Nadal, who headed into the tournament on the back of 11th Barcelona Open title and 11th Madrid Open title, is bidding to make it to the semifinals of the Madrid Masters for the sixth straight year.

Nadal and Thiem had previously met each other eight times, with the Spanish star clinching six of those games.
However, the Austrian was the only player to beat Nadal on clay in 2017 besides also being the last person to pick up a set against the top-ranked.
