World No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki ousted in Indian Wells

World No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki ousted in Indian Wells

First she will have to get past unseeded Croatian Martic, who advanced to the last eight with a 6-3 7-6 (7-4) win over Marketa Vondrousova.

If Wang was high on confidence following her performances earlier in the tournament, her morale was surely raised further as she twice responded immediately to falling a break down in set one.

Halep started slowly and was trailing 5-4 in the opener before a pep talk from her coach saw her turn things around, losing just one more game as she wrapped up the match 7-5, 6-1.

Halep would lose only another game as Wang became increasingly impatient off the backhand side and gifted her opponent the chance to seal her 298th main draw win with her 29th unforced error.

Serena Williams should have been given top seeding at Indian Wells on her return from the birth of her daughter, says world number one Simona Halep.

She used her protected ranking to play at Wimbledon in the same year.

"She's serving strong and the kick is going to be tough".

Former world number one Karolina Pliskova also made it through to the quarter-finals, beating 16-year-old Amanda Anisimova 6-1 7-6 (6-2).

Pliskova's 6-1 7-6 (7-2) victory ended a remarkable run for the young American, a tournament wildcard who took out ninth-seeded Petra Kvitova in the third round for the biggest win of her young career.

The 20-year-old Kasatkina improved to 11-6 on the WTA Tour season as she seeks to better her quarter-final appearance here in 2016. "So I will have to work hard", Halep told the Tennis Channel.

Kerber thus extends her head-to-head lead over Garcia to 4-2, and avenges her loss to the Frenchwoman in their most recent match - a first-round encounter a year ago at the Dongfeng Motor Wuhan Open that kickstarted Garcia's run to back-to-back titles in Wuhan and Beijing and a spot in the Top 10.
