Australian Open semifinalist Zheng Jie fought her way into the quarterfinals at Indian Wells Masters on Tuesday, beating Australian Alicia Molik 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (7-1).

The Chinese ace, ranked 23rd in the world, worked with Chan Yung Jan to stun the world number one doubles Cara Black and Liezel Huber 7-6 (5), 6-2 in the doubles quarterfinals.

In the singles, Zheng set up a meeting with Danish second seed Caroline Wozniacki who survived a see-saw battle with Russian veteran Nadia Petrova to win 6-3, 3-6, 6-0.

Fourth-seeded Elena Dementieva of Russia and fifth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland lined up a quarter-final clash with no-nonsense victories over a pair of French opponents.

Dementieva beat Aravane Rezai, 6-3, 6-3 while Radwanska downed Marion Bartoli 6-3, 6-2.

Sixth-seeded Serbian Jelena Jankovic, who struggled mightily in a third-round victory over Sara Errani, turned in a strong performance in a 6-2, 6-2 triumph over Israel's Shahar Peer.
