Czech tennis player Lucie Safarova beat France's Amelie Mauresmo 6:3 7:6 in a third-round match at the French Open on Saturday. Fifth seed Mauresmo had fallen as the defending champion to the same opponent in the fourth round of this year's Australian Open. World number 29 Safarova, who claimed Justine Henin's scalp in the semi-finals of the Paris Open in February, goes on to meet Russia's Anna Chakvetadze for a place in the quarter-finals.
