World No.1 and last year’s runner-up Caroline Wozniacki cruised to the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells by defeating Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez for the first time in their four meetings. In the 6-1 6-3 victory over the Spaniard, Wozniacki was just as dominant as in her opening match of the tournament, against Sloane Stephens in the second round.
Throughout the 71-minute match, the Stella McCartney-clad Dane held her serve and made no double faults, while she broke the 28th-seeded Martinez Sanchez four times.
Wozniacki’s next opponent will be seed No.22 Alisa Kleybanova, who defeated 13th seed Flavia Pennetta 6-3 6-4 in the third round.
