Mladenovic feeling the love in Paris

Garbine Muguruza clinched a last 16 berth with a 7-5, 6-2 victory over Yulia Putintseva, while men's tenth-seed David Goffin retired due to an ankle injury when leading 5-4 in the first set in the third round of French Open tennis tournament here on Friday.

Mladenovic came to the French Open after a stellar claycourt season in which she reached the finals in Stuttgart and Madrid and has won over the crowd with her spirited performances in Paris.

The fourth-seeded Muguruza was pushed in the first set but proved too strong to win in straight sets. Muguruza has that pep in her step that we're used to seeing when she's playing well, and you have to like her chances to repeat if she's going to continue returning the way she has. The 23-year-old will require every weapon at her disposal when she takes to a partisan Suzanne Lenglen at 11am, with the boisterous home fans ready to cheer the new darling of Roland Garros to the rafters in a game between two players aiming to outgun each other from the back of the court.

The 24-year-old got off to a flying start against Muguruza, who peppered the court with unforced errors as the Frenchwoman opened a 4-1 lead.

If you're looking for a fourth round upset, Mladenovic could be a solid pick given the way she's hitting winners and the fact she's going to be a massive crowd favorite. "It's something I know to work on and to handle", quoted Maldenovic as saying.

"Yeah, tough draw, but I think it's also tough for her".

It appeared there was no love lost between the players either, with Muguruza asked about Mladenovic's habit of shouting "forza" in Italian at key moments.
