Swiatek, Murray out in 4th round at Indian Wells

Indian Wells (US), Oct 13: Upsets dominated the fourth round at the BNP Paribas Open, with three top-five seeds getting dismissed in straight sets.
No. 2 Iga Swiatek, the highest remaining women’s seed, lost to No. 24 Jelena Ostapenko 6-4, 6-3 on Tuesday. Ostapenko rallied from a break down in both sets on a day when the weather calmed down from the rain and wind that affected some of Monday’s matches.

U.S. Open runner-up Leylah Fernandez lost to Shelby Rogers 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (4). Rogers knocked out world No. 1 Ash Barty in the third round at last month’s Open before losing to Emma Raducanu in the fourth round.
American Taylor Fritz beat No. 5 Matteo Berretini 6-4, 6-3. Karen Khachanov defeated No. 12 Pablo Carreno Busta 6-0, 6-4. No. 6 Casper Ruud outlasted Lloyd Harris 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-4. Jannick Sinner advanced via walkover against American John Isner. (AP)
