Six-time champion Rafael Nadal and women's No. 2 seed Maria Sharapova won in straight sets to reach the French Open's fourth round, while unseeded American Varvara Lepchenko upset 2010 winner Francesca Schiavone. "For the time being, everything is OK," Nadal, the men's No. 2 seed, said in a news conference. "Maybe I could improve my game a little, because the most difficult match is yet to come."
