Second-seeded Simona Halep made quick work of her third-round match at the US Open.

Facing a qualifier who had never advanced this far at a major, Halep beat 154th-ranked American Shelby Rogers 6-2, 6-3 in 67 minutes Saturday night.

Halep matched her deepest run at the US Open, the only Grand Slam tournament at which she hasn't reached at least the quarterfinals.
