Justine advances to round four of French Open

On her 25th birthday, top seeded Justine Henin beat Italy’s Mara Santangelo 6-2 6-3 to advance to the fourth round of Roland Garros. The Belgian got one step closer to defending her title by winning the match on her favorite court – Philippe Chatrier. She calls it "my garden."

Justine’s next opponent is Sybille Bammer of Austria, who defeated China's Na Li 6-4 6-3 in the third round.

Henin and Bammer have met only once. They played on clay, in 2006, at the Family Circle Cup second round. Henin defeated Bammer 6-2 6-3.
