  • Ashleigh Barty caused a massive upset at the Sydney International

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.

Earlier, two-time major champion Garbine Muguruza was left with no option but to give her opponent Kiki Bertens a walkover before her second round match. 'The biggest thing, I believed that I could I win. We're both out here on the same court.

"I was very happy I was able to make the most of it".

The 27-year-old Halep will be at the Australian Open next week in Melbourne without a coach after parting ways with Australian mentor Darren Cahill, who can longer commit to Halep due to family reasons.

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

She will face either Belgian 10th seed Elise Mertens or Estonia's Anett Kontaveit in the next round. In the second round, Timea Bacsinszky defeated Samantha Stosur 5-7, 6-4, 6-3.

Veteran Italian Andreas Seppi is also through to meet top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece, while fifth seeded Alex De Minaur set up an all-Australian last eight tie with Jordan Thompson.

Highlighting the win was the fact Barty had failed to take a set off Halep in their two previous meetings.
