Austrian Dominic Thiem remains on course for his third clay court title of the season after victory over Australia's John Millman put him into the quarter-finals of the German Tennis Championships.

The top seed lost just three of his first-service points and cruised to a 6-2 6-2 victory in just over an hour in Hamburg to set up a meeting with Chile's Nicolas Jarry.

Third seed Pablo Carreno Busta is also into the last eight as opponent Aljaz Bedene retired with a hip injury with the score at 6-2 4-0.

Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili awaits in the next round after he saved five set points and recovered from 6-1 down in the first set tiebreak to beat 2013 finalist Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay 7-6 6-4.
