Marina Erakovic and doubles partner Arantxa Parra Santonja moved into the last 16 at the French Open, with a 7-5 6-1 victory in the second round.

The Kiwi No 1 and her Spanish partner needed 48 minutes to subdue the German pair of Kristina Barrios and Annika Beck in the first set, before running away with the match, winning the second set in 35 minutes.

The pair, ranked 16th, will next face Russian third seeds Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Visnina or French pair Julie Coin and Pauline Parmentier for a spot in the quarterfinals.

Erakovic was ousted from the women's singles in the second round yesterday, losing 6-4 6-4 to Czech Petra Kvitova.
