Clownfils didn’t even have a break point :haha:
great performance from thiem though. Gael had no idea what to do with his groundstrokes. Whenever he tried to go for more he was spraying errors. Ironically this ballbashing suddenly worked when saving break points in the third but it was too late already

Thiem was solid but Monfils started with 0 attitude and remained more or less absent all match, his face showed he was hoping for that last challenge to save him a couple of minutes of extra work.
Great win for Thiem anyway into his first AO QF

He knew gamewise he has nothing on Thiem so he tried to put him asleep to increase his winning chances. Unfortunately he forgot that he is in Australia and it's only in the middle of the night in Europe currently, so his strategy didn't pay off to everbody's surprise.

Only Gael's 76% first serve saved him from a true humiliation here. He won 13 receiving points vs 44 for Dominic. And this is a man who is targeting the top 5 this year and still believes he can win a Slam.

Why does Monfils even turn up? I guess since he hit a few highlight shots he probably considers it a good days work. It would've been a more entertaining match Gulbis went through instead.

Should have been easier, Thiem did not play the break points well and that could be a factor against the remaining field.

Death, taxes, and Thiem owning french pushers.

And yeah, Nadal's chances of winning this tournament are officially gone.



Donations incoming, no? :p
Yep, very bad news for Rafa. Even assuming he gets by Krygios, Thiem is going to be well rested for the QF.

Monfils bent to one of his masters again. Nothing new here. If Kyrgios can’t get it done, hopefully Thiem can take moonballer out.
