American teenager Coco Gauff is through to the French Open quarterfinals after she quickly dispatched Anna Karolína Schmiedlová of Slovakia in Monday's fourth round clash.
Gauff won 7-5 6-2 to advance to her third consecutive quarterfinals at Roland Garros.
The American took the early lead in the opening set, racing to a 5-2 lead before losing focus and and conceding a break to allow her opponent to claw back into the contest at 5-5.
However, the 19-year-old broke back immediately and held her serve to love to win the opening set.
The second set was a procession as Gauff did not allow her opponent any chances, sealing victory in one hour and 32 minutes.
"5-2 to 5-5. I just forgot about it, you have to forget and start over. From 5-5, I just kind of zoned in," Gauff said when asked about the problem-solving that she had to do in the first set while revealing that she has been learning French in the recent past.
The result means she might face World No.1 Iga Swiatek who faces Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko later on Monday.
Should this be the case, the match will be a repeat of last year's final which produced Swiatek as the champion.
