Earlier, Halep breezed through her fourth round match on with a 7-5, 6-1 victory over China's Wang Qiang.

She will next play un-seeded Petra Martic of Croatia, who overcame Marketa Vondrousova 6-3, 7-6 to progress.

Halep is the only former Indian Wells victor left in the women's draw after No. 20 Daria Kasatkina upset No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 7-5.

Although the Chinese eventually stopped the rot with a break of her own, Halep soon took charge again and cruised to an ultimately routine victory.

She is now an impressive 17-1 this season having already won a title in both singles and doubles in Shenzhen.

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.

No. 32 Milos Raonic of Canada defeated Joao Sousa of Portugal 7-5, 4-6, 6-2 and will meet Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus, who beat lucky loser Dudi Sela of Israel 7-6 (7), 6-4.

"I wasn't missing that much".

Halep can hold onto the top ranking by reaching the final here.

Kasatkina said she is starting to believe in herself, especially when she faces top 10 players.

However, she can gain entry to eight tournaments in 12 months - including two Grand Slams - with her protected world number one ranking. Along with Iva Majoli, at 16 years and 199 days, Anisimova is the youngest player to reach the R16 at Indian Wells. I think this will change a little bit in the future, but for sure the game is good and not really any weakness. Wozniacki blew a 3-0 lead in the first set and was on the run most of the match before losing for the second time this year to the 20-year-old Russian. Playing the BNP Paribas Open for the second time, Osaka improved her best result in a Premier Mandatory event and became the first Japanese to make the quarter-finals here since 1996 when Kimiko Date lost to Martinez in the semifinals.

Williams, who is the oldest female player in the draw at 37, rallied in the second set against Sevastova to book her spot in the quarter-finals.

She next faces either wild card Danielle Collins or world number 27 Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain.

Kasatkina hit one ace, won 54 per cent of her first serves and broke Wozniacki's serve six times in the one hour, 40 minute match.
