Thiem stuns Nadal at Italian Open

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.

The 30-year-old Spaniard was previously unbeaten on clay this year, having won 17 straight matches.

That run included victories over Austria’s Thiem, 23, in the Barcelona Open and Madrid Open finals.

Yet Thiem dominated this encounter, frequently forcing Nadal behind the baseline to set up a 6-4 6-3 win, reports the BBC.
