Halep, who sealed her maiden Grand Slam trophy in Paris last year, began her defence sluggishly but has looked unstoppable in the last two rounds playing near flawless tennis.

The Romanian’s relaxed approach at Roland Garros has worked wonders for her confidence but a tricky quarter-final opponent awaits in the form of a fearless Anisimova, who is 10 years younger than her.

Anisimova showed glimpses of her quality on the big stage en route to the Australian Open fourth round this year and will go in search of her biggest career win against Halep.

The teenager, who claimed her first WTA title in Bogota earlier this year, has not dropped a set en route to the last-eight in Paris.

Head-to-head: This will be their first meeting.
