Nadal beats Sock to reach Italian Open quarterfinals

19 May 2017, 09:10 | Joan Schultz

Seven-time champion Rafael Nadal is out of the Italian Open after a straight-set defeat by Dominic Thiem in the quarter-finals in Rome.

However, the 23-year-old, who has only once before beaten the Spaniard, was not to be denied in Rome and produced a sensational performance to seal spot in the semi-finals.

The 4-6, 3-6 defeat to Thiem was Nadal's first of the season on clay, ending a run of 17 straight victories, and only the third and fourth sets he had dropped on his favoured surface in 2017.

The second set went with serve until the seventh game when Thiem broke and raced to the end 6-3.

But the Austrian dismissed both and saved another at advantage Nadal, evenutally coming through the game then to win 6-4, 6-3. One backhand victor from the back of the court with Nadal at the net was especially memorable.

He will face either world number two Novak Djokovic or Juan Martin del Potro in the semi-finals.

The 30-year-old Nadal has won consecutive clay-court tournaments in Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid.

The Spaniard will now focus on the French Open, where he will be aiming for a 10th title at Roland Garros.
