Illness ends Serena's Indian Wells bid, No. 2 Halep advances

Muguruza advances to Indian Wells fourth round after Serena retires due to illness

Williams, a two-time champion of the event, trailed Garbine Muguruza before retiring due to a viral illness.

"Before the match, I did not feel great, and then it just got worse with every second; extreme dizziness and extreme fatigue", Williams was reported as saying on the tournament's official website. I didn't feel like I was moving well at all, " Osaka said.

"I think she started playing well, right away with her serve, with her shots, being very dominating, I had to adapt a little bit my position in the court, the way I was hitting, and it took me a few games to kind of do it".

"We've played many times and it's always super-tough, super-exciting", Muguruza said.

She defeated Victoria Azarenka 7-5 6-3 in her first match at Indian Wells on Friday.

She is now ranked 10th in the world and was playing in her first tournament since the Australian Open in January. It is important to note that Kozlova struggled with her own serving as she allowed Sasnovich to win 5 return games. Williams again consulted with a trainer and shortly after retired from the match, though she was able to walk off the court without assistance.

Deliberate, malicious intent , such as state-sponsored hacking and attacks, criminal behavior, and online harassment. On one issue, he's insistent: "Net neutrality - strong regulation", Berners-Lee said, hammering a fist on the table.

Muguruza will now play against number seven seed Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

In the men's draw, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal cruised into the round of 32. The Swiss ace won the first set 6-1 but had a more hard second set, which ended 7-5 while Nadal surrendered just two games against this American opponent winning 6-1,6-1.

Earlier in the day, No. 2 seed Simona Halep needed nearly two hours to beat qualifier Kateryna Kozlova 7-6 (3), 6-to reach the fourth round.

Kozlova led 6-5 and was within two points of winning the first set before Halep forced a tiebreaker in their first meeting.

Federer, who is seeking to break out of a tie with top seed Novak Djokovic for most titles in the California desert, looked set for a similarly easy time, but had to fight off a second-set challenge from German Peter Gojowczyk in a 6-1, 7-5 win. Next up for her is 18-year-old Bianca Andreescu who took an easier path into the round-of-16.
