Her secret to beating Serena Williams two years ago at the U.S. Open was that Karolina Pliskova felt free, which is perhaps the best and most improbable mind-set there is when you're plunked in the middle of 24,000-seat Arthur Ashe Stadium with a then-22-time Grand Slam champion staring back across the net.
More trophies and children are hopefully in Serena Williams future, saidtennis's most famous working mother on Sunday, adding that she appreciated how hard it is to raise both.
Thiem prevented a rematch of last year's U.S. Open final by eliminating 2017 runner-up and No. 5 seed Kevin Anderson 7-5, 6-2, 7-6 (2).
"I want [Olympia] to sleep in the bed with me every night", Williams said.
In the decider, Williams took an early 2-0 lead and held on to reach the quarters.
Serena Williams' yells of "Come on!" crescendoed right along with the tension in a fourth-round U.S. Open match that began as a rout and suddenly became riveting.

"I feel like it's important for women to know that it doesn't happen like that in the Instagram world".
"I really was feeling great that year".
She added: "They really use their platform in ways that are really unfathomable".
With Halep, number two seed Caroline Wozniacki and Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber having already fallen, few major obstacles stand between Williams and a seventh title in NY.
He next will face the victor of Sunday night's match between third-seeded Juan Martin del Potro - the 2009 Open champ - and 20th-seeded Borna Coric. She also said there is more to life than tennis, according to reports.
It certainly was. And that chase-down, turn-around, hook-shot of a passing victor showed a glimpse of how the No. 3 Stephens can go from defense to offense with flair, as she did repeatedly during her 6-3, 6-3 victory over No. 15 Elise Mertens of Belgium in the fourth round. She was hitting such big returns so I wanted to hit bigger second serves.
"She was No.1 past year", Williams said, "I think she got there for a reason".
But Bournemouth sought to nullify Chelsea with a back five, crowding the central areas and funnelling possession to the flanks. Beyond the big six - and perhaps Marco Silva's new-look Everton - there appears to be parity.
She also tagged in Missy Elliot - paying tribute to the lyric, "Don't I look like a Halle Berry poster?" from her song Work It . When Berry spotted herself on the walls of Prince Harry's teenage dorm room, she couldn't help but let him know.
