Watson broke her opponent’s serve six times, but still needed four match points to end Arvidsson’s resistance and seal a 7-5 6-3 victory in a match lasting an hour and 35 minutes. The 19-year-old from Guernsey will play third seed Tamira Paszek in the last eight after the Austrian battled past Varvara Lepchenko in three sets. Paszek lost the opening set on a tie-break but hit back to win 6-7 (2/7) 6-3 7-6 (7/4).

Elsewhere on Wednesday, fourth seed Rebecca Marino got the better of fellow Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak 6-4 4-6 6-4, while Holland’s Michaella Krajicek beat France’s Julie Coin 7-5 4-6 6-1.
