Serena Williams upbeat despite loss to sister Venus in Paribas Open

The 27-year-old world No. 2 Wozniacki moves on to the fourth round where she will face either reigning US Open champion Sloane Stephens or 20th seed Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation.

In their 29th career meeting, she lost to her sister, Venus Williams, in the third round at Indian Wells. She beat Diyas in straight sets. "Yeah, so I just have a long way to go, and I'm looking forward to the journey".

"I haven't played in over a year; it's definitely not less disappointing", she said of the defeat. I have a lot to improve on. "It's just real talent". Suarez Navarro had little trouble eliminating American wild-card entrant Danielle Collins 6-2, 6-4.

But for now, the rule stands and Serena, who will have an official ranking next Monday, will continue to be the most unsafe unseeded player in women's tennis. Serena was booed throughout the final before she beat Clijsters in three sets for her second title in the desert.

"It's a bit of everything that comes in a match that just doesn't normally happen", she said. "You can see she's hitting the ball without thinking, but everybody is playing like this when they are 16".

"I really abhor every time we play, but I do enjoy the battle when I'm out there", Serena said last weekend.

I'm definitely not thinking too far in the future.

It is for Serena but she is sure to find herself in familiar surroundings - the latter stages of tournaments - soon enough. "I don't want to go backward". She had that confidence after those matches what she was playing here.

Venus thus wasn't dwelling on her win Monday.

Pliskova advances to meet Naomi Osaka, a 6-1, 5-7, 6-1 victor over Greece's Maria Sakkari.

In another women's singles clash, 10th seed Angelique Kerber also reached last-16 after sweeping aside Russia's Elena Vesnina 7-5, 6-2.

If anyone thought Serena would retire from tennis after becoming a mom, the 36-year-old said she has her eyes on breaking the Grand Slam title record and being the most decorated tennis champ of all time.

Top-seeded Simona Halep of Romania posted a 7-5, 6-1 win over China's Qiang Wang.

The 10th-seeded Venus will face Anastasija Sevastova, who defeated 12th seeded Julia Georges 6-3 6-3.
