Dominic Thiem advanced to the second round of the Halle Open with a routine victory over Maximilian Marterer, while Richard Gasquet beat Gael Monfils in a battle of two French talents.

World number eight Thiem defeated the German qualifier 7-5 6-3, breaking in the final game of the first set to steer clear of a potentially troublesome tie-break.

The Austrian had to dig in to defend three break points early in the second before pouncing in game four, fighting from 15-40 down to serve out the match and set up a meeting with either Robin Haase or David Ferrer.
