She will play the victor of Tuesday's night match between Serena Williams and Karolina Pliskova in the last four. Thiem is a top-10 player himself (he's now ranked No. 9), a star in his own right who some consider to be the heir apparent to Nadal. Kimiko Date was the last to do so at Wimbledon 1996. Meanwhile, in the women's side of the championship, Serena Williams admitted she was not at her best during her quarterfinal win over Karolina Pliskova.
But the fact that Nadal won and Federer did not was hardly the only difference in these two matches.
She failed to put up a fight in a one-way first set and soon fell 4-1 behind in the second.
Soon after that, Williams went from trailing, 4-2, to not only taking the first set but also leading, 4-0, in the second. "She has big spin on the forehand".
Before that, seventh seed Marin Cilic takes on Kei Nishikori.
The 29-year-old is in his third semi-final at the US Open and sixth at the majors.
Capitol Police arrest 70 on first day of Kavanaugh hearings
Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit for 12 years and has authored 307 opinions, concurrences and dissents. On Friday, the Trump administration said it would withhold more than 100,000 pages on the basis of presidential privilege.
"I'm going to remember this match forever, for sure", said a dejected Thiem. Not that she works on those kinds of improvisational moves while training. "I was thinking, 'You know, I can play better.' So that was the good news", she said.
"I just play them instinctively, and that's how they work, or don't work sometimes."
Sevastova took five break points to Stephens' two, as Stephens simply seemed unable to find her footing throughout the match.
"I think she played a really good match".
There were signs the Latvian, seeded 19, was getting nervous as unforced errors crept into her game.
"Thank you very much everybody for staying here tonight", Nadal said after the four hour, 49 minute marathon.
Tropical Storm Gordon strengthens in the Gulf
The NHC advisory warned that winds up 70mph can be witnessed as Gordon makes the landfall west of Alabama-Mississippi border. The outer rain bands of Tropical Storm Gordon are producing heavy rain and gusty winds along Florida's western panhandle.
"There's a pattern maybe, because", she said, "because some tournaments I play always good". "Normally he doesn't lose to nobody 6-0".
Certainly was. And that chase-down, tunaround, hook-shot of a passing victor just showed a glimpse of how the No. 3 Stephens can go from defence to offence with flair, as she did repeatedly during her 6-3, 6-3 victory over No. 15 Elise Mertens of Belgium in the fourth round.
Stephens' failure to take her chances became a worrying trend as she squandered a further three break points in the fifth game, and a second Sevastova break to love wrapped up the set.
Pliskova got another chance when Williams batted a forehand into the net, but another booming serve, a backhand victor and an unreturnable serve saw her safely through the danger. So high were the temperatures on Tuesday.
Tsurenko didn't appear bothered by the conditions, but whether it was her health or just first-time jitters, she was off from the minute she stepped onto Arthur Ashe Stadium. What's not working as well [as my down-the-line] is the opening ball towards the backhand of the opponent.
"I can be proud of a lot of things that happened the last couple, the matches that I played, so I'm not going to dwell on it".
