Thiem's only chance is to hope the weather is as favourable to him as it was to Schwartzmann before the rain delay, forecasts (not a fan of forecasts) predict light rain past 3pm and thereafter. Match starts at 2pm. If it is damp conditions it could well be 5 sets as Nadal is not going to have the same field day he normally has on clay with one handed backhand players like Wawa and Federer if the ball doesn't bounce high enough to damage Thiem's bh. If it stays dry, Thiem's OHBH to the forehand will be as effective as a woodpecker with lips for the majority of points. There was a 10 inch height difference between the balls bouncing pre damp and post damp conditions in Nadal's delayed Quarter Final v Diego on this court,

I say only chance, attention is drawn to the fact he's beaten Nadal on clay this year and last, problem being with his ultra physical, sledghammer approach you can only last so long before tiring out which is the difference between bo3 (Rome 17 / Madrid 18) and b05 (here), you can beat him in a race on the dust, you're highly unlikely to beat him in a marathon,  Nadal in straights for if it remains dry, 4 otherwise, kind regards.

Nadal might as well pull out of Wimbledon, he can no longer reach 2nd week of Wimbledon these days because of his knees doesn't allow him to get in back with any interest with the faster and lower bounce does it.
