain momentum.

Thiem, a two-time French Open semi-finalist, was the better player for much of the match and won 6-7 (2/7), 6-2, 6-3 despite a battling effort from Djokovic.

Dimitrov finally held, drawing polite applause, but Nadal served out the match with ease.

Djokovic, a two-time winner at Monte Carlo, dropped just eight points as he wrapped up the first set with his opponent well off the pace.

Goffin led 4-0 in the second set but the Belgian missed three set points at 5-4.

The Spaniard broke Dimitrov's serve to love on two occasions in an error-strewn second set, courtesy of forehand errors from the Bulgarian. "He played the last two semifinals of Roland Garros", Nadal said.

The young German Alexander Zverev will take on Kei Nishikori for a place in the final round.

The way he dismantled Thiem, it appears little can stop him from doing so.

Former world No 1 Novak Djokovic will play either Budapest or Barcelona next week as he looks to step up his court sharpness ahead of the French Open.

Nadal, who recently returned from a hip injury that has kept him out since January, would earn his 31st Masters series title - a record - with a win on Sunday.

Following the win, which sets up a meeting with Grigor Dimitrov in the last four on Saturday, Nadal revealed conversations he had with Murray earlier this month, when asked if the top players ever exchange information about injury recovery.
