Paris, France (SportsNetwork.com) - Fourth seed Simona Halep and former world No. 1 Jelena Jankovic reached the fourth round, while one former champion moved on and another, Ana Ivanovic, exited the draw Saturday at the French Open.
The Romanian Halep, the highest-remaining seed among the women following an upset-filled first week, moved into the round of 16 with a 6-3, 6-0 victory over Spain's Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor.
Halep committed only 11 unforced errors and saved all eight break points she faced in the 64-minute match against Torro-Flor.
The 2008 girls' champion in Paris, Halep will next face 15th-seeded American Sloane Stephens, a 6-3, 6-4 winner over 22nd-seeded Russian Ekaterina Makarova on Day 7.
Stephens has reached the second week at a major for the sixth straight time.
"If I knew what the switch was or what I was supposed to do, I would probably do it every week," Stephens said. "I guess fortunately it's at the Slams I play well. Not too disappointed with that."
Meanwhile, Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova rallied to beat fifth-seeded Czech star Petra Kvitova 6-7 (3-7), 6-1, 9-7. Kvitova had a 49-26 advantage in winners, but piled up 65 unforced errors, compared to 20 for the 27th seed.
Kuznetsova is a former French and U.S. Open champ, with the victory here coming in 2009. She was a Roland Garros runner-up in 2006.
A sixth-seeded Jankovic rolled along with a 6-1, 6-2 pasting of 26th-seeded Romanian Sorana Cirstea, while 10th-seeded 2012 Roland Garros runner-up Sara Errani of Italy whipped Israeli Julia Glushko 6-0, 6-1.
Czech Lucie Safarova, seeded 23rd at this fortnight, prevented a fourth-round matchup between former French Open champions Kuznetsova and Ivanovic by defeating the 11th-seeded Ivanovic, 6-3, 6-3.
Ivanovic titled here in 2008 after finishing as the runner-up in 2007.
