(Reuters) – Belinda Bencic slayed another giant by outlasting world number five Karolina Pliskova 6-3 4-6 6-3 on Thursday to reach the BNP Paribas Open semi-finals in Indian Wells.

The 22-year-old Swiss, who crushed world number one and defending champion Naomi Osaka on Tuesday, fired a serve out wide that Pliskova could not return on match point to seal the win under sunny skies in the Southern California desert.
