Serena Williams v Roberta Vinci Live
Top seeded women's player Serena Williams of the USA will be up against the 15th seeded Italian Roberta Vinci in their fourth round match at the French Open 2013.
Williams has had a winning run that extends to almost 30 matches and in this form it looks like she's almost unbeatable. Coming off a triumph at the Rome Masters after she also won the Madrid Masters, Williams has won all her first three round matches very convincingly.
In the first round she beat Anna Tatishvili before over-powering Caroline Garcia in her second. She dropped a total of four games in those first two matches. If one expected that things will get tougher for her in the third round against a seeded opponent in Sorana Cirstea, then the fans were mistaken.
Williams took the first set 6-0 against the Romanian before racing off to a 6-2 victory in the second set to clinch an easy fourth round berth.
Up against her will be the Italian Vinci, who has had a couple of very tough matches in the competition so far. After an easy first round win against S Foretz Gacon, she was taken to three sets by Galina Voskoboeva in the second round before winning in another three-setter against Petra Cetkovska.
Not only will that make things difficult against a player in such good form, it's also the fact that she's never beaten Williams before. In the two matches they have played, Williams has won both in straight sets.
