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

Picture

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.
