Latvian tennis player Anastasija Sevastova defeated Canadian Eugenie Bouchard- 6:3, 6:0 to go through to the third round of the French Open tennis tournament.

Sevastova broke Bouchard seven times to go along with her 21 winners. Bouchard, meanwhile, committed 22 unforced errors compared to just 10 winners.

Sevastova is 2-1 all-time against Bouchard.

The Canadian was playing in the second major of the season despite suffering a Grade 2 ankle sprain while preparing for last week's Nuremberg Cup.

She fought through the injury to win her first-round match against Japan's Risa Ozaki, but faltered against Latvia's Sevastova.

Trailing 5-0 in the second set, Bouchard double-faulted to set up match point, then hit an errant forehand to pick up her final unforced error of the match.

Sevastova will face the winner between Petra Martic and Madison Keys in the third round.
