Wozniacki loses in California, Halep wins

Earlier, Halep breezed through her fourth round match on with a 7-5, 6-1 victory over China's Wang Qiang.

World No. 1 Simona Halep and Venus Williams punched their tickets to the Indian Wells quarter-finals, while Caroline Wozniacki suffered another exit at the hands of Russia's rising star Daria Kasatkina.

Halep needs to reach the final at the Tennis Garden to hang onto her top WTA ranking against a charge from Australian Open victor and formerly top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki.

"I wasn't missing that much", said the 26-year-old, who showed no sign of the foot injury that forced her to withdraw from the Qatar Total Open in Doha last month and appears poised to regain the title she won in 2015.

Halep needed just 76 minutes on the main stadium court to dispatch Wang as she won 64 percent of her first-serve points and broke Wang's serve seven times.

Giants, Texans left battling it out for Nate Solder
Still, for a Texans team coming off a 4-12 season, and with Deshaun Watson coming off a torn ACL, Solder would likely be worth it. Other options on the offensive line for the Giants in free agency are Ryan Jensen, Josh Sitton, Joe Berger and Nick Easton.

Halep said she is happy with the way she is playing at this stage in the tournament.

"She outsmarted me today", Wozniacki said.

Juan Martin del Potro beat Spaniard David Ferrer 6-4 7-6 (6-3) and will play fellow Argentine Leonardo Mayer, who defeated Japan's Taro Daniel 6-4 6-1.

Wozniacki had a chance to take it back but she needed to win the Indian Wells title to do it. "I am confident. I am feeling the game", she said. She was the last Chinese singles player standing in the California desert.

"I missed too many shots in the first set". Playing the BNP Paribas Open for the second time, Osaka improved her best result in a Premier Mandatory event and became the first Japanese to make the quarter-finals here since 1996 when Kimiko Date lost to Martinez in the semifinals. "I dominated a little bit more". It was the first time Venus has beaten Serena since 2014 in Montreal.

Williams, who is the oldest female player in the draw at 37, rallied in the second set against Sevastova to book her spot in the quarter-finals.

Pliskova's 6-1 7-6 (2) win ended the run of the young American, a wild card who beat ninth seed Petra Kvitova in the third round for the biggest win of her fledgling career.
