World No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki ousted in Indian Wells

World No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki ousted in Indian Wells

Only Wozniacki can usurp her atop the WTA rankings after Indian Wells, but she must win the title and hope Halep lose before the final.

Wozniacki had a chance to take it back but she needed to win the Indian Wells title to do it.

The turning point came after a string of unforced errors left Halep trailing 5-4 in the first set, prompting coach Darren Cahill to tell the defensive specialist to work longer points and reduce the error count.

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 previous year 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.

She will next play un-seeded Petra Martic of Croatia, who overcame Marketa Vondrousova 6-3, 7-6 to progress.

Garcia never got a foothold in the opening frame, and Kerber rolled to the set, clinching it when she returned an excellent Garcia serve right on the sideline, and Garcia failed to put the overhead back in play.

"I wasn't missing that much", she said.

However, a source here said Indian diplomats in Islamabad were being regularly tailed and intimidated. That evening, the First Secretary was aggressively followed when he left work for his residence.

Fifth seed Karolina Pliskova ended teenage American Amanda Anisimova's run with a 6-1 7-6 (7-2) victory.

Wang was the last Chinese player standing in the California desert, having achieved a career best result in Indian Wells by reaching the round of 16.

Other players to go thus far at the tournament prior to 17th birthday are Anna Kournikova (1998, R16), Kim Clijsters (2000, R16), Lina Krasnoroutskaya (2001, R16) and Maria Sharapova (2004, R16).

In the second set Anisimova, going for back-to-back top 10 win, recovered from a break down and maintained the set on serve towards the tiebreak. Halep reclaimed the ranking just before Indian Wells.

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.

"And, yeah, I'm playing (my) best matches against the best players".
