  • Novak Djokovic

The Spaniard is the odds-on favourite to triumph at Roland Garros, but says people should not get ahead of themselves, pointing out that Thiem won their most recent meeting in Rome - Nadal's only defeat on clay in 2017.

Nadal warned of the threat presented by Dominic Thiem's "huge potential" ahead of their clash for a place in Sunday's French Open final. No. 8 Kei Nishikori, and 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka vs.

Nadal beat the Austrian to lift the trophy in both Madrid and Barcelona, but Thiem exacted a measure of revenge with a 6-4, 6-3 win over the 31-year-old at the Rome Masters.

"It happens to almost all players, at some point in your career you're going to go a little bit flat, you're fighting with yourself, you're not making the right choices, you have to think about everything, you're not feeling anything and I think he was trying to do too much with his backhands, he missed a lot of backhands". Djokovic had won all five previous matches - and 11 of 12 sets - against Thiem, including in the French Open semifinals a year ago. "I was not in a position to play well the way I wanted to", recounted Nadal.

"He's obviously played extremely well the last few years at the French, and he's confident". I need to do the same again tomorrow. "He doesn't give you a lot of options".

Nadal - bidding to become the first player in the Open Era to win the same major 10 times - and Carreno Busta hugged before the 14-time grand slam victor applauded his crestfallen friend off court.

When she spoke to him after the show, he told her he may have taken "an extra Ativan or two" and was slurring his words. He was found dead at the MGM Grand hotel in Detroit hours after playing a concert in the city with the band.

"It's a fact that I'm not playing close to my best, and I know that". "It can be only a big challenge and hopefully a good match".

"It's going to be the fourth match against him in five or six weeks", said Thiem.

"What goes wrong? The opponent played very well", Nadal said. "There's not really big secrets. We spoke with a person and I hope that the situation will be clearer at Wimbledon or just after". He's again in his best shape. "It probably helped me to win today". So I guess you've got to go through it, learn your lessons and figure out the way, how to get out of it stronger. We can talk about statistics for hours, but what is important is to consider the match.

"But all of the tournament I have played well and despite the weather conditions, I played well". He put me in a hard situation, so it's up to me to avoid being put in uncomfortable situations.

"He's a leader of a new generation, very powerful, and has a lot of strength and variety in his game", said Djokovic, who would win the title. And just getting to know each other, as I said, and then we will see where it takes us.' It's nearly an unbelievable situation thinking only 12 months ago he was lifting the Trophy: 'Obviously to win here previous year has brought a lot of different emotions.
