22 February, 2019, 22:39
The WTA event continues until 23rd February, with Thursday's quarter-finals featuring 2019 Brisbane victor and Australian Open semi-finalist Karolina Pliskova against Su-Wei Hsieh, 2019 Sydney champion and Australian Open runner-up Petra Kvitova against Viktoria Kuzmova, reigning French Open champion Simona Halep against Belinda Bencic and defending champion Elina Svitolina against Carla Suarez Navarro.
Second seed Kvitova, now the highest ranked player remaining in the field after the surprise elimination of Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka, outlasted American qualifier Jennifer Brady 7-5, 1-6, 6-3.
Third seed Halep also advanced with a 6-3, 7-5 victory over Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine in 1 hour, 20 minutes.
"My mindset now is just to finish the points as quick as possible", she said.
Second seed Kvitova lost the opening set to Katerina Siniakova before staging a recovery to win 6-7 (3-7) 6-4 6-4.
"I don't really care if I play the first match", the Australian Open runner-up said. "But I'm happy that I was able to get those two wins, which I think it's great when you don't playing your best and you still find a way to win it". I am a decent club player, but I have never reached those heights Interested in the nextgen.
"I feel like, even if I don't win any matches for the rest of the year, I wouldn't say I'm concerned".

"I don't really like the attention, so yeah, it's been a little tough". "When I was 0-2 down, I told myself, "Come on, you are here to make history in this tournament". The wind was just bad today, to be honest. Previous year in Miami, Pliskova prevailed in the deciding tie break and she was in a flawless position today, opening a significant lead before losing the energy and the drive to lose the last six games of the match and push Su-Wei into the semis. I'm trying to be more aggressive.
Tsurenko managed just a single point over the last three games as former world number one Halep demonstrated her superiority by taking a 7-0 lead in their head-to-head record. Also I have no expectations.
"Definitely it's a relief right now", said Kvitova.
Playing a second-round match after an opening bye as the tournament's top seed, Osaka won only 5 of 27 second-serve points, just 19 per cent, and barely half of her first-serve points, 12 of 22. I feel that my game is pretty strong. "This match is the result of that".
Osaka wiped away tears as she spoke of the challenge of adjusting to her new celebrity.
"It means a lot, honestly", Mladenovic said after booking a match with a Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro in the last 16.
