World #1 Rafael Nadal will look to continue his US Open title-defence when he takes on ninth seed Dominic Thiem, who is competing in his first Grand Slam quarterfinal away from the clay and a fourth overall.
At one point it looked like Nadal with cruise to a straight sets victory over Basilashvili but the Georgian fought back with huge seal to force the top seed to show his best self to eke out a victory.
But for all their history, Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem have never played on hard court, and they've never played in NY. I could go very far back like I do on clay usually.
Two days later Nadal, who played without any strapping on his right knee, needed another three hours 19 minutes to overcome Basilashvili. I'm really looking forward to play him on hard court for the first time. It has included brief two-set bouts and rugged three-setters, with seven wins for the so-called "King of Clay", and an admirable, tantalizing three victories for his presumed successor.
Thiem was broken serving for the set and then could not hold on for the tie-break, saving two set points but not a third after planting a volley wide with the whole of the court available.
Thiem will next play either world number one Rafael Nadal, who beat Nikoloz Basilashvili in another pre-quarterfinal. And also the court‚ I think‚ made a big difference. A couple of loose points gifted Kanepi a break in the first game of the second set, however, and she couldn't get back on terms.

Dominic fends off a couple of break points in game six to remain in front but he wasted a game point at 4-3 to lose serve after a big backhand error, letting Rafa level the score at 4-4.
