Top-seeded David Goffin led a parade of seeds into the quarterfinals at the Swiss Open Gstaad on Thursday. All eight seeded players have advanced to the quarterfinals as Goffin, third-seeded Dominic Thiem, sixth-seeded Joao Sousa and seventh-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta advanced on the red clay in one of the most scenic settings that the ATP has to offer.

Thiem kept his winning ways alive with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Federico Delbonis of Argentina to set up a quarterfinal with Spain’s Carreno Busta. The Spaniard opened the day in Gstaad by taking out Robin Haase, 7-6(3), 6-4.

Thiem, who owns two titles in 2015, improved to 24-18 on the season with the win (15-7 on clay). The Austrian put forth another fine serving performance, dropping only three points on serve in the first set and facing only two break points all afternoon.

Sousa, a finalist at Umag last week, saved three match points to defeat Denis Istomin, 6-7(6), 6-3, 7-6(4), and set up a quarterfinal with Goffin, who pummeled Horacio Zeballos 6-1, 6-1 in 45 minutes in the last match of the day.

Goffin, who fell in the first round at Umag to Benoit Paire, is at a career-high ranking of 14, but has not won a tournament this year.
