Indian Wells:Osaka, Halep out; Muguruza & Andreescu through

Naomi Osaka of Japan is congratulated by Danielle Collins after their match during the BNP Paribas Open at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden

Bencic - who beat four top-10 players on the way to the title in Dubai last month, her first trophy in four years - next faces fifth-seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova, who downed Anett Kontaveit 7-6 (10/8), 4-6, 6-2.

But there were no tears on Tuesday as Osaka said she was adjusting to being the world number one and always having a target on her back.

I think before I didn't realize that so much.

"In the first set I was just really flat-footed".

"I think it's always a bit tricky whenever you change someone in the team, but I feel like for a first tournament we did really well", she said of her partnership with Jenkins, a former U.S. collegiate star who served as a hitting partner to Venus Williams from 2015 until the end of last season.

It also brings back the secret June 2016 tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and Lynch. Collins had released transcripts of the committee's closed-door interview with Page earlier this week.


"I think I'm just more confident in myself".

"She was playing really fast and flat, so that was something I was not really expecting", the German said of her opponent. Osaka's defeat capped a black day for top seeds in the combined WTA-ATP Masters event, with men's world number one Novak Djokovic stunned by 39th-ranked Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Top seed Naomi Osaka was blitzed by Belinda Bencic, while Simona Halep went down to Marketa Vondrousova in the last 16. Halep, who received treatment for blisters on her foot during the match, hit just six winners and piled up 36 unforced errors.

"I felt comfortable with trying to control the point from there", said Williams, who fired 20 winners and converted seven of her nine break point chances. "But it's everything I could do today".

Osaka was blitzed by 23rd seed Belinda Bencic in straight sets as her title defence came to a surprise end in the fourth round.

Unseeded Canadian Bianca Andreescu' run continues, upsetting 18th seed Wang Qiang of China 7-5, 6-2 to reach the final eight. Very special to beat the No. 1. "I need to do what I want, and what I want is to play the tournaments I want to play".


She will play Ukraine's Elina Svitolina, who beat Australian Ashleigh Barty 7-6 (10-8) 5-7 6-4, in the next round.

Andreescu improved her match record for 2019 to 25-3, including qualifying, as she became the youngest player to make the last eight at Indian Wells since a 17-year-old Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova reached the semis in 2009. Former world number ones Venus Williams and Garbine Muguruza made it into the quarter-finals.

Seven-time grand slam victor Venus Williams also found it tricky facing fellow American Christina McHale for the first time, but she pulled back early breaks in each set to win 6-2, 7-5. She rallied past Andrea Petkovic in the opening round and followed up by outlasting No. 3 seed Petra Kvitova in a third-set tiebreaker.

Williams, who made the semifinals in the desert a year ago, was playing McHale for the first time.
