Romanian Simona Halep, who holds the World No.1 ranking, blew past Petra Martic in the quarterfinals of the BNP Paribas Open 6-4, 6-7(5), 6-3, progressing into her third Indian Wells semifinal in two hours and 23 minutes, according to WTA Tennis.

“[The wind was] a bit too much,” Halep smiled wryly afterwards. “Everything I had today frustration way, it was because of the wind.”

Halep will face 20-year-old Naomi Osaka for a place in her second Indian Wells final.
