Barty marches into next round

Aussie world number one Ash Barty is through to the fourth round at the Australian Open.

Barty cruised to a 6-2, 6-4 victory defeating Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova and will now meet American Shelby Rogers who also had a comfortable straight sets victory on Saturday.

Sporting a heavily bandaged left thigh Barty post-match said it's not effecting her at all.

"We are doing all the right things to make it as good as possible,"

"It's a pretty small tape job that looks a little more dramatic just from wrapping it to try and keep it on. But, no, it's good. Felt like it didn't affect me at all today."
