Pierce powers through to fourth round
2003-08-30 16:35:14 GMT (Reuters)

NEW YORK, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Mary Pierce continued to build confidence, form and momentum at the U.S. Open on Saturday, the muscular Frenchwoman powering into the fourth round with a 6-4 6-1 win over Japan's Shinobu Asagoe.

Fighting back to fitness after two injury plagued seasons, Pierce has begun to show glimpses of the power game that helped her to win grand slam titles at the Australian and French Opens.

The 28-year-old, a quarter-finalist here in 1994 and 1999, breezed past the 55th ranked Asagoe on a sun-baked centre court in 71 minutes.

Pierce can equal her best effort at Flushing Meadows if she wins her next match against either Russian seventh seed Anastasia Myskina or Spain's Maria Sanchez Lorenzo.
