PARIS (AP) — Serena Williams advanced to the fourth round at the French Open by beating Sorana Cirstea 6-0, 6-2 Friday.

Ranked No. 1, Williams has won a career-best 27 consecutive matches. Since losing in the first round a year ago at Roland Garros, Williams is 70-3, including titles at Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, the London Olympics and the season-ending WTA Championships.

Against the No. 26-seeded Cirstea, Williams committed only 16 unforced errors. She has lost six games in three matches.
