'13 runner-up Ferrer keeps up perfect mark against Seppi to return to 4th round at French Open

  • Print

PARIS - David Ferrer extended his perfect career mark against Andreas Seppi to easily get back to the French Open's fourth round a year after reaching the final.

The fifth-seeded Ferrer improved to 7-0 against Seppi, 15-0 in sets, by beating the 32nd-seeded Italian 6-2, 7-6 (2), 6-3 at Roland Garros on Saturday.

Ferrer, who has lost a total of 26 games through three matches, will face No. 19 Kevin Anderson of South Africa for a place in the quarterfinals. Anderson advanced when Ivo Karlovic retired after one set Saturday.

In 2013 at Roland Garros, Ferrer reached his first Grand Slam final before losing to Rafael Nadal.

Seppi is 1-50 in his last 51 matches against opponents ranked in the top 10.
