Fourth seeds Hsieh Su-wei and Flavia Pennetta cruised into the third round of the women’s doubles at the French Open on Saturday.
The Taiwanese-Italian duo, whose fledgling partnership has yet to produce any notable results, but who seem to be playing themselves into some form at the season’s second Grand Slam, defeated Madison Brengle of the US and Tatjana Maria of Germany 6-1, 6-3 on Court 17 at Roland Garros.
Hsieh and Pennetta saved one of the two break-point chances they faced and converted eight of 11, winning 62 of the 98 points contested to advance to a third-round clash with Janette Husarova of Slovakia and Paula Kania of Poland, who comfortably ousted Czech sisters Karolina and Kristyna Pliskova 6-2, 6-1.
