    Jelena Jankovic routed Caroline Wozniacki 6-3, 6-1 to reach the quarter-finals of the BNP Paribas Open, winning a matchup of former tournament champions and number-one-ranked players.

    In the other women's draw match, sixth-seed Simona Halep of Romania beat Canada's Eugenie Bouchard 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 while Casey Dellacqua got a walkover against Lauren Davis.

    On the men's side, Spain's Roberto Bautista beat Jarkko Nieminen of Finland 6-2, 4-6, 7-6. The 24-th seed Marin Cilic beat Tommy Robredo 6-4, 6-3.
