Thiem picked up the first two sets in under an hour before resisting a fightback from Japan's Kei Nishikori in a 6-2, 6-0, 5-7, 6-4 victory. I thought maybe it's just soreness or something that would just go away. Despite all this, Thiem remained rock solid on the other side of the net, and though Zverev was able to hold for 5-2, Thiem comfortably served out the second set to take complete control of the match.
Alexander Zverev made his long awaited first grand slam quarterfinal, and no one can say the German did it the easy way. I couldn't serve. I couldn't really do anything. "I will make sure to be ready".
At 7-6 in the closing tiebreaker, he pushed a backhand long. "It was a fourth-round match and everyone is playing good now". I think he rose his level in set three and four.
"So I hope I'm a little bit more experienced in this one".

LeBron James leads Cleveland Cavaliers to finals with victory over Boston Celtics
The possibility existed that a loss Sunday would have been James' last game with the Cavaliers . "That's all that matters". That's despite his Cavs team undergoing several roster changes throughout the season and incurring injuries along the way.
"It's about trying to find a way and trying to win". At 9-8, Djokovic flubbed a forehand, knelt and clasped his hands together as if praying, then raised an index finger as if to plea, "Let me have ONE of these!" I actually came on court.
After looking down and out for much of the third set, second seed Zverev was sacked up by a code violation for being coached from the stands by his father Alexander Sr midway through the fourth set and he vented his anger by instantly breaking for a 4-2 lead.
Cecchinato (it's pronounced cheh-key-NAH'-toe) came through on his fourth match point, looping in a backhand return victor as Djokovic tried to surprise him with a serve-and-volley attempt. He's going to be pumped.
"The first two sets were incredible but then he (Nishikori) raised his levels", Thiem said. If she wins that match, Keys could meet Stephens in an all-American semifinal. "So it's going to be an incredible challenge for me".
"This is a very positive week for me".
We saw a magnificent fightback from Diego Schwartzman yesterday, with the Argentine fighting back from 1-6 2-6 down (and saving match points) to beat Kevin Anderson and move into the quarter-finals. "So who knows? Who knows what could have happened?" "So that's all positives for now".
Canada's Trudeau blasts "totally unacceptable" Trump tariffs, announces counter-tariffs
Ildefonso Guajardo pointed out in an interview today that Mexico actually buys more USA steel than it exports to that country. The EU has threatened retaliatory duties on $3.3 billion of USA exports of products such as motorcycles , jeans and whiskey .
What a tale Marco Cecchinato (it's pronounced Cheh-key-NAH'-toe) can tell, though.
Austrian Thiem will compete in his third straight French Open quarter-final against Zverev, who beat him in straight sets to win the Madrid Open last month, but both are expecting their Roland Garros clash to go the distance.
"This is the best moment of my life", Cecchinato said.
"For me it is a dream", Cecchinato said.
"He played unbelievable and credit to him. I have practiced with him many times in Monte-Carlo", Djokovic said. "I want to be home right now". We trained a lot on hard court, clay courts. "So I'll approach it very seriously".

How fitting is it that Ovechkin scored the game-winner? He raised both arms and hugged whoever was next to him. Ovechkin's career has been a highlight reel of laser shots such as that one but also pained expressions in May.
Rafa Nadal faced no such trouble, although Max Marterer did acquit himself pretty well against the King of Clay, even taking him to a tiebreak, while John Isner was surprisingly outclassed by Juan Martin Del Potro, with no tiebreaks taking place - a real rarity.
