Third seed Victoria Azarenka eased into the French Open quarter- finals with a convincing victory over former champion Francesca Schiavone.

Azarenka, who emerged champion at the Australian Open defeated the 2010 Roland Garros winner 6-3, 6-0.

The Belarusian, who has never gone beyond the quarter- finals of the French Open, admitted after the match that she is becoming more comfortable on clay, after the match.

“I think am learning more now and I’m adjusting much better.

“It’s no doubt it’s been the most challenging year for me, but I feel like I’m finally understanding what I need to do to improve. I’m on the right way,” the 23- year- old said.

Germany’s Tommy Haas also had a convincing win over a bad- tempered Mikhail Youzhny at the Court Suzanne Lenglen.

Youzhny smashed his racquet 9 times on the back of his chair in the course of the contest, but eventually lost 6-1, 6-1, 6-3.

“In this situation you try to do everything that maybe can help you come back to the court. But I try this way; it doesn’t help really,” Youzhny admitted in the wake of defeat.

At the age of 35, Haas became the oldest man to reach a Grand Slam quarter- final since Andre Agassi, in 2005 US Open.

The 12th seed beat world number one Novak Djokovic in Maimi earlier this season, reached the final of two other Tour events, won Munich and finished as runner- up to Milos Raonic in San Jose.
