Top seed Simona Halep took revenge for a 2019 French Open loss with a 6-0, 6-1 hammering of Amanda Anisimova on Friday.

The defending champion Romanian who was beaten by the American here in the quarter-finals last year, filed that memory away with her win to reach the fourth round.

Halep improved her career-best win streak to 17 straight matches, a run which includes titles in Dubai, Prague and Rome.

2019 Roland Garros semi-finalist Anisimova came to the third-round encounter having lost just four games in her two opening matches.

Halep grabbed the opening set to love in 234 minutes before her 29th-ranked opponent was able to get a game on the scoreboard.
