The eleventh-seeded Williams overcame fellow American Alison Riske 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, while the Romanian seventh seed Halep beat China's Zhang Shuai 7-6, 6-1.

Williams will play either Johanna Konta or Barbora Strycova in the next round, but she will be back on court again today to play mixed doubles with Andy Murray.
