she won 6—2, 6—1 to continue her impressive form on the clay. next, she will face 24th seed donna vekic. the women's second seed karolina pliskova is out. the czech was comprehensively beaten by petra martic of croatia, losing in straight sets. in the men's draw, roger federer became the oldest man to reach the fourth round at roland garros in 47 years by beating norwegian casper ruud. federer was playing a record 400th grand slam match and beat ruud in straight sets, winning the third on a tie break. next up for the third seed is argentina's leonardo mayer. ii—time champion rafael nadal is also through to the last 16. no great surprise there. but after comfortably taking the first two sets, he was made to work by belgium's david goffin. nadal eventually coming

never likely to be enough with chris gayle out there, one of the greatest ever limited overs batsman, who is playing in his final world cup. catch him while you can. no—one in the stands is entirely safe. he is 39 now, an age when giving it a clout can put your back out. but the man who calls himself the universe boss made 50 before eventually coming back down to earth. the next generation of west indians did the rest. nicholas pooran finishing on a suitable high. if west indies keep playing cricket like this, their band of fans will keep on growing. patrick gearey, bbc news. look, i am look, iam not look, i am not thinking too far ahead. we have got australia next, we have got a long tournament here, just a matter of us taking it game by game and i am not getting ahead of myself. we just want to be consistent in everything we can focus on and control is cricket and we have three departments to make sure we are clinical and in terms of batting, bowling and fielding. i wa nt to batting, bowling and fielding. i want to be the best we can terms of
