In the men's draw, world number one Novak Djokovic strolled into the fourth round with a 6-3 6-3 6-2 victory against Italian qualifier Salvatore Caruso. It was Williams whose strokes were off target: Her 34 unforced errors were twice as many as Kenin's total. Kenin wasn't even born when Williams made her Paris debut in 1998.
