Sharapova, who hasn't dropped a set throughout the tournament, quickly established a lead in the opener, and although Diyas secured a break of her own, it wasn't enough to prevent the Russian from moving ahead.

Two more breaks of serve for Sharapova proved decisive in the second as he secured victory over the world number 34 in 97 minutes.

Sharapova will now play Coco Vandeweghe, who upset sixth seed Lucie Safarova earlier on Monday.
