Steffi Graf ran her winning streak to 34 matches by sweeping to a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Linda Ferrando of Italy on Wednesday to reach the quarterfinals of the Citizen Cup at Hamburg, Germany.
Graf has dropped only one set in 1994.
Graf slammed a topspin backhand past Ferrando at the net to claim the first game, then routed her in 52 minutes.
"There were a few bad serves, but all-in-all I'm satisfied," said Graf.
Third-seeded Jana Novotna of Czech Republic reached the quarterfinals by breezing past Russia's Elena Makarova 6-1, 6-1, while eighth-seeded Katerina Maleeva of Bulgaria won her first-round match against Britain's Clare Wood, 6-2, 6-0.
Also reaching the quarterfinals were the winners of two all-German duels. Barbara Rittner edged Petra Begerow, 6-4, 5-7, 7-5 and sixth-seeded Sabine Hack ousted Meike Babel 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.
