Russian teenager Maria Sharapova reached the quarter-finals of the French Open for the first time on Sunday with a 6-3, 6-1 win against Germany's Marlene Weingartner.
Sharapova, the 18th seed, now takes on either 14th seeded Argentinian Paola Suarez or China's Zheng Jie for a place in the semi-finals.
The Russian 17-year-old wrapped up the match in 67 minutes firing down an impressive 34 winners against the outclassed German in their first career meeting.
Playing in only her second Roland Garros, Sharapova will fancy her chances of making the last four from a top half of the draw which has already lost defending champion and top seed Justine Henin-Hardenne.
