Britain’s Harriet Dart and Germany’s Angelique Kerber were eliminated from the Indian Wells Championships after being beaten by Madison Keys and Iga Schwontik, respectively, in the fourth round of the tournament on Wednesday.
American Madison Keys, seeded 25th, beat Dart 6-1, 6-4 to advance to the quarterfinals.

Dart is expected to climb into the top 100 in the WTA rankings after her debut at the Indian Wells Championships, in which she defeated Elina Svitolina, who is ranked 18th in the rankings.

Having climbed through the playoffs and reached the fourth round at a major WTA tournament, Dart is expected to rise to at least 99th in the world rankings.

Australian Open semifinalist Madison Keys needed just over an hour to seal the match against Dart and qualify for the quarterfinals in Indian Wells for the first time, BA Media reported.

In the quarterfinals, Keys will face third-seeded Iga Swientek of Poland, who won the French Open (Roland Garros) title in 2020.

Švientek qualified by defeating Kerber 4/6, 6/2, 6/3.

Romanian star Simona Halep qualified for the quarterfinals by defeating compatriot Sorana Cerstia 6-1, 6-4, and will face Croat Petra Martic in the quarterfinals.
