Halep and Venus into Indian Wells quarters, Wozniacki falls

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.

Needing to move to the semifinals to have a chance of staying in the Top 5, Pliskova will face Pliskova's victory sets up a quarterfinal encounter for the World No.5 against Naomi Osaka who defeated 6-1 5-7 6-1 Maria Sakkari. The oldest player in the draw, needing to reach the final to improve on her current ranking of No.8, can potentially return to the Top 5 if she wins the title and Karolina Pliskova does not reach the semifinal.

"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.

Earlier on Tuesday, Halep booked a quarter-final place against Petra Martic after getting the better of China's Wang.

The world number one emerged on top of a tight first set and rolled through the second over the course of a 7-5, 6-1 defeat of Wang on Tuesday, reports Xinhua news agency.

Halep called for a timeout in the first set so her coach Darren Cahill could come down to the court to discuss strategy.
