Muguruza will face French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in the quarterfinal round after the Latvian defeated Monica Puig of Puerto Rico 6-2, 3-5, 6-3.

Barty will meet Ostapenko, the only seed to reach the semifinals. Muguruza, perhaps buoyed by her performance in the first set, was able to break back and even up proceedings at 3-3, though the Spaniard was no longer playing as well as she had in the first set and was immediately broken once again.
