ATP RELEASE

Last year’s runner-up, fifth seed David Ferrer, reached the Roland Garros third round for the 10th straight year with a 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 victory over No. 150-ranked qualifier Simone Bolelli, hitting 22 winners and committing just as many unforced errors.

Despite the win, Ferrer said, "I didn't really feel that great. I have to gain confidence, to start with, and on the short points I have to hit the balls harder. I hope that I'll improve my game."

Ferrer, who has a 13-match winning streak against qualifiers at the Grand Slam championships, will next play No. 32 seed Andreas Seppi, who recorded his 250th tour-level match wins on Tuesday. Seppi beat a winner of seven ATP World Tour clay-court titles, Juan Monaco, 6-2, 6-4, 6-4.

Ivo Karlovic, who was runner-up at the Dusseldorf Open on Saturday (l. to Kohlschreiber), lost seven of his first service points and hit 24 aces in a 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Andreas Haider-Maurer.

He will challenge No. 19 seed Kevin Anderson, who held his nerve in spite of French support for wild card Axel Michon, playing his first tour-level event at No. 206 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, to record a 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 win. It was his 30th match win on a clay-court.
