Osaka and Halep crash out of Indian Wells

  • Indian Wells 2019: Naomi Osaka marches ahead, ill Zverev beaten in Paribas Open

"She's the No. 1 player in the world". She won everything in the past couple of months.

"I'm so happy to be through and so happy with my play".

On this unexpected victory, Bencic said, "I was really happy with the performance". The first set was great for me, and then I just tried to keep it like that. "I'm very confident with my game right now".

Bencic has thrashed four top 10 players in Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships held in February 2019. It's one of the biggest goals that I have had my entire life.

"I think I'm playing well all week but this is something special because she's number two in the world", Vondrousova said. "There wasn't anything that I could do in that situation".

Czech fifth seed Karolina Pliskova stands in the way of Bencic and the semi-finals following her 7-6 (7-0) 4-6 6-2 win over Anett Kontaveit. We practiced a lot together. "So just things worked out for me".

"It is different from previous year, but I think I am getting used to it", Osaka said. But I feel like in Indian Wells it's a little bit more intimate compared to all the other tournaments because, like, I usually practice on Court 3, so there are people surrounding every section of the court.

The women's field lost its top two seeds as Romania's Halep, the 2015 Indian Wells victor, fell to Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova 6-2, 3-6, 6-2.

Golden Tate has hilarious reaction to Giants signing him
Why not outbid the Indianapolis Colts to lock up Devin Funchess on a one-year deal, for, say, $14 million? Showtime Tate is the best.

Only 65 minutes went by as Osaka was on the receiving end of a comprehensive 6-3 6-1 defeat to Bencic. "But that was in the beginning of 2018 when you guys didn't know who I was". It's one of my strengths, I would say.

"I just got unlucky, got a virus somewhere and that's how it is".

"Because I might have thrown a few tantrums last year and this year it's something I'm working on improving and I feel like it's going well". "But it's everything I could do today".

Next up for Vondrousova - who ensured two teenagers reached the Indian Wells quarters for the first time since 2009 following Bianca Andreescu's upset of Wang Qiang, which set up a match against Garbine Muguruza - is Elina Svitolina.

Keber outlasted Aryna Sabalenka 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 coming from 4-1 down in the third to win.

Osaka's first-serve percentage was 66 and she won 70 percent of her first-serve points.

Bencic was the youngest woman to break into the top 10 since 2009 when she made the list in February 2016 as an 18-year-old, but a litany of injuries has stalled her progress. The Canadian who is enjoying her breakout season is appearing in her first Premier Mandatory event.

Osaka had won nine straight games at Indian Wells, but Martina Navratilova in 1990-91 remains the only women's repeat victor in the event.
