Third seed Simona Halep thrashed Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1 6-1 to reach the French Open quarter-finals.
Halep, the 2014 runner-up, is one of the favourites to win the title in Paris and swept aside her 21st-seeded opponent in exactly one hour.
It was the Romanian’s first win over Suarez Navarro on clay in six attempts.
She will play fifth seed Elina Svitolina for a place in the semi-finals after she came from 2-5 down in the final set to beat Petra Martic.
