WTA Tour

Former champion Garbine Muguruza swept aside wildcard Fiona Ferro 6-4 6-3 to progress into the French Open third round.

The 2016 winner, and fifth seed for this year’s tournament, will not face either Sam Stosur next, who beat doubles partner Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

“The French Open is ‘that’ tournament for me, it’s special,” said Muguruza. “I’m so motivated and I’m so happy.”

She’ll be joined in round three by Elise Mertens, who dominated British number two Heather Watson 6-3 6-4.

19th seed Magdalena Rybarikova, meanwhile, overcame Belinda Bencic 6-2 6-4.
