After successive first-round exits, top-seeded Simona Halep is going deep into the draw at this year's Australian Open, advancing to the quarterfinals by beating Naomi Osaka 6-3, 6-2.

Halep, who could lose her No. 1 ranking if she doesn't win the title here, extended her record of not having lost a fourth-round match on hard courts at a Grand Slam since the 2013 U.S. Open — she's 10-2 in round-of-16 matches.
