Australian Open LIVE Results: Ash Barty seals semifinal spot World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty has continued her stronghold in the Australian Open. She dominated 21st seed Jessica Pegula in a one-sided match to sail into the semifinals. The Australian looked in superb touch as she won the opening set 6-2 and then inflicted more damage to Pegula in the second set with a 6-0 scoreline in the quest for her maiden home slam title.  Follow InsideSport.IN for more updates. 

The Wimbledon champion looked non-stop as she came all guns blazing to continue her stupendous run in Melbourne. She took just an hour and 3 minutes to win the fixture. She will play her second semifinals in less than two years.

Barty is living up to her billing as the favourite as she is enjoying a terrific run in the tournament so far. In all the five matches that she has played, she has clinched straight-set victories.

After fulfilling a childhood dream by winning Wimbledon last year, Barty will now play another American in Madison Keys on Thursday for a spot in the final.

Barty, who is aiming to become the first local since Chris O’Neil in 1978 to win the Australian Open, is yet to drop a set in this tournament and is unbeaten in 2022.

The former French Open champion reeled off the last nine games against Pegula and she was delighted with her form.

“That was solid tonight. I had a lot of fun out here. I was able to serve well and find a lot of forehands in the centre of the court and I was happy to take the game on,” she said.

The Australian believes she is a superior player now to when she was beaten by eventual champion Sofia Kenin in a semi-final in Melbourne in 2020.

“I have grown as a person. I have grown as a player. I feel like I am a more complete player,” she said. “I have a couple of more years of experience under my belt in handling different experiences and problem solving out on the court.

“I think it is a credit to my team. They’ve done so much work with me behind the scenes to make the best version of myself. I’m loving playing out here.”
