Sharapova through to Roland Garros fourth round

Maria Sharapova powered into the second week of Roland Garros, as well as the other favorites who were in action this Saturday.

The seventh-seeded Sharapova beat world No.129 Yung-Jan Chan of Chinese Taipei 6-2 6-3. It’s interesting that Sharapova won 15 straight games from her second-round match against Caroline Garcia to 4-0 in the first set against Chan. In the round of 16 Sharapova will face seed No.12 Agnieszka Radwanska, who came this far with straight-set victories over Patricia Mayr-Achleitner, Sania Mirza and Yanina Wickmayer.

The other players expected to do well at the tournament also had a successful seventh day of French Open 2011: Victoria Azarenka defeated Roberta Vinci 6-3 6-2, Li Na beat Sorana Cirstea 6-2 6-2, Andrea Petkovic progressed passed Jarmila Gajdosova 6-2 4-6 6-3, and Petra Kvitova defeated Vania King 6-4 6-2.

    I think that I will suggest to the French Tennis Federation to rename Roland Garros to "Russia and Eastern Europe Tennis Cup". 11 out of 16!!! There are 6 Russian women, 5 Eastern European, 3 Western European, 1 South American, and 1 Chinese for the second week of the draw.

    I don't know why so many tip Sharapova as a possible winner. I don't think she's done that well. The match with Garcia was a sign that she can be pretty unstable on clay. She kind of grunted her way in, :-D
