Thiem, the No. 7 seed, reached his first Grand Slam final by ending the surprising run of 72nd-ranked Marco Cecchinato of Italy with a powerful 7-5, 7-6 (10), 6-1 victory Friday. But I know how to play against him. Del Potro, who generally stands deep, won just 29 percent of points on his opponent's first serve this season, tied for 51st on tour. But I get closer to them, just asking who was it? If he wins the game, OK.
- One of only three players to have beaten Nadal three or more times on clay - the others are Djokovic and Gaston Gaudio.
This was the No. 5-seeded del Potro's first semifinal match at Roland Garros since 2009.
'It's been a lot of years of playing and doing the same things every year.
"I think he would still be out there waiting for the result had he won that first set, wondering what would happen". I think this is too good of an opportunity for Thiem to pass up.
Nadal and Thiem have met nine times - all of them on clay.
Nadal is now 110-2 in best-of-five-set matches on the surface, 85-2 in Paris.
Thiem has certainly been the second-best player on clay over the last two seasons.
One of those victories came against Thiem in last year's semi-final and was, if anything, more comprehensive than this one. We expect a better Thiem for sure than the one we met past year.
The second set proved particularly tough before the dominance of the seventh seed eventually told against a player who had stunned Serbia's Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals.

Cecchinato, who was banned for match-fixing in 2016, had never won a match in the French Open prior to this year's edition. Both played superbly - and both had chances to end it. Thiem went ahead 6-3, but wasted three set points there, including a bad volley into the net at 6-4 that left him chewing ruefully on his left index finger.
"We have the burden of debt, so we will not be able to continue increasing prize money at the rhythm of previous years", said FFT chief Bernard Giudicelli.
Bresnik has taken plenty of flak through the years for pushing Thiem to play such a dense tournament schedule, but the coach has long insisted that it is part of a master plan to build a resilient champion.
At long last, Thiem converted his fifth set point when Cecchinato sent a forehand long. Then Thiem got to 10-all with a drop shot of his own.
"That was definitely the key to the match", Cecchinato said.
"After that, my level dropped".
Otherwise, he stayed steady in a 7-6 (5), 5-7, 6-3, 7-5 win over No. 3 Marin Cilic in a matchup between two past U.S. Open champions.
