As a result of this performance, Thiem ended the week ranked No. Thiem defeated Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals of the Rome Masters tournament in two straight sets, before falling to Novak Djokovic in the Semifinals. At the beginning of the grass court season, Thiem reached the second round of the Halle Open , losing to Robin Haase. He was ousted by eventual semi-finalist Tomas Berdych. Thiem then participated in the Washington Open, where he lost narrowly to Kevin Anderson in the third round.
At Montreal, he received a bye into the second round, but lost to Diego Schwartzman. He then reached the quarter-finals of Cincinnati, where he lost to David Ferrer in straight sets. At the US Open , Thiem made it to the fourth round. However, from there del Potro's form greatly increased and Thiem eventually lost in five sets, after failing to capitalise on two match points in the fourth set. Thiem qualified for the ATP Finals for the second year running. However, also for the second consecutive year, Thiem struggled with form following the US Open.
Despite this poor run of form, prior to the ATP Finals Thiem broke into the top five in the rankings for the first time in his career, rising to World No. He did not advance to the semi-finals. Thiem began his season at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open as the top seed. He won his third-round match over Adrian Mannarino , but lost in the fourth against Tennys Sandgren. This was equal to his result of the previous year at the Australian Open.
This was his first title in nearly a year. In Indian Wells, he won his second round match against Stefanos Tsitsipas. In his third-round match against Pablo Cuevas , he rolled his ankle at the end of the first set that he won 6—3. He then lost the second 4—6 and retired at the score of 2—4 in the third. He skipped Miami because of the hairline-fracture-ankle injury. Going into the clay season, Thiem played his first tournament in Monte Carlo , defeating Andrey Rublev and Novak Djokovic , before losing to Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals.
In Barcelona , he again advanced to the quarterfinals, before falling in straight sets to Stefanos Tsitsipas , who then lost to Nadal in the final. Thiem's next tournament was in Madrid , where he would again face Nadal in the quarterfinals. This time, he came through to win, ending Nadal's match and record set winning streak on clay.
Thiem also being the last man to take a set and win against Nadal on clay the previous year in Rome. Thiem then defeated Kevin Anderson in straight sets to reach his second consecutive final in the Spanish capital, where he lost to Alexander Zverev in straight sets.
Thiem was the sixth seed at Rome , but lost his first match to Fabio Fognini in three sets. He faced Kei Nishikori in the fourth round, winning the first two sets 6—2, 6—0, before a late resurgence saw Nishikori take the third set.
However, Thiem was able to take the fourth set 6—4 to win the match. In the quarterfinals, he faced second seed Alexander Zverev in Zverev's first major quarterfinal, defeating him 6—4, 6—2, 6—1.
In his third consecutive French Open semi-final, Thiem defeated unseeded Marco Cecchinato in straight sets to advance to his first Grand Slam final. He then lost in straight sets in the final to Rafael Nadal , who won his 11th French Open crown. His poor grass court season continued with a first round retirement against Marcos Baghdatis at Wimbledon. Thiem lost to Stefanos Tsitsipas in his first match at the Rogers Cup , and was forced to withdraw from Cincinnati due to illness. There, he faced finalist and fifth seed Kevin Anderson , defeating him in straight sets to reach his first Grand Slam quarterfinal on hard court, where he faced defending champion and top seed Rafael Nadal.
This was their first ever meeting on a surface other than clay. In a shocking start to the match, Thiem won the first set , yielding only 7 points to Nadal. This was the first set Thiem had ever won against Nadal at a Grand Slam. Nadal took control and won the second and third sets, despite Thiem serving for the set at in the third.
In the fourth set, Thiem was again up a break early, but lost his lead and won the set in a tiebreaker. In the fifth set, after finding himself at on serve at , Thiem won five consecutive points to prevent Nadal from serving for the match. Nadal narrowly won the fifth set tiebreaker to bring the match to an end at 2: Thiem is primarily an aggressive baseline player, who is adept at defending, as well. His groundstrokes are solid on both wings, with a heavy forehand and a tenacious, powerful single-handed backhand. He is notably one of the few younger ATP players to use a single-handed backhand.
According to Thiem, he changed to his now-famous single-handed backhand at the advice of his coach. Thiem often uses heavy, penetrating groundstrokes to construct points and hit winners or outlast his opponents. He has a long take-back on both wings, and the top-spin he produces on his groundstrokes allows him to both attack and defend well.
Thiem has solid volleys, though they are not a major weapon in his game. He often only comes up to the net to finish off points with a single volley, though he has been known to occasionally serve-and-volley, as well, especially when playing on clay and serving from the ad side to his opponent's backhand. Thiem often employs a top-spin serve for both his first and second serves, resulting in a relatively slow, but looping, serve that forces his opponents back.
Compared to the younger players on the ATP tour, Thiem uses prolonged baseline play and careful construction of points to win. His playing style, particularly the long take-back on his groundstrokes, ability to sustain long baseline rallies and top-spin serves have greatly benefited his clay game, where he has had the most success winning eight of his ten ATP titles on that surface.
His mental game has also been praised, especially his tie-break win percentage.
