Kasatkina Stunned Wozniacki At Indian Wells


Daria Kasatkina outplayed Caroline Wozniacki to move into the Indian Wells Masters quarterfinals.


World number two Caroline Wozniacki bowed out of the Indian Wells Masters, beaten by an in-form Daria Kasatkina in the fourth round on Tuesday.

Kasatkina claimed her second win over Wozniacki in 2018 with a 6-4 7-5 victory at the WTA Premier event.

The 20-year-old Russian produced a fine performance, hitting 22 winners and 20 unforced errors to win in one hour and 40 minutes.


The 2011 champion and a two-time runner-up at Indian Wells, Wozniacki gave up leads in both sets.

Wozniacki led 3-0 in the first set before losing five straight games, while the Dane let a 5-3 advantage slip in the second.

The Australian Open champion – who finished with 26 winners and 30 unforced errors – had few answers as Kasatkina produced excellent shots off both her forehand and backhand sides.
