Ashleigh Barty goes into the fourth round at the Australian Open for the first time in her career after her victory over Maria Sakkari.
Barty, No.15, was tested by the Greek champion but managed to win with a score of: 7-5, 6-1 in one hour and 20 minutes.
After this game, Sakkari finished Sakkari’s journey, which failed to surpass her record and reached the fourth round of the Australian Open. “It was a bad day for me and a good day for Ashleigh,” said Maria, who spoke with the best words about Barty, with whom she has friendly relations.
“I feel great,” said Barty at the press conference after the fight. “You must constantly give yourself the opportunity to try and develop. You have to set high goals. I have come to the point now that I feel more and more comfortable at the court and I can play good tennis. ”
Barty is now called to face Maria Sharapova in a difficult game.
