Wow! We all knew that Dominic Theim is one to watch out for in the future, but no one could have expected this! Thiem beat defending champion, Novak Djokovcic 7-6, 6-3, 6-0 in straight sets as he romped his way into the semi-finals of the French Open.
This was a monumental upset, as the world number two Djokovic had shown signs of recapturing his best form over the last couple of matches. But Thiem had none of it, as he swatted away the defending champion with consummate ease.
This takes Djokovic right back to the drawing board, while Thiem moves on to face the legendary Rafael Nadal in the semi finals.
Here are the best reactions as Twitter goes berserk as Thiem THRASHES Djokovic in the French Open.
Djokovic just doesn't get how he can go from playing great to play that kind of match today. Seems pretty touched by this loss.

That’s the big win on the big stage Dominic Thiem’s resume was lacking. First top 10 win at a major, against Novak Djokovic no less #RG17
