Halep's coach, Darren Cahill, tweeted during a conversation with former world number one Chris Evert that returning female tennis players "should not be penalised for giving birth by starting from zero".
Kasatkina hit one ace, won 54 percent of her first serves and broke Wozniacki's serve six times in the one hour, 40 minute match.
Williams, who has yet to drop a set, will face either Carla Suarez Navarro or Danielle Collins in the last eight.

The writing was on the wall for Wang when she also lost the first three games of set two. She was the last Chinese singles player standing in the California desert.
