Viral illness rocks Serena Williams, other players at Indian Wells

Viral illness rocks Serena Williams, other players at Indian Wells

It was a statement win for a variety of reasons: it was Muguruza's first completed match win over a Top 10 player since Dubai 2018, and, perhaps more tellingly, her first time reaching a Premier Mandatory quarterfinal since 2017.

"By the score, it might have looked like I started well, but I was not feeling at all well physically", Williams said in comments distributed by tournament officials.

She took to the court for the second set, but retired after world number 20 Muguruza held in the opening game.

"I think it was a very tough match. Now it's about getting healthy and about recovering and preparing myself for Miami, because Miami is a tournament I do well in".

The ninth-seeded German, Angelique Kerber is through to the quarterfinals of the Indian Wells 2019 as she ousted World Number nine, Aryna Sabalenka in the fourth round. All five of their prior matches came in Grand Slams, the last two in Grand Slam finals with Williams winning at Wimbledon in 2015 and Muguruza walking off with the 2016 French Open crown. This time, it's a Spaniard, Garbine Muguruza who is knocked out of the BNP Paribas Open by an 18-year-old Canadian, Bianca Andreescu.

After a first-round bye in Indian Wells, she beat Victoria Azarenka 7-5, 6-3 on Friday night. "I think we both played well", Muguruza told press at Indian Wells after the win.

Federer has reached the final of the desert tournament in his last four appearances, winning two years ago.

However, the Swiss world number four broke straight back, then benefited from a Gojowczyk double-fault for another break, before serving out for victory. "I had to adapt a little bit my position in the court, the way I was hitting".

The 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams, the men's number three seed Alexander Zverev, and the women's number 11 seed Anastasija Sevastova have all reportedly suffered the effects of the sickness which includes "extreme dizziness and extreme fatigue", Williams said according to the BBC.

World number two Rafael Nadal, a three-time Indian Wells victor, needed just 72 minutes to get past American Jared Donaldson with a 6-1 6-1 victory to set up a meeting with Diego Schwartzman, who beat Spain's Roberto Carballes 6-3 6-1.
