PARIS (AP)—Maria Sharapova advanced to the fourth round of the French Open on Friday without losing a game, beating Paula Ormaechea of Argentina 6-0, 6-0 in 51 minutes.

The seventh-seeded Russian, who won the title at Roland Garros in 2012, has lost only 10 games through three rounds this year.

Sharapova will next face Samantha Stosur of Australia. Stosur reached the French Open final in 2010.
