Thiem times march through Paris to perfection

PARIS (Reuters) - As if by stealth, Dominic Thiem moved into the quarter-finals of the French Open on Sunday with another quietly devastating performance.

The Austrian sixth seed swept aside Horacio Zeballos 6-1 6-3 6-1 to book a last-eight clash with either Novak Djokovic or Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

On form, Thiem is positioning himself as the main threat to Rafa Nadal winning a 10th crown here. The pair could meet in the semis.
