Thiem, who lost to Nadal in the Monte Carlo quarter-finals last month, was the last player to beat the Spaniard on clay - at last year's Rome Masters.

Meanwhile, Thiem - who lost the Madrid final to Nadal past year - will face South African Kevin Anderson in the semi-finals on Saturday.

In the Madrid open, as Nadal is marching on top women's players are continuing to struggle in the Spanish capital after top-ranked Simona Halep and Maria Sharapova lost in the Quarterfinals.

"I think it's a combination of, yes, taking the positives, but also being a little tough on yourself and expecting a little bit more from yourself".

Nadal had set a record of winning 50 consecutive sets on a single surface by beating Argentine Diego Schwartzman on Thursday.

Dominic Thiem caused a massive upset on Friday as he knocked out Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals of the Madrid Open.

"I won 50 straight sets on this surface", he said. In short, his chances going into the match did not look good, and despite asking the crowd for advice, Monfils was dismissed 6-3 6-1 by Nadal.

"I haven't been good enough today", Nadal told reporters.

"I think that attitude certainly helps, that perspective on things".

Lajovic gave up a break in the deciding set and made a nightmare start in the tie-break but came from behind to win 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (8/6). In 2018, returning from injury, he lifted his eleventh title in Monte Carlo and then in Barcelona.

Pliskova's 6-4, 6-3 win means she will play either two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova or the talented Russian Daria Kasatkina for a place in the final on Saturday.

Today he encountered the wall of Dominic Thiem, the person seeded #3 in the tournament, and very well considered the best in man in clay amongst the playing players, after Nadal. Anderson hopes to make his third final of the season and his first final appearance ever in a ATP Masters Series.
