Venus Williams Cruises Into Her Tenth Roland Garros Last 16

Day 6 at Roland Garros saw a lot of American interest. Twenty years after her Roland Garros debut, Venus Williams, defeated Mertens 6-3 6-1 to go through to the last 16 for the tenth time in Paris where she will face the talented Swiss player, Timea Bacsinszky. Fellow American, Cici Bellis, will have to wait another day to finish her match against Caroline Wozniacki. A match that looks likely to go to a third set was halted by rain just before the close of play. On the men's side, Steve Johnson's emotional run at Roland Garros came to end. The Californian lost in straight sets to Austrian 6th seed, Dominic Thiem.
