World number one Nadal was pushed all the way in the last 16 by another fierce rival, Nick Kyrgios, but battled through 6-3 3-6 7-6 (8-6) 7-6 (7-4). The second set was the first that the Spaniard had lost at this year’s tournament.

The 26 year-old Thiem is in his first quarter-final at the Australian Open, after an impressive 6-2 6-4 6-4 straight sets victory over the No. 10 seed Gael Monfils. The Austrian dominated throughout, winning without having to face a single break point and breaking serve himself four times from 14 chances.

Betting Odds - Winner

The 33 year-old Nadal has a 9-4 advantage over Thiem on the head-to-head, although it should be noted that all but one of those matches was played on clay. The exception came in the US Open 2018, when Nadal eventually shaded an epic encounter in five sets – 0-6 6-4 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 7-6 (7-5).
