long rally. Thiem blast the BH DTL to force the FH error from Khach. Will serve for the set now.

This match has resulted so much easy for Thiem than I expected.
Was Khach a false dawn his victory against Delpo?

Well, my prediction of a Nadal vs Thiem is still alive! :) I regard them as the two best clay players in the world so it would make sense for the two of them to make it to the final. Unfortunately Djokovic is the best player in the world overall and is hungry to win ): My hopes are still alive though.

When was the last time the top 4 seeds all made it to a SF at a Grand Slam?

Very impressive by Thiem today. Khachanov had to absolutely destroy the ball to get it past Thiem, and he got no joy from playing to his BH. The slice is working well for Thiem and his movement is the best of the lot.

He also looked well in control of the match and the rallies - no brain farts, no going for the highlight reel shots. Khach only got to deuce on return twice all match! He had to serve 77% 1st serve just to stay in the 2nd set. Thiem a real contender now.

Thiem was almost exclusively serving the kicker out wide (When doesn't he, amirite?) on ad side today and there was nothing Karen could do to effectively counter this much loved tactic of Thiem's :-D

Loved how he played a lot of deep, heavy forehands into Karen's own forehand, drew a lot of errors and shorter balls. Great match from Thiem (y)

What a shame that there are only two pages in this thread. Thiem is at least the biggest threat to the Big Three on clay. I wonder if more people would pay attention if they thought he had a shot in the next round?

That's why Serena doesn't take Thiem seriously.
