Samantha Stosur remained on track to return to the French Open final by beating Simona Halep 6-0, 6-2 in the second round Wednesday.

The eighth-seeded Stosur had 21 winners and broke her opponent six times before she served out the match at love.

Stosur reached the final at Roland Garros last year but lost to Francesca Schiavone. In 2009, Stosur reached the French Open semifinals.

Stosur also won her first-round match against Iveta Benesova in straight sets. She next plays either Gisela Dulko or Tsvetana Pironkova.
