New Zealand tennis number one Marina Erakovic and her doubles partner Arantxa Parra Santonja have won through to the third round of the French Open.

They beat the German duo Kristina Barrois and Annika Beck in straight sets.

Erakovic says she's enjoying her playing with her Spanish partner who she credits with a powerful game and strong serve.

They now face a French pair, Julie Coin and Pauline Parmentier, after the unseeded combination upset the Russian third seeds Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina in the third round.
