PARIS, France - World No.4 Simona Halep continued her impressive form and reached the third round of the French Open for the first time with a straight set triumph over soon-to-be British No.1 Heather Watson on Thursday.
Halep came into this clash fresh off a 60 62 rout of Alisa Kleybanova in her Roland Garros opener, while Watson was a straight-set winner over Barbora Zahlavova Strycova after coming through qualifying.
