Dominic Thiem ended Kei Nishikori's comeback to reach the quarter-finals of the French Open with a 6-2 6-0 5-7 6-4 victory on Sunday and set up a mouthwatering clash with second seed Alexander Zverev.It got even worse for Nishikori in the second set as Thiem toyed with him, notably with a stunning drop-shot service return, and the Japanese could manage only nine points in the set.Nishikori seized his first break opportunity at 6-5 to take the set when Thiem's forehand flew long.The Austrian, who ended 10-times French Open champion Nadal's streak of 50 consecutive sets won on clay in Madrid, broke decisively for 4-3 in the fourth set with a trademark forehand winner.He then held serve throughout to wrap it up on his second match point when Nishikori sent a forehand long under the eyes of Nadal.
