Svitolina breezes previous Garcia


Third seed Elina Svitolina ended the run of local hope Caroline Garcia with a comfortable 6-1 6-3 win to move into her third quarterfinal at Roland Garros. On a day that the women’s draw lost top seed Simona Halep and fifth seed Kiki Bertens, Svitolina, who reached the last-eight in 2015 and 2017, put in a solid performance to be the highest-ranked player remaining in the claycourt Grand Slam. Garcia had come from a set and a break down to win her past three meetings against fellow 26-year-old Svitolina, but there was no such repeat as the Ukrainian broke her opponent’s serve six times to complete victory in just 63 minutes.
