Djokovic blasts worst ever conditions after Paris exit

Djokovic blasts worst ever conditions after Paris exit

He beat Roger Federer on Friday in the other semifinal match, which was played before the start of Djokovic and Thiem's. Novak Djokovic's "Bad Behaviour" During French Open 2019 Semi-Final Defeat Against Dominic Thiem Comes Under Criticism by Fans, Read Tweets.

Djokovic got straight into his groove, broke back in the third game of the day and was denied another break at 4-4 when Thiem failed to put away two smashes then got an outrageous net cord off an audacious half-volley.

Djokovic levelled at 5-5 with considerable help from Thiem but for the third time in the set he came unstuck serving into the wind, seeing his winning grand slam run ended at 26 matches.

Two tight forehands thumped into the net to give Thiem a third match point and this time the Austrian hammered home a forehand to spark celebrations in his coaching box.

"Of course it's a big dream for me to win that match tomorrow, to win this title".

However, it's 25-year-old Austrian fourth seed Thiem who goes on to face Nadal where he will be buoyed by having defeated the 17-time major victor four times on clay in his career.

"It was an fantastic match".

More than an hour after the women's final should have started on another stormy day on Court Philippe Chatrier, fourth seed Thiem thumped a forehand victor past Djokovic to seal victory after squandering two earlier match points.

Thiem's coach Nicolas Massu said he would prefer the final to be shifted to Monday but the Austrian insisted he was happy to play Sunday.




"He will be the favourite but I hope to just leave it all out on the court again and we will see".

Djokovic did not want to elaborate on how the discussions had gone, but said: "Obviously when you're playing in hurricane kind of conditions, it's hard to perform your best".

"I think it's really important that I go into the match with the belief to win", he said.

Thiem was ahead in fourth set too, but Djokovic came from behind and claimed the fourth set to push the match in fifth round.

Djokovic erupted furiously at the umpire and was given a warning for unsportsmanlike conduct.

The top-seeded Fernandez beat eighth-seeded Emma Navarro of the USA 6-3, 6-2.

"It's just unfortunate. These kind of matches, one or two points decide a victor".

Although just one of Djokovic's 15 Grand Slam wins was at Roland Garros in Paris (2016), he entered the clay-court tournament having won the last three Grand Slams: The Australian Open in January, the U.S. Open in September and Wimbledon last summer. The World No 1 Novak Djokovic was outplayed and overpowered by Thiem in the first set on Friday, as Thiem forced Djokovic to drop his first set in the French Open.
