Paris - Austria's Dominic Thiem advanced to his maiden Grand Slam quarter-final on Wednesday with a 6-2, 6-7 (2/7), 6-1, 6-4 win over Spain's Marcel Granollers at the French Open.

Rain halted play at one set apiece on Tuesday, but 13th seed Thiem quickly found his groove on Wednesday to race through the third set before nailing down a place in the last eight.

The 22-year-old will next meet Belgian 12th seed David Goffin or Latvia's Ernests Gulbis.
