Collins topped No.2 seed Ons Jabeur 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 to begin the day on Thursday before kicking off the night session with a 6-2, 6-2 cruise past fellow American Sloane Stephens.

“I should be able to take this and use it as confidence moving forward,” said Collins.

Daria Kasatkina, seeded fourth, will face unseeded Jaqueline Cristian after the Romanian took out 10th-seeded American Emma Navarro, while resurgent Maria Sakkari will face 2021 champion Veronika Kudermetova.
