The American world number one lost the first set 6-1 to the Belgian but rallied to take the next two 7-5 6-3.
She was joined in the last eight by 15-year-old Bulgarian prodigy Sesil Karatantcheva.
The product of the Nick Bollettieri academy in Florida, who has already seen off Venus Williams in Paris, beat Switzerland’s Emmanuelle Gagliardi 7-5 6-3.
