Desert lover Carla Suarez Navarro could trouble Venus
Williams no certainty to make semis
BT Sport 1, from 6pm Thursday
Carla Suarez Navarro loves playing in Indian Wells and the Spaniard could cause problems for her BNP Paribas Open quarter-final opponent Venus Williams.
Venus, who defeated in-form Anastasija Sevastova 7-6 6-4 in the last 16, was also a well-backed victor over her sister Serena in the last 32.
But Suarez Navarro, who took apart Danielle Collins 6-2 6-4 to progress to the last eight, has fought her way back to somewhere near her best and may well provide a tougher test for the veteran.
Angelique Kerber is flying and Daria Kasatkina is likely to find the German tough to stop.
Kasatkina upended second seed Caroline Wozniacki 6-4 7-5 in the last 16, but Kerber was more impressive in humbling Caroline Garcia for the loss of just two games.
C Suarez Navarro +3.5 games
