PARIS (AP) -- American teen Sloane Stephens advanced to the fourth round at the French Open by beating Mathilde Johansson of France 6-3, 6-2 Friday.

Of the eight teenagers in this year's draw, the 19-year-old Stephens was the only one to even reach the third round.

Stephens, from Coral Springs, Fla., is making her fourth Grand Slam appearance. She reached the third round at the U.S. Open last year in what had been her career best at the major tournaments.

Stephens managed to break serve in seven of the nine games that Johansson served.

Two other American women are left in the tournament, Varvara Lepchenko and Christina McHale. They are scheduled to play their third-round matches on Saturday.
