A thoroughly professional display from the world No.1 Ash Barty, as she cruises into the fourth round with a commanding win over Camila Giorgi in just over an hour
It finishes 6-2 6-3 to the hometown hero, who it must be said, is looking in absolutely sensational form.
“In the nicest possible manner, she’s taunted Giorgi. (She’s said), ‘Here, have this one, hit it, let’s see what you’ve got’,” said Sam Smith on Nine’s coverage.
“By doing that, she’s done her job perfectly,” Jim Courier added. “That’s the way to beat Camila Giorgi if you’re Ash Barty, let her beat herself.”
“This is as good as she’s ever looked,” Jelena Dokic adds. “She takes the match out of everyone’s hands. She deals with opponents, expectation, she deals with it all so well.”
