US Open: Second seed Thiem demolishes de Minaur to set up semi-final against Medvedev

Second seed Dominic Thiem bulldozed Australia’s Alex de Minaur in straight sets Wednesday to reach the US Open semi-finals.

The Austrian defeated the 21st seed 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 in just 2 hours 4 minutes inside Arthur Ashe Stadium and he will play third-seeded Russian Daniil Medvedev in the last four for a place in Sunday’s final.

“I had a great feeling from the first moment on,” said Thiem, gunning for his first Grand Slam title at Flushing Meadows.

“My feeling was that first set, especially until I broke him for the second time, was really intense, very long rallies.

“The first and second set second I guess it looks way easier on the scoresheet than it was actually,” he added.

The 27-year-old Thiem hit 11 aces compared to just one by the 21-year-old de Minaur.

Thiem won a whopping 83 percent of first serve points, while de Minaur, playing in his first Grand Slam quarter-final, could only manage 49 percent.

Thiem was able to withstand most of what de Minaur threw at him, getting 81 percent of returns in.

The powerful Austrian also smashed 44 winners while De Minaur mustered only 17.
