Thiem tames Monfils to advance into last eight in Paris

Dominic Thiem made light work of Gael Monfils as he ended French presence in the singles draw with a no-nonsense 6-4 6-4 6-2 victory to reach the French Open quarter-finals on Monday.

The Austrian fourth seed, widely regarded as the man standing between a final showdown between world number one Novak Djokovic and 11-times champion Rafael Nadal, wiped 14th seed Monfils off Court Philippe Chatrier in expeditious fashion.

He will next face either Russian Karen Khachanov or Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro for a place in the last four, where he could meet Serbian Djokovic.

Dominic Thiem reached the semifinals at Indian Wells Masters without hitting a ball as injured Gael Monfils withdrew.

Monfils pulled out shortly before his scheduled quarter-final against Thiem with left Achilles tendon trouble.

Gael Monfils speaks to the media after his 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 victory against Sam Querrey

Q. You timed this press conference perfectly, at the halftime. How annoying was it to be scheduled at the same time as the match (referring to the World Cup)?
GAEL MONFILS: I knew it. At the end you have to think about you first. My first question when I go out to the court is, What was the score? It was 0-0. I tried to rush.

I was lucky enough to see Raphael Varane score. Perfect so far.

Q. Can you describe what your injuries were during the match and how you overcame them.
GAEL MONFILS: I think I went to the opposite direction. It was not the stretch who hurt me. I felt on it. I felt my groin was super tight. It's hard to describe. It was, like, something was tight, and I couldn't release it myself.

Gael Monfils speaks to the media after his 3-6, 6-3, 7-6(5), 7-6(3) win against Paolo Lorenzi
Q. How did you feel about how you played today and your first matches?
GA√čL MONFILS: Yeah, today was, it was a little bit tough, I think, because Paolo is never easy to play against him, because he has a quite aggressive game, I think.

He actually surprised me today. You know, his backhand is definitely his best shot, but today his forehand was not bad at all. I think I get caught first set. I was not moving so fast, so I get caught a little bit with my legs, and then I had to speed up my movement and speed up also my serve, because he was returning good.
