Paris, June 3 - Simona Halep held off Sloane Stephens of the US 6-4, 6-3 to advance to the quarter-finals of the French Open Monday.

Halep, 22, will now appear in her first-ever French Open quarterfinal. She reached her first Grand Slam last eight at this year's Australian Open, Xinhua reported.

The fourth-seeded Romanian, the highest-remaining seed, will play the winner between Svetlana Kuznetsova and Lucie Safarova.
