Desert lover Carla Suarez Navarro could trouble Venus

Williams no certainty to make semis

Carla Suarez Navarro has worked her way back to somewhere near her best
1 of 1

Quarter-finals
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.

Recommendation
C Suarez Navarro +3.5 games
1pt 17-20 Betway
