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.

Halep advances to the quarter-finals and will face unseeded Petra Martic of Croatia, who advanced to the last eight with a straight sets 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) win against Czech Marketa Vondrousova on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Halep, who is one of two former champions left in the draw, is now 17-1 on the season having already won a title in both singles and doubles at Shenzhen, China.

Jake Arrieta pens heartfelt letter to Chicago
Arrieta, who just turned 32, had a 3.53 ERA last season in 168.3 innings over 30 starts with the Cubs. Jake Arrieta is getting work in with the Phillies , even if his window before the season is tight.

After recently taking back the world No. 1 ranking from Caroline Wozniacki, Halep is off to a fantastic start at the tournament. Halep reclaimed the ranking just before Indian Wells.

"It was really important, because he just told me what I have to do". She asked Darren Cahill's advice and her coach suggested her to work longer points and reduce the error count. But as I say, if you want to be on the top, you have to beat the top players.

"So it was a good chat".

Halep would lose only another game as Wang became increasingly impatient off the backhand side and gifted her opponent the chance to seal her 298th main draw win with her 29th unforced error. Along with Iva Majoli, at 16 years and 199 days, Anisimova is the youngest player to reach the R16 at Indian Wells.

"The previous match was really tough for my body", said Halep, who missed some time this year with a right foot injury. "So I know a little bit how she's playing, but I will focus on myself like always".

"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.
