Ash Barty is through to the second week of Wimbledon for the first time in her career after a straight sets win.
Making her Wimbledon Centre Court debut in singles, Barty took just 53 minutes to find a 6-1 6-1 victory over British wildcard Harriet Dart to reach the fourth round.
It was a fast-paced match from the world No.1, who showed her full repertoire of shots from aces to backhand winners and forehand winners to drop-shots.
“It’s always nice to have quick matches. I think it’s nice to know that I can go in and execute and get my job done,” Barty said.
“In saying that, as well, a lot of my matches haven’t been as easy as the scoreline suggests. I think there have been some really tricky moments."
Barty broke in just the second game of the first set before extending her lead to 4-0. Dart got on the board at 1-5 but after Barty hit two aces in the following game, she took the opener in 25 minutes.
The second set almost mirror of the first.
While the Australian did face a little speedbump in the sixth game, where she found herself trailing 0-40, the 23-year-old was able to find her way out by winning four straight points.
Barty will now face Alison Riske on Monday after the American saw off No.13 seed Belinda Bencic in a three-set thriller.
While the Ipswich-born star isn't looking ahead to potential clashes, a win on Monday could set up a quarter-finals match against seven-time Wimbledon winner Serena Williams.
