Paris - Top-seeded Sara Errani of Italy had little trouble reaching the Open GDF Suez quarter-finals on Thursday, leading 4-0 in the first set when Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia retired with a stomach complaint.

Errani will meet Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain in the last eight, after she upset eighth-seeded Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-3.
