World No.2 Djokovic was completely outplayed by Thiem 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 6-0 on Wednesday, suffering a brutal loss and his first 'bagel' at a major since 2005.

Nadal, who barely broke a sweat as he moved into the semi-finals courtesy of Pablo Carreno Busta's second-set injury retirement, is currently No.4 in the world but will rocket upwards thanks to Djokovic's early exit.
