Upsets, birthday wins mark Indian Wells tennis action

Posted : 14 March 2024

In a surprising upset, world number two Aryna Sabalenka was defeated by Emma Navarro in the fourth round of Indian Wells, marking Navarro's advancement to her first WTA 1000 quarter-final amidst cheers from the California crowd. Despite Sabalenka's recent success, including defending her Australian Open title in January, the 23rd seed Navarro clinched victory with a 6-3 3-6 6-2 triumph, showcasing her prowess on the court.


Meanwhile, third seed Coco Gauff celebrated her 20th birthday with an impressive performance, securing a dominant 6-0 6-2 win over Belgium's Elise Mertens. Gauff, the 2023 US Open champion, displayed her exceptional skills, wrapping up the first set in just 25 minutes and maintaining control throughout the match. With her sights set on further success, Gauff expressed her satisfaction with her performance, describing it as her best match of the tournament.


As Gauff and Navarro progress in the tournament, both players aim to make history by becoming the first American women to win at Indian Wells since Serena Williams in 2001. Gauff will face China's Yuan Yue in the semi-finals, while Navarro will take on Greek ninth seed Maria Sakkari, setting the stage for thrilling matchups as the competition intensifies at Indian Wells.
