That's the most important aspect to me, is getting to the next round, getting to the quarter-finals of this tournament. He reached the French Open quarter-finals previous year and made the semis in Barcelona earlier this month.

Mladenovic, the world number 22, was runner-up in Madrid past year but she had no answer to the firepower of Sharapova who is set to at least return to the top-40 next week.

"On this surface, (Thiem) is one of the most unsafe players you can face", Nadal said.

Maria Sharapova's run ended on Thursday.

Also on the men's side, second-seeded Alexander Zverev brushed aside Leonardo Mayer 6-4, 6-2 and will meet John Isner after he edged Pablo Cuevas in a hard-fought match that needed tiebreakers to decide all three sets. She did that but her return game was nowhere near where she would want to see it, allowing Pliskova to hold at love in game 10 for a 6-4 after 37 minutes.

Halep, the victor here in 2016 and 2017, was made to work harder in the second set on Manolo Santana but the world number one's 6-0, 6-3 victory was never in doubt.

"You can't keep giving yourself a pat on the back".

Karolina Pliskova halted Simona Halep's dominant form in the Mutua Madrid Open quarter-finals, backing up her own solid clay form.

The diminutive Romanian drew first blood in the opening set, but controlled aggression saw Pliskova come back to break Halep twice to take the set. "I think I played one of my best matches this year for sure, and for sure on clay in my life". I feel like it was a very good match, the hardest here.

She said she was still driven to improve and did not regret the split with Groeneveld.

Pliskova will next face 10th-seeded compatriot Petra Kvitova, who cruised past 14th-seeded Russian Daria Kasatkina 6-4, 6-0. After reaching the semi-finals in Stuttgart a fortnight ago, Garcia has yet to drop a set in the Spanish capital as she beat Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-3.
