Both Belgian former top-ranked players Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters defeated their third-round opponents at the 2010 Sony Ericsson Open in Miami and progressed to the fourth round of the Premier-level tournament.

Seven time Grand Slam champion Henin, who entered the event as a wildcard, continued her solid display with a 6-4 6-4 victory over seed No.26 Dominika Cibulkova. Earlier in the day, two-time US Open champion Clijsters, who had beaten Petra Kvitova 6-1 6-1 in the second round, lost just one game against 17th seed Shahar Peer to win her third-round match 6-0 6-1.

Clijsters won the Sony Ericsson Open in 2005, while Henin held a double match point in the 2007 final against Serena Williams, but failed to make that last step and lost the thrilling match. (photos: Esther Lim)
