Estonia’s Anett Kontaveit is riding the hot hand in Monterrey. The 20-year-old rifled through No. 1 seed Sara Errani, breaking six times on eleven opportunities to claim the biggest win of her career, 6-1, 6-3 on Thursday at the Abierto Monterrey Afirme.

Kontaveit, who knocked off last week’s Acapulco runner-up Dominika Cibulkova in the first round, will face American qualifier Nicole Gibbs in the quarterfinals.

“I am very happy,” Kontaveit said. “I tried to be very aggressive with my game and move forward as much as possible.”

Kontaveit won 60 percent of Errani’s first serve points and saved four of six points in earning her first career top-20 win.

Second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki cruised into the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Mirjana Lucic-Baroni. The world No. 22 broke four times on five opportunities to reach her third quarterfinal of the year. She will face Great Britain's Heather Watson in the last eight.

Fifth-seeded Carolina Garcia, was also a winner. She rolled past qualifier Julia Glushko, 6-1, 6-2, to set up an encounter with compatriot Pauline Parmentier in the quarterfinals.
