Tennis: Qualifier Thiem stuns Wawrinka in Madrid

Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka suffered a shock defeat to Austrian qualifier Dominic Thiem at the Madrid Masters on Tuesday as the 20-year-old progressed to the third round 1-6, 6-2, 6-4.

A finalist in Madrid last year, Wawrinka seemed on course for a routine win after romping through the first set, but Thiem levelled with some excellent tennis in the second before sealing the biggest win of his career with the only break of serve in the third set.

Wawrinka's defeat means Rafael Nadal is the only top four seed left in the draw before he even starts his campaign on Wednesday as Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer withdrew due to injury and family reasons respectively.
