Halep, who won the event in 2015, will meet Iga Swiatek next after a dominating performance that included winning 14 points in a row in the first set.

With Halep serving for the match, Martic offered late resistance to claim her third break point of the day but Halep won out int a lengthy rally to take the tie.
“I think probably [that was my] best match of this year,” Halep said.
“I felt super well. I felt confident. I’ve been aggressive. Everything I had to do I did, and it was pretty good.”
