Barty books all-Aussie semifinal against Gavrilova, clears Strycova in Sydney

Barty books all-Aussie semifinal against Gavrilova, clears Strycova in Sydney

Barty, who has also played professional cricket, was not at her best in blustery conditions however she did just enough to edge her compatriot and was please with the composure she showed under the circumstances.

The German will meet Italian qualifier and world No.100 Camila Giorgi, who upset Poland's former world No.2 Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 6-2.

"This start is not bad for 2018, for sure".

Angelique Kerber of Germany hits a return against Dominika Cibulkov√° of Slovakia in their women's singles quarterfinals match at the Sydney International tennis tournament in Sydney on Thursday. For me, it was nice to find the rhythm eventually but would definitely like to see it a little bit earlier in matches.

Having enjoyed a breakthrough 2016 with victories at the Australian Open and US Open, Kerber endured a hugely disappointing 2017.

"Now that I am No.3 ... the first and foremost thing that I am thinking about and feel like I am capable of doing, regardless of whatever anyone else says".

"I've had a great off-season and I'm working hard".

"We have set up a flawless platform for me to work with this year to try and go deep in tournaments, whether it's in Australia or in Europe or in the States".

The other semi-final in Sydney will be an all-Australian affair between Ashleigh Barty and Daria Gavrilova, the former Australian compatriot whose record now stands at 12-1 against fellow Aussies since she took residency Down Under in 2013.

"For us, it's ideal".

"More than anything, I know what I can do and what I am capable of and how I can play".

Defending champion Gilles Muller was knocked out of the Sydney International men's event by unseeded Frenchman Benoit Paire 6-4, 6-4.

The 84th-ranked Medvedev came back from a set down to move within one win of what would be his maiden ATP title against rising Australian star Alex de Minaur.

Italian fourth seed Fabio Fognini set up a semi-final against qualifier Daniil Medvedev following a 7-6 (7-4), 6-7 (7-4), 6-2 marathon against Frenchman Adrian Mannarino.
