German 32-year-old Kerber, a three-time major champion, lost the first set in just 22 minutes and won only 35% points on her second serve throughout.

American Jennifer Brady faces Yulia Putintseva, who beat eighth seed Petra Martic 6-3 2-6 6-4.

Kazakhstan’s Putintseva, the 23rd seed, led 5-0 in the first set and 5-1 in the decider but was able to hold off attempted comebacks from Martic both times.

Brady, who received treatment for a leg injury in the second set, said: “It feels great, I’m so happy. I played a spectacular first set.”

Although Kerber became more competitive as the match progressed, the American held her nerve and sealed victory when the 17th seed sent a return long.

Czech sixth seed Petra Kvitova failed to convert four match points as she was dumped out of the competition by American Shelby Rogers 7-6 (7-5) 3-6 7-6 (8-6).
