Keys, an American, was slated to play Australia's Ajla Tomljanovic, a 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 victor over lucky-loser Magdalena Frech of Poland.

Venus Williams remains on course to reach the final of the Silicon Valley Classic for the ninth time, 20 years after her first appearance in the decider of the WTA Premier event.

Meanwhile, Venus Williams has also secured herself a spot in the quarter-finals after fending off the efforts of Brit Heather Watson 6-4 4-6 6-0 in the second round.

Awaiting her will be Maria Sakkari, who thrashed eighth seed Timea Babos 6-0 6-1.

After a convincing second set from Watson, Williams returned to court with renewed energy.

Boulter, 22, who knocked out fifth seed Aleksandra Krunic in the first round, lost 4-6 7-5 1-6 to American Kiick.

The hard-hitting 23-year-old, runner-up at last year's US Open where she lost to fellow American Sloane Stephens, is ranked no.12 in the world and was the second seed in San Jose. "She's from the new generation, and I'm from the old one, and I knew the pressure would be on me because she has nothing to lose". Buzarnescu rallied from a 5-3 deficit in the opening set, and broke Anisimova's serve to start the third set en route to a 4-0 lead.

The Polish player had been a break down in the final set, but won four consecutive games - and the last 13 points in a row - to close out the upset in two hours and five minutes. Buzarnescu said she felt the pressure against qualifier Anisimova.

With Garbine Muguruza already having retired, Keys was the highest seed remaining in the WTA Premier tournament as she prepared for Thursday's meeting with Ajla Tomljanovic.

"There were times when I had no answers".
