MELBOURNE (Reuters) – World No. 1 Ash Barty overcame an awkward start to reach the Australian Open fourth round with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Ekaterina Alexandrova in an empty Margaret Court Arena on Saturday. The seeded Australian was broken in her first service game, but quickly rallied to take the opening set when the Russian hit the ball into the net on her 16th unforced error. Showing no signs of being hampered by her tightly bound left thigh, Barty struggled after breaking again in the second set and secured the victory with a fifth and final service break. The 2019 French Open champion, who is looking to become the first Australian Open singles champion since 1978, will play American Shelby Rogers (NYSE 🙂 for a place in the quarterfinals.
