Reiterating his healthy routine, Djokovic, who is now in Paris for the prestigious French Open, said that he hasn't dined on meat since 2015. The Austrian then pushed forward, taking the next two sets 6-3, 6-0 and forcing Djokovic to confront a lost set and match for the first time in the tournament.
The 23-year-old Thiem next faces nine-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal, who advanced when No. 20 Pablo Carreno Busta stopped while trailing 6-2, 2-0 after injuring an abdominal muscle late in the first set.
When quizzed if he could put his feet up for a while, the former world No.1 said: "Trust me, I'm thinking about many things, especially in the last couple months. Novak looked out of balance, uncomfortable, conditions were tough but usually that should favour the better player, the more experienced player". "I tried. I lost that crucial break in the beginning of the second (set), and he started serving better, backing it up with the first shot".
"It's a big challenge but I am up for it", said Djokovic. So I guess you've got to go through it, learn your lessons and figure out the way. Thiem erased the first with a forehand volley and the other with a service victor that prompted Djokovic to roll his eyes. I've played three times with Dominic [this year]. Nadal said afterwards. "Sorry for him".
