Vondrousova maintained her momentum in the second set, breaking Danilovic in the opening game and quickly establishing a 2-0 lead after saving three break points. The Czech’s dominance continued as she never faltered, breaking Danilovic once more to secure a commanding victory.

Meanwhile on Court Philippe Chatrier, top seed Iga Swiatek continued her quest for the third straight Roland Garros title with a superb 6-0 6-0 victory over Anastasia Potapova.
