Canada's Leylah Fernandez has been eliminated from the BNP Paribas Open.

The 19-year-old from Laval, Que., lost 6-4, 6-4 to defending champion Paula Badosa of Spain in Tuesday night's round of 16 in Indian Wells, Calif.

Fernandez arrived at Indian Wells on the heels of a victory at the Monterrey Open a week earlier, the second WTA title of her career.

Badosa drew first blood in the opening set when she broke for a 4-3 lead and although Fernandez hit back with a break, the Spaniard raised her level to take the early advantage in the contest.

After a sluggish start to the second set, she held serve in a five-deuce game to go up 5-3 before closing out the victory.

Badosa has not dropped a set at the WTA 1000 tournament in the Southern California desert, as she looks to secure only the fourth title of her career. She will next face either Veronika Kudermetova or Marketa Vondrousova.

Badosa beat Victoria Azarenka in a three-hour final to win the 2021 BNP Paribas Open. She is seeking to become the first woman to defend the Indian Wells title in over three decades
