The British number one, who overcame American Bernarda Pera in the first round, was in impressive form once again as she swept aside Spain's Suarez Navarro to move into the last-16.

Konta, seeded 10th for the tournament, broke her opponents serve three times en route to a comfortable 6-2 6-2 victory and now faces a difficult match against German Angelique Kerber.

The 26-year-old has won one of the three meetings against Kerber although that victory did come in their previous encounter, a quarter-final triumph at Eastbourne last year.

Elsewhere, Australian Open champion and world number one Caroline Wozniacki safely moved into the last-16 after thrashing Germany's Carina Witthoft 6-2 6-0 in Doha.

Romanian Simona Halep, who lost in the final Down Under, eased past Russian Ekaterina Makarova 6-3 6-0 whilst Petra Kvitova overcame Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska 6-7 6-3 6-4.
