Italians too strong for Casey and Ash

Casey Dellacqua and Ash Barty have been ousted from the Roland Garros doubles quarterfinals in straight sets by second-seeded Italians Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci.

The seventh-seeded Australians were hoping to turn the tables on Errani and Vinci following their defeat to the Italians in the Australian Open 2013 final, but were routed 6-0, 6-1.

Errani and Vinci go on to face unseeded pair Lucie Hradecka and Michaella Krajicek or New Zealand’s Marina Erakovic and Spaniard Arantxa Parra Santonja, who play their quarterfinal on Wednesday.

The top seeds, Su-Wei Hsieh of Taiwan and Peng Shuai of China, recovered from a rocky second set to beat Zimbabwe’s Cara Black and India’s Sania Mirza 6-2, 3-6, 6-3.
