Passport to RG, Day 6—Thiem pulls away from Ruud; Halep-Anisimova next

With Stan Wawrinka looming as a round-of-16 opponent if the Swiss advances later on the day, Thiem should be thrilled to have a full tank of gas at his disposal come Sunday.

You could say Iga Swiatek secured the bag in defeating Eugenie Bouchard , 6-3, 6-2, and she's back in the fourth round for a second year in a row.

A solid argument from Casper Ruud, who comes out on the losing end of a ball mark selected by the chair umpire after the Norwegian stopped his point against Dominic Thiem.

Swiatek advanced to the round of 16 here last year, losing to Simona Halep , and potentially could face the Romanian again in that stage depending how today shakes out.

Second seed Rafael Nadal continues his quest for his 13th event crown to wrap up the day on Chatrier versus Stefano Travaglia in a first-time meeting.

Meanwhile, Iga Swiatek and Eugenie Bouchard both look to extend their runs in the first match on Court Simonne-Mathieu, plus Americans Taylor Fritz and Sebastian Korda each take on unseeded foes.
