Fognini, Keys, Wozniacki Shine on Saturday Afternoon

INDIAN WELLS, Calif -- Fabio Fognini is through to the third round of the BNP Paribas Open after his three-set win over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. In women's matches, Caroline Woznieacki and Madison Keys punched their tickets to the third round.

Keys, who has been sidelined for months due to wrist issues, made a strong comeback as she defeated Mariana Duque-Marino in straight sets 6-1, 7-5.

"It felt good," said Keys during her post-match presser. "You know, I really, really missed competing and being able to go out there and get a win on top of it was amazing."

After being out for a while, the American had to adjust to the conditions.

"It felt -- it would feel like there was a couple of points where it's like, okay, and I was, like, oh, that was rusty. So, yeah, I think just kind of finding that rhythm and that groove again is coming back slowly, but, you know, I think I'm kind of figuring it out."

Keys next faces teenager Naomi Osaka, who defeated Shuai Zhang 6-4, 6-2.

Wozniacki beat Magda Linett 6-3, 6-0. The 13th seed is having a great 2016.

"Yeah, I'm playing well right now," acknowledged Wozniacki. "I have had a good start to the year. I played well in the Middle East. Obviously that took a lot out of me. The weather kind of played games with us a little bit.

"But it's nice to feel like I'm hitting the ball this well, and hopefully I can just continue in this U.S. hard court swing."

Wozniacki will play Katerina Siniakova, who beat Carla Carla Suarez Navarro 6-3, 7-5.

Fognini came back after losing the second set to take the match 7-6(4), 3-6, 6-4.
