Eugenie Bouchard advances in straight sets at Indian Wells

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) Eugenie Bouchard defeated CoCo Vandeweghe 6-3, 6-2 Monday to reach the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Open.

The sixth-seeded Canadian faced a break point on her serve in the last game before hitting a forehand winner on her second match point. Vandeweghe had 24 unforced errors in the third-round match, the farthest the American has gotten at Indian Wells in four tries.

Bouchard had plenty of support in the crowd from the many Canadians who spend the winter in the desert. They waved red-and-white Maple Leaf flags in what seemed like a home match for Bouchard.

Top-ranked Novak Djokovic plays a late match, and Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka meet in an evening match between former No. 1 players.
