Eighth seed Ashleigh Barty dropped a set for the first time at this year's French Open, though eventually progressed to the quarterfinals in Paris by overcoming the challenge of America's Sofia Kenin in a fourth round match on Court Philippe Chatrier.

The 14th-seeded Keys goes up against 42nd-ranked Katerina Siniakova, who is coming off the biggest victory of her career: She eliminated No. 1 Naomi Osaka in the third round.

The 37-year-old owns 23 Grand Slam titles, she's a mighty player. She gets angry at herself but then it's "OK, next point, it's all good". She had won 16 straight Grand Slam matches in a row before, with titles at the 2018 U.S. Open and the Australian Open in January. Williams also generated disappointment during last year's French Open as she withdrew after experiencing discomfort from a chest muscle injuries. "I don't really care about it too much", said Anisimova, the words flying out of her mouth with the same sort of pace that tennis balls zoom off her racket.

"I think she's (Barty) obviously playing well to make quarter-finals".

Argentine world No. 9 Juan Martin del Potro, meanwhile, routed Australia's Jordan Thompson 6-4, 6-4, 6-0 to set up a fourth-round clash against Russia's Karen Khachanov, who brushed aside Slovak Martin Klizan 6-1, 6-4, 6-3.

Admitting she was still "pretty far away" from hitting her stride, the 23-time Grand Slam victor, who usually does not play in events ahead of the grass-court climax, said: "I'm definitely feeling short on matches, and just getting in the swing of things".

Keys needed only 75 minutes to get past Siniakova, a Czech who is ranked No. 42 in singles and No. 1 in doubles.

However, despite dropping the second, the world No.8 bounced back in style in the third and showed that a blimp in the road didn't break her mental game. "I'm the most non-taking-a-chance kind of a person, but I felt like a seed was where we wanted to be".

Also, defending champion Simona Halep routed 18-year-old Iga Swiatek 6-1, 6-0 in 45 minutes. "I'm just so happy with this win". "That's OK. At least I can start trying to put the time in now". "All I know is, she was not ready and it was obvious, I think".

Williams ran her record in clay-court finals to 11-2, with Justine Henin being the only player to defeat her in title matches on the surface.

For the third time in three round Osaka lost the opening set, but this time she was unable to turn things around.

Serena Williams said about her financial investments, "I want to be a part of it and I want to be in the infrastructure". Barty had just 17 unforced errors in the victory and has won eight of her nine sets this tournament due to playing such clean tennis.
