1s knocked out at Indian Wells

Tennis BNP Paribas Open Day 8

World No 1 and defending champion Naomi Osaka powered past American Danielle Collins 6-4, 6-2 on Monday to book a fourth-round meeting with resurgent Swiss Belinda Bencic at Indian Wells.

She followed that up with an Australian Open crown in January that propelled the 21-year-old to number one in the world.

Bencic's win was her second ever against a world number one.

Recalling her loss to Bencic at last year's Hopman Cup, the Japanese, who is seeking her first title defence, said: "That's really fantastic, the fact that she was able to come back from her injury and still play at a really top level". "But honestly, I think at a time like this with that scoreline, I would usually feel very depressed and sad".

With a win, Barty would have cracked the Top 10 for a first time.

Bencic next faces fifth-seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova, who downed Anett Kontaveit 7-6 (10/8), 4-6, 6-2.

"I never played her, so you're out there learning what they do well, what shots they select", Williams said, admitting that it wasn't until the second set that she felt 'OK, I understand'.

New Zealand mosques' attack suspect praised Trump in manifesto
A total of 41 people were killed at a mosque on Deans Avenue, Ardern said, and seven were killed at a mosque on Lynwood Avenue. The police commissioner would not confirm the shooter's name is Brenton Tarrant during the press conference .

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

"Here I have really good memories and you guys are super awesome", she said to the cheering crowd. Halep got injured during the match and received treatment for blisters on her foot. Her triumph in Australia made her No. 1 for the first time, but her time at the top has been rocky.

"I don't enjoy losing, nobody does, but especially in a tournament like this, a tournament where I have had plenty of success in the past", Djokovic, 31, said.

Osaka was blitzed by 23rd seed Belinda Bencic in straight sets as her title defence came to a surprise end in the fourth round.

Osaka, 21, said she lacked maturity when as a relative unknown player she won the tournament a year ago to kick off her meteoric rise through the rankings.

Canada's Bianca Andreescu, 18, continued her remarkable season with a 7-5 6-2 win over China's Wang Qiang. Williams will fight for a semi-final berth against eighth-seeded Angelique Kerber, who beat ninth-seeded Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus 6-1, 4-6, 6-4.

Spain's Muguruza, a two-time Grand Slam champion now ranked 20th in the world, out-lasted seventh-ranked Kiki Bertens 5-7, 6-1, 6-4 while Williams, a seven-time Grand Slam victor, beat Germany's Mona Barthel 6-4, 6-4.
