  • Naomi Osaka Simona Halep sent packing from Indian Wells

The 22-year-old Bencic, who has risen as high as world number seven before missing time with injuries, hit a forehand volley on match point to seal the win and send her into the quarterfinals, where she will face either Karolina Pliskova or Anett Kontaveit. "I was just fighting for every point". She won everything in the past couple of months. "But I think now there is way too many videos and too many people have watched my matches". I'm really happy with myself.

"I'm very confident with my game right now". I'm hitting the ball well. "So just things worked out for me".

Osaka's defeat capped a black day for top seeds in the combined WTA-ATP Masters event, with men's world number one Novak Djokovic stunned by 39th-ranked Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Naomi Osaka followed Simona Halep through the exit door at the BNP Paribas Open on Tuesday as the top two players in the world were sent packing in the fourth round at Indian Wells.

In-form Swiss Bencic blitzed the top seed, who surprisingly relinquished her crown following 28 unforced errors and just 10 winners. "But it's everything I could do today".

Halep's loss ensured Osaka will retain her number one ranking after the tournament.
