Coco Gauff breezed past Julia Grabher in straight sets, winning 6-2, 6-3 to advance to the third round at the 2023 French Open. She will be up against 16-year-old Mirra Andreeva next. The clash marks the first time Gauff will compete against a player younger than herself in a Grand Slam tournament.

Andreeva's fairytale run in Paris continued as she registered a 6-1, 6-2 win over Diane Parry. In doing so, the 16-year-old became the youngest player to reach the third round at the claycourt Major since 15-year-old Sesil Karatantcheva made a run to the quarterfinals in 2005.

Following her first-round win over Alison RIske-Amritraj, Andreeva gushed over Coco Gauff's treatment of her during their practice session.

"I actually practiced with Coco here. She's so good. But she plays so fast and she plays so aggressive and she's so nice," Andreeva said. "You know, I knew that she was a nice person but when I met her in life, she just came to me and said, 'Hi, I'm Coco. I don't think we've ever met but congratulations, nice to meet you'. She was so nice, oh my god. So yes, I can say that Coco is the most beautiful face for now that I've seen here."

Meanwhile, Sloane Stephens advanced to the fourth round in Paris after defeating Yulia Putintseva in three sets, winning 6-3, 3-6, 6-2. She will take on second seed Aryna Sabalenka on Sunday, June 4.
