He'll now play Rafael Nadal will Dominic Thiem. 

That would be scary for anyone else, but not Thiem. He's the only player to have beat Nadal on clay all season. And in straight sets, too, at the Rome Masters.
...
DOMINIC THIEM BEATS NOVAK DJOKOVIC 7-6, 6-3, 6-0! !!!
...
MATCH POINT! 
...
TRIPLE BREAK of serve? You'd better believe it! 
...
4-0!!!!!! Thiem only two games way from the biggest upset of the tournament so far. 
...
And 2-0 becomes 3-0. Thiem has a double break of serve. Crazy stuff here, and Djokovic is sliding and going into athlete-attack mode. It's not helping. Thiem concentrating quite singularly on the job at hand.
...
He sends a few backhands all over the place - and skies a couple. Thiem's even committed more UE. But Djokovic is netting easy shots.

1-0 to Thiem in the third set.
...
AND THE BREAK OF SERVE IN SET 3! What's stopping Dominic Thiem? Nothing, it appears. 
...
THERE'S THE SET! DOMINIC THIEM WINS THE SECOND SET 6-3 for a two sets to love lead!

...
An easy service hold for Djokovic - to love! 5-3 to Thiem now though, and he's serving for the set.
...
Couple of break points for Novak Djokovic ...but Thiem pulls it back in to deuce - and WINS the game! He's leading 5-2 now and only one game away from leading Novak Djokovic two sets to love. WHAT? 
...
Djokovic holds a service game. But this lag will have got to him. And the signs of tiredness (mentally, perhaps not so much physically), are showing! Dokovic sends a routine return into the net and he looks..disappointed, for lack of a better word.
...
...
Superb stuff and he slides into the net with a stunning backhand drop shot. Djokovic goes running to retrieve it and takes a spill there. He's okay.

But Thiem has the early break of serve! 

...
Dominic Thiem breaks in set 2 to lead 2-0!!!!!!
...
What is this? Usually once the adrenaline's worn down, players lose momentum. Thiem appears to be gaining it. He slots a forehand BEAUTIFULLY down the line and this is BREAK POINT #3. 
...
Some great forehands from Thiem here and he seals the first game of the second set quickly. 1-0
...
18 W:UE for Thiem, 11 W: 17UE for Djokovic. Not much separating them.
...
This is obviously about the game to a large extent. But it's not just about the game. Dominic Thiem has exhibited singular mental fortitude here and he seals out the tiebreak 7-5. 

Dominic Thiem takes the first set 7-6. Are we witnessing the makings of an upset?
