PARIS — Ottawa’s Gabriela Dabrowski and Croatia’s Mate Pavic cruised into the quarterfinals of the French Open mixed doubles tournament with a 6-2, 6-3 win over France’s Eduoard Roger-Vasselin and Andrea Sestini Hlavackova of the Czech Republic on Sunday.

The top-seeded pair of Dabrowski and Pavic finished off their opponents in just 55 minutes, firing five aces and converting three of five break point opportunities.

Pavic and Dabrowski will face Demi Schuurs and Matwe Middelkoop of the Netherlands in Monday’s quarterfinals.

Dabrowski won the mixed doubles title in Paris last year with India’s Rohan Bopanna. She also won the Australian Open mixed title this year with Pavic.

Dabrowski will also return to women’s doubles action Monday when she teams with China’s Yifan Xu for a third-round match against the Japanese duo of Makoto Ninomiya and Eri Hozumi.
