He didn't cast his eyes toward the support team in his box, or send his racquets out to be restrung.

The two had battled it out for the French Open title earlier this year, but that match at Rolland Garros was a damp squib compared to this one for on the crimson surface, Nadal steamrolled his opponent in straight sets. "Not insane, but tough", Nadal said. It was a step forward for me in the dynamic of the tournament.

That's just what the 17-time Grand Slam champion did over the course of a 4-hour 49-minute epic that concluded at 2:04 a.m. on Wednesday, September 5. It's a match that we know each other very well. "It was a very tough start, I tried to stay in the match in the second set", the Spaniard said on court.

The disappointment of failing to create a first match point seemed to weigh on him in the tiebreak and he played it dreadfully, showing rare confusion in going 0-3 down and then losing it 7-4.

"Maybe not if the player is inferior to you, but if it he's not inferior, or is of a similar level".

After suffering a first set "bagel", Nadal had to battle back from breaks in the third and fourth sets before seeing off the first top 20 player he had faced at the US Open since 2013.

Rafael Nadal acknowledged he was fortunate to claim a thrilling US Open quarter-final victory over Dominic Thiem, who he conceded did everything possible to claim victory.

"I am very sorry for Dominic, he's a close friend on tour, a great guy and a great player".

The defending champion has been severely tested in each of his last three matches, with Karen Khachanov and Nikoloz Basilashvili also taking a set off him, but the 32-year-old remains one of the greatest fighters in sporting history and he overcame another major hurdle.

World number one Nadal lost the opening set 6-0 after being outpowered by the Austrian ninth seed in New York, BBC Sport reports.

Though Thiem denied him at first, breaking back to get proceedings back on serve, an error-strewn game from the Austrian No. 1 allowed Nadal to level. He viewed the match as an important experience in his young career.

The Nadal who was gassed and wearing a cooling vest during breaks in the first set was no more.

"Then the third set happened - he served for the set - then I won two games in a row and took the set". For even though Thiem had won more points, been ahead in three of the five sets, powered 74 winners, he froze in the big moments while Nadal flew.
