Home favorite Barty through to fourth round Australian Open


Australian tennis star Ashleigh Barty has reached the last sixteen of the Australian Open without too much trouble. The number 1 in the world, favorite for the overall victory in the grand slam tournament, put Russian Ekaterina Aleksandrova aside in two sets in the third round: 6-2 6-4.

24-year-old Barty reached the semi-finals last year. In it she lost to the American Sofia Kenin, who was already eliminated in the second round in this edition of the tournament in Melbourne.

Barty played in the empty Margaret Court Arena with a firm bandage around her left thigh, but it didn’t seem to bother her. She meets American Shelby Rogers in the fourth round.
