Djokovic, whose struggles with form since a third-round exit at last year's Wimbledon have been well documented, had made a steady start at Roland Garros this year with Andre Agassi in his box for the first time.
The 23-year-old Thiem won 7-6 (5), 6-3, 6-0. Wednesday, June 7, 2017.
"The win here previous year has brought a lot of different emotions". "I have lived on that wave of excitement, I guess, 'til the U.S. Open or so".
"If I think that I don't have chances, I will not play".
This time a year ago, he was celebrating after finally shaking the French Open monkey off his back, and also becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four Grand Slam titles simultaneously.
Thiem must now upend familiar foe Rafael Nadal - who progressed when Pablo Carreno Busta retired while trailing 6-2 2-0 - to make a maiden grand slam final. "Now I beat Novak". On Friday (I play) Nadal. The other men's quarterfinals later Wednesday are Andy Murray vs. Kei Nishikori, and Stan Wawrinka vs. Marin Cilic.
Halep, who was runner-up at Roland Garros in 2014, will next face second-seeded Karolina Pliskova. Thereafter, the Austrian held serve and breezed through the set winning it 6-3.
Second seed Djokovic's progress has been troublesome in comparison, being stretched to five sets by Diego Schwartzman in round three - but the battle-hardened Serb is well-versed in the business end of slams and usually raises his game. It's only the second time Djokovic lost a final set by the score of 6-0 in his 937 career tour-level matches. Thiem took over after that, winning the third set in only 20 minutes. "Obviously, nothing was going my way and everything his way", Djokovic said. Just a pretty bad set. Thiem erased the first with a forehand volley and the other with a service victor that prompted Djokovic to roll his eyes.
Djokovic admitted that Thiem was a worthy victor. By the end of the match, he wound up with almost twice as many unforced errors, 35, as winners, 18.
"More or less, all the parts of my game are kind of going up and down".
"I have the belief that I can reach them again", added Djokovic.
"It's a fact that I'm not playing close to my best", Djokovic said.
How unlikely was this result?
Djokovic split with Boris Becker towards the end of a year ago as his number one ranking was about to disappear.
Now he is at a crossroads of sorts.
She will face 30th seed Timea Bacsinszky, who turns 28 today.
Djokovic, whose new coach Andre Agassi had already flown home, appeared lost and listless.
"It's obviously tough to get out of it and figure out the way how to move ahead".
"But I am trying to work on things".
