Caroline Wozniacki is on a roll at the French Open, but fourth seed Elina Svitolina is out.

After dropping only one game during her win over Georgina Garcia Perez in the second round, Wozniacki lost only three games against Pauline Parmentier in the third round.

The Australian Open champion required one hour and 17 minutes to beat the Frenchwoman 6-0, 6-3 and set up a clash with 14th seed Daria Kasatkina, who beat Maria Sakkari 6-1, 1-6, 6-3.

Wozniacki was on course for a double bagel win before Parmentier held serve for the first time in the match to make it 1-5, and she then broke the Dane and held her serve again to make it 3-5, but the second seed eventually served things out.

Svitolina, who came into the tournament on the back of the successful defence of her Italian Open title, was beaten 6-3, 7-5 by the 31st Mihaela Buzarnescu from Romania.

The 13th seed Madison Keys is up next for Buzarnescu after the American beat the 21st seed Naomi Osaka 6-1, 7-6, (9-7)

Barbora Strycova secured her place in the last 16 with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Katerina Siniakova while Yulia Putintseva beat Wang Qiang 1-6, 7-5, 6-4.
