Third-seeded Caroline Garcia of France, the Acapulco runner-up, beat Francesca Schiavone of Italy 7-6 (2), 6-0 in the late match to set up a quarterfinal against eighth-seeded Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia.

Fifth-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia also advanced, beating Johanna Larsson of Sweden. 6-4, 6-4. Pavlyuchenkova will play second-seeded Sara Errani of Italy.

In the other quarterfinal, top-seeded defending champion Ana Ivanovic of Serbia will play Kristina Mladenovic of France.
