Ash Barty celebrates after hitting a victor.

Ashleigh Barty is embracing the hype after sending her Australian Open hopes soaring with a straight-sets dispatch of the world No.1 Simona Halep to surge into the Sydney International quarter-finals. Halep won last year's French Open and lost to Caroline Wozniacki in the Australian Open final.

"I think it was a great match after nearly four months since I played one full match, the U.S. Open", Halep said.

"I dug myself into a little bit of a hole there, but I just said, "Look mate, be aggressive", Barty said.

Her play improved from there.

"It was a great match after nearly four months (since the last one). In extremely tricky conditions, [I was] very happy with the way I was able to keep it kind of together". "It's pretty swirly, and the ball drops and dives and moves around a little bit", Barty said.

"No pain at all, that is a great sign", she added of her back. "I will recover now, and I will see how I wake up tomorrow morning".

Barty had to save nine of the 11 break points she offered up to Halep's seven, but served five aces to prevail. "I finally learned my lesson", Barty said.
