Top seed Simona Halep schooled China's Wang Qiang 7-5 6-1 in a first-time meeting to book her spot in the women's quarter-finals at the Indian Wells Masters on Tuesday.

"I missed too many shots in the first set".

She used her protected ranking to play at Wimbledon in the same year.

The 25-year-old Czech Pliskova blasted four aces and broke Anisimova's serve three times in the one hour, 32 minute match.
