MELBOURNE (Reuters) – World No. 1 Ash Barty’s attempt to become the first local Australian Open champion since 1978 ended in a 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 quarter-final loss against Karolina Muchova on Tuesday. The 25th Czech seeded bounced back after a long time out of a doctor in the second set to secure a spot in her first Grand Slam semifinal, where she will meet the winner of the subsequent clash between Americans Jennifer Brady and Jessica Pegula.
