Following an difficult start here for Simona Halep with the Romanian admitting she has been suffering with illness of late which has been bothering a couple of players her third round match against Lesia Tsurenko was quite the cruise.
The 27th seed who began with a 6-2 6-2 win over Bouchard before winning a marathon 11-9 in the third against Krunic found herself up against the defending champion.
Simona Halep wasted no time at all on her way to victory.
55 minutes is all it took for the former world number one to secure he place in the fourth round and her tenth win in a row in the French capital.
Halep just didn’t let Tsurenko breath and forced a pretty messy performance from the Ukraine number two which the stats show;
14/50 points on serve won
1/19 points won on second serve
32 unforced errors
Simona was just too strong from the baseline, she was locked in and continued to dig at the baseline forcing Tsurenko into errors as she routinely found her way into the next round.
Tsurenko did start to hit away and create some good pressure on the Halep serve breaking back the Romanian when she was serving for the match and a bagel but got it done 6-2 6-1.
