"She's the No. 1 player in the world. I don't think it's going to be hard".

"I was really happy with the performance", Bencic told Tennis Channel. "I don't think it's going to be hard".

The 35-year-old German started thinking he had a chance early in the first set when he survived a handful of break points on his serve.

Osaka fired her coach and lost in the first round in Dubai before taking on a new coach, Jermaine Jenkins, who came on the court during the match.

"I think it's always a bit tricky whenever you change someone in the team, but I feel like for a first tournament we did really well", she said of her partnership with Jenkins, a former USA collegiate star who served as a hitting partner to Venus Williams from 2015 until the end of last season. It's one of the biggest goals that I have had my entire life.

"I feel like there is no anonymity", she said. "There wasn't anything that I could do in that situation".

After winning in 82 minutes, Australian Open champion Osaka will face Belinda Bencic for a spot in the quarter-finals after the 23rd seed defeated Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-4 6-2.

"I know her well. Obviously she has great serve and she's playing very flat and fast", Bencic said of Pliskova.

"I felt somehow odd and the match was unusual", said Pliskova.

EU's Verhofstadt: EU must increase pressure on Britain over Brexit
After a series of Parliamentary defeats , British Prime Minister Theresa May grudgingly gave lawmakers a chance to delay Brexit. May also needs to win over the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which has so far refused to back her plan.

Earlier in the day, Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova ran Halep ragged before dumping the Romanian out of the tournament 6-2 3-6 6-2.

Australian Open semi-finalist Collins put up a fight but it was not enough against Osaka, who won 6-4 6-2. Actually, today I cried after a long time.

"I always trust my fitness", Svitolina added.

"Yeah, I think it should be good". I'm really happy with myself.

"Because I might have thrown a few tantrums last year and this year it's something I'm working on improving and I feel like it's going well".

It is the first time Vondrousova has beaten a top-five player. Venus Williams reached the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Mona Barthel. The 38-year-old will collide with another former No. 1, Angelique Kerber, tomorrow. Nadal eased by 25th-seeded Diego Schwartzman 6-3, 6-1, while Federer defeated Swiss countryman Stan Wawrinka 6-3, 6-4. I felt like I can win that match. "It was an up and down match, a lot of emotions on court".

"She sort of came out there really aggressive", Osaka said. "It's extra motivation for me to play just a little bit better out there".

"I was trying to play every single point and still believing that I could turn around the match".

But I learn from these matches. The Canadian who is enjoying her breakout season is appearing in her first Premier Mandatory event.
