Sloane Stephens' loudest fan kept shouting advice and encouragement from the stadium stands Monday, perhaps providing the nudge she needed to shake a post-U.S. Open slump.

Stephens earned her biggest victory since winning last year's Open, beating No. 3-ranked Garbine Muguruza 6-3, 6-4 Monday to reach the quarterfinals at the Miami Open.

"Close the door, Sloane!" the spectator hollered near the end, and she did. During a post-match on-court interview, Stephens thanked the fan, who has been to her past two matches.

Muguruza exits on day of upsets at China Open

Garbine Muguruza fell at the first hurdle at the China Open on Monday, with the Spaniard forced to retire due to illness during her first-round match against Czech Barbora Strycova.

The Wimbledon champion looked sluggish throughout and was broken in the first game before losing the first set 6-1. She was trailing 2-0 in the second when she decided she could not continue.

"I got a virus in Wuhan and I did not practice in Beijing. I thought an extra day's rest would help, and didn't want to pull out," Muguruza said. "But I couldn't perform today."

American qualifier Christina McHale served up another shock when she beat Sloane Stephens 6-3 6-0 to send the U.S. Open champion crashing out in the first round of a tournament for the second week in a row.
