Elina Svitolina eases past Garbine Muguruza in Dubai

That didn't happen, so... I wasn't really that prepared for this tournament. "I started badly", the world number 26 said.

"I think my reason is I wouldn't put success over my happiness".

Halep has yet to drop a set in her two matches in Dubai, the Romanian making up ground on world number one Naomi Osaka in the rankings with Wednesday's 6-3 7-5 win. And both women moved into the quarter-finals after overcoming second-set challenges.

Some seeds did join Osaka in exiting, though, with Kiki Bertens departing after defeat in a third-set tie-break to Viktoria Kuzmova, while Caroline Garcia went down to Jennifer Brady in straight sets.

"I was playing my best tennis and I was handling the first set pretty good but then it is frustrating to have this kind of injury".

Sabalenka dominated the second set, with breaks in the second and eighth games allowing her to level things. After a 10th double-fault on her first match point, Kvitova sealed the win with a victor at the net.

"My mind-set now is just to finish the points as quick as possible". "I still make some mistakes, but I'm glad that I keep trying, keep trying, keep trying". I feel good on court.

"See, it's a little bit hard because I feel like people are staring at me, and not in a good way".

Jim Boeheim struck and killed pedestrian walking along highway
Driving conditions after the game were reportedly icy in spots, but it's unclear if that played any role in the accident. Boeheim has been the head coach at Syracuse for 42 years, making his debut with the team all the way back in 1976.

"And because past year I wasn't even anywhere close to this ranking and people didn't pay attention to me and that's something that I'm comfortable with". After taking more than two and a half hours to beat Katerina Siniakova in her opener, she spent another two and a quarter hours on court against Brady.

"I'm here to win matches, try to improve my game each match".

In the third round, Svitolina just 1 hour and 2 minutes defeated the ex-first racket of the world Garbinie the Wind. "It was really hard to find a way with it", Kvitova said. "Today I didn't really feel in a match mood, I don't know why". For now, it's like the biggest tennis news, I guess.

The Wimbledon champion in 2011 and 2014 said she was unfazed about the early start. I wasn't really that prepared for this tournament.

"I'm still a little angry about it as I felt I was playing really good and I was playing good shots during the game", Jabeur said.

American Sofia Kenin, victor of last month's Hobart title, defeated Russian 11th seed Daria Kasatkina 6-3, 2-6, 6-4.

Angelique Kerber, a semi-finalist on her last two appearances here, lost to Hsieh Su-Wei 5-7, 6-4, 6-0.
