Stan Wawrinka knocked out Dominic Thiem from the 2015 Rome Masters Open quarter-finals rather quickly 7-6(3), 6-4 on Thursday, and now he gets to go up against Rafael Nadal who he’s lost eleven matches to. Granted, Wawrinka won their last battle, and can use that as he enters the quarter-finals with the Spanish tennis star.

Stan Wawrinka set a Rome quarter-final clash with Rafael Nadal after dismissing Dominic Thiem 7-6(3), 6-4 on Thursday at theInternazionali BNL d’Italia.

The Swiss will look to overturn a 1-12 FedEx ATP Head2Head record against Nadal, but he did beat the Spaniard in their last meeting, capturing his first Grand Slam championship with victory in the 2014 Australian Openfinal.

The eighth-seeded Wawrinka took his chances in a tight match with Thiem, breaking once in the second set to claim victory in one hour and 38 minutes. The Swiss notched his 20th win of the season as he recorded back-to-back victories for the first time since lifting the Rotterdam trophy (d. Berdych) in February.

The 30-year-old Wawrinka is searching for a return to top form at the Foro Italico, where he reached his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 final in 2008 (l. to Djokovic) and subsequently broke into the Top 10 of the Emirates ATP Rankings.

Seventh seed David Ferrer won an all-Spanish contest with Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-1, 6-3 in 86 minutes, converting five of his 11 break points. The right-hander goes on to face David Goffin, who was granted a place in the quarter-finals when Andy Murray withdrew.

The 33-year-old Ferrer has reached at least the quarter-finals in eight of his 10 events this season, lifting the trophies in Doha (d. Berdych), Rio de Janeiro (d. Fognini) and Acapulco (d. Nishikori). He is looking to reach the Rome final for the second time, after finishing runner-up in 2010 (l. to Nadal).
