Top seed Rafael Nadal was denied a place in the Australian Open semi-finals as Austria’s Dominic Thiem rattled the Spaniard with a powerful display to win a four-set thriller.

The 26-year-old, who was previously beaten by Nadal in the past two French Open finals, missed two match points before taking a third to win in four hours and 10 minutes.
