Easy passages for Stosur and Wozniacki into the 3rd. round.


Sam Stosur became the first player to reach round three of this year’s French Open on Wednesday. The 2010 runner-up eased past Simona Halep 6-0 6-2 at Roland Garros to move into the last 32. Stosur’s attacking game was again in evidence as she used her famous kick-serve to good effect, often coming to the net to nail down points. The Australian was only ever tested for a brief spell in the second set as she moved through to a meeting with claycourt specialist Gisela Dulko, who beat 32nd seed Tsvetana Pironkova 6-4 6-2.

Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki advanced to the third round of the French Open, needing almost two hours to defeat Aleksandra Wozniak of Canada 6-2, 7-6 (6) on Wednesday. Wozniacki saved three consecutive set points in the tiebreaker but finally prevailed when her opponent sent a forehand volley into the net on her first match point. Wozniacki again played with a bandage on her left thigh and never looked comfortable on court, making 24 unforced errors. The Dane had her left leg treated during her victory in the final of a clay-court tournament in Brussels last weekend.
