PARIS —

Simona Halep reached the fourth round at a third consecutive Grand Slam tournament, beating 55th-ranked Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor of Spain 6-3, 6-0 at the French Open on Saturday.

At No. 4, Halep is the highest seeded woman left at Roland Garros, because of early losses by No. 1 Serena Williams, No. 2 Li Na and No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska.

Halep, a Romanian, had never been past the second round of the French Open before. She was the girls' champion in 2008.

She'll face 15th-seeded Sloane Stephens of the United States for a berth in the quarterfinals. Stephens reached the fourth round at the French Open for the third year in a row by eliminating No. 22 Ekaterina Makarova of Russia 6-3, 6-4.
