Teenager Marketa Vondrousova continued to impress at the French Open when she walloped Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova 6-2 6-0 to reach her maiden Grand Slam quarter-finals on Sunday.

The 19-year-old Czech, who made quarter-final appearances at Indian Wells and Miami and reached the final on clay in Istanbul this season, blew the 12th seed off court with a mix of power and guile from the baseline.

Vondrousova tormented a sorry Sevastova with drop shots throughout, bagging the last nine games to advance in searing heat on Court Philippe Chatrier.

She next faces 31st seed Petra Martic, who came from a set down to defeat Kaia Kanepi and reach her first ever Grand Slam quarter-final.

After claiming the first set, Kanepi had led by a break in the second but Martic rattled off six straight games to level up the match.

In the third, Kanepi again took an early advantage and although Martic could not produce the same flourish as in the previous set, she emerged victorious to book her quarter-final spot.
