00 – Djokovic – Thiem stills
Novak Djokovic is out of the French Open, knocked out in the quarter-finals, nay, obliterated in straight sets by the number six seed Dominic Thiem.
The much-improved Austrian needed only 20 minutes for the final set.

“I mean, it’s unfortunate to finish Roland Garros the way I have done today. You know, I obviously always expect a lot from myself, but it’s a fact that I’m not playing close to my best, and I know that. Again, I’m trying, as everyone else, to work on the game, and, you know, work on things. Sometimes it works; sometimes it doesn’t,” said a chastened Djokovic.

Also into the semis is Rafel Nadal, who will take on Thiem. Paris is Nadal’s back garden, and the rejuvenated former nine-times champion here would love number 10. He hasn’t won here since 2014.

“I am in semi-finals. That’s all. I am in semi-finals and with a very positive feelings. I played well all the matches here. Until the 5-2, I think I was playing well, too, today. So positive feelings and playing well,’‘ he said.

In the other semi-final Andy Murray will take on Stan Wawrinka.
