Pliskova faces a quarterfinal against Naomi Osaka, who beat Maria Sakkari of Greece 6-1, 5-7, 6-1.

Although Halep's own performance was far from faultless, particularly in the first set, the Romanian triumphed 7-5 6-1 and will now face Petra Martic in the last eight.

"I think she should have been actually number one seed in this tournament because she left as number one in the world".

"It was a quick turnaround from last night when it feels like, 'Hey, this is a final to you're only in the fourth round, '" Williams said on court.

In other women's matches, eighth seeded Venus Williams survived a stern test from Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova to win 7-6 (8/6), 6-4 and fifth-seeded Karolina Pliskova beat Amanda Anisimova of the United States of America 6-1, 7-6 (7/2).

The 20-year-old Kasatkina, who has beaten all four reigning Grand Slam champions in the past year, continued her giant-killing form with a 6-4, 7-5 shock victory over world No 2 Wozniacki.

"That's why I'm trying just to go in to watch every time I can". She lost to her sister Venus in third round match of the event. But as I say, if you want to be on the top, you have to beat the top players. "So quite simple rule".

Kasatkina next plays 10th seed Angelique Kerber, of Germany, who roared past seventh seeded Caroline Garcia 6-1, 6-1.

The Croatian tennis player's run at Indian Wells has featured a win over sixth seeded Jelena Ostapenko.

"I stayed so many weeks off with injury and now coming back, so I was a little bit exhausted". In the second set, Martic served for the match at 6-3 5-3 and got to 30-30, but Vondrousova came back and serve for the second set at 6-5.

Herbert remains in contention for the $1 million bonus offered to a player who sweeps the singles and doubles titles.

The 29-year-old Del Potro improved to 7-6 overall against Ferrer and his five consecutive victories date back to the 2013 Wimbledon quarter-finals. He spoiled a potential all-American quarterfinal by beating No. 8 Jack Sock 7-6 (8), 4-6, 6-4.
