Maria Sakkari vs. Simona Halep looked like the pick of the litter as the tournaments in Moscow and Tenerife hit the quarterfinal stage.

And it was, as three of the top four seeds went down without much of a battle.

Garbiñe Muguruza, who would have qualified for Guadalajara with a victory, won just two games and will have to take up that wild card in Romania next week.
