Halep, 25, is viewed as one of this year´s title favourites at Roland Garros after winning the Madrid Open and reaching the final in Rome last month.

She raced through the opening set against 26th seed Kasatkina but needed to save four set points in the second before clinching victory.

Halep will face Spain´s Carla Suarez Navarro for a place in the quarter-finals.
