The 19 year-old broke serve in the first game and allowed Frech to win just 10 more points in a little less than half an hour. The American’s composure was superb as she broke two serves in the second set and confidently breezed through without facing a break point.

The reigning US Open champion will face Kostyuk as the world 37 ranked did beat Russian Maria Timofeeva 6-2 6-1 to set up the challenge.

The defending champion of the Australian Open Aryna Sabalenka is through to the last eight after she outshine Amanda Anisimova 6-3 6-2 and yet to drop a set at the Grand Slam. The Belarussian increasing momentum could see both Coco Gauff and Aryna clash in the final with hope of avenge to the American following the 19 year-old defeating her in the final of the US Open.

With the quest for the title still open Aryna Sabalenka, 25 will face either 16 year –old Russian Minna Andreeva or Czech’s ninth seed Barbora Krejcikov and Coco Gauff will face Ukrainian’s Marta Kostyuk.

Meanwhile Coco Gauff who has continued her maturity with confident tennis felt no nervousness considering the aura of 85 year old Rod Laver.

‘’Luckily I was a lot when I noticed he came in,’’ the 19 year=old joked while appreciating the presence of Laver at the court in Mlelbourne.
