PARIS, France - No.3 seeds Martina Hingis and Chan Yung-jan were in impervious form at Roland Garros on Saturday, as they dropped just two games against Kristyna Pliskova and Viktorija Golubic to move into the third round.

With the 6-1, 6-1 victory, the duo improved their current winning streak to 10 straight matches, and look to raise their third straight trophy in Paris after winning the Mutua Madrid Open and the Internazionali BNL d'Italia on the European red clay.

The No.3 seeds have dropped just five games in two matches, and their victory sets up a meeting with No.13 seeds Kiki Bertens and Johanna Larsson for a spot in the quarterfinals.

Chan Hao-ching, the younger of the two Chan sisters competing in Paris, partnered recent N├╝rnberg Versicherungscup singles finalist Barbora Krejcikova to a hard-fought victory over Chinese pair Chang Liang and Wang Qiang.

In over two hours, the No.12 seeds advanced, 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 and Roland Garros could potentially see a meeting between the Chan sisters in the final.
