STAT OF THE DAY: Novak Djokovic's 7-6 (7) 6-3 6-0 defeat to Dominic Thiem was his first straight sets grand slam loss in four years.

Thiem and Djokovic battled each other in last year's French Open semifinal, but this year, just Thiem will have the opportunity to take the court at the next stage of the tournament.

Wawrinka made it eight straight wins over Cilic with a 6-3 6-3 6-1 demolition of that saw him rip through the match in under two hours - Wawrinka, like Nadal and Thiem has not dropped a set this tournament.

Defending champion Djokovic collapsed to a meek 7-6 (7/5), 6-3, 6-0 loss to Thiem in what was his earliest exit at Roland Garros in 7 years.

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.

RAFAEL Nadal's relentless push for a 10th French Open crown continues at lightning speed after the Spaniard reached a record 10th Roland Garros semi-final as Pablo Carreno Busta succumbed to injury.

The fourth-seeded Nadal, a nine-time champion at Roland Garros, was leading 6-2, 2-0 when Carreno Busta stopped. "Just pretty bad set". Then in the second set, in the beginning, I was down love-30.

"Trust me, I'm thinking about many things, especially in the last couple months", he said.

The third-seeded Swiss player fell and rolled into the net as he set up match point but he dusted himself down to win the match with an ace.

"I don't know how many games I lost this year, but I really don't care about this. It is a big challenge and I'm up for it".

That was certainly true after the first set as Djokovic, whose new coach Andre Agassi had already flown home, appeared lost and listless, misfiring a succession of lame backhands.

"First of all, it's great for me to be in the semi-finals again." said the 23-year-old.

"It's obviously tough to get out of it and figure out the way how to move ahead".

After the defeat, Djokovic was accused of "tanking" by several analysts and commentators covering the 2017 French Open.

The third seeded Romanian will face Czech Karolina Pliskova in the last four.

"I have never had any issues with him before", Murray said.

Wawrinka's lone worrying moment resulted when he nearly turned an ankle near the net in the last game against Cilic.
