Top seed Simona Halep extracted brutal revenge on American teenager Amanda Anisimova with a 6-Zero 6-1 victory to maneuver ominously into the fourth round of the French Open on Friday.

Anisimova prompted an enormous upset last yr when she comfortably beat Romanian Halep, then the defending champion, within the quarter-finals, however couldn’t reproduce that type.

Halep was in usually miserly temper on Court Philippe Chatrier, giving valuable little away and ready for the 19-year-old Anisimova to make errors.

She pocketed the opening set in 23 minutes and though 25th seed Anisimova, who had dropped just 4 games in her first two matches, briefly threatened a revival at first of the second set Halep raced away to victory.

Halep will face one other rising star within the subsequent round when she performs Poland’s Iga Swiatek in a repeat of their fourth-round conflict last yr through which Halep dropped just one game.
