The 12th-seeded Australian sealed the match with an ace to storm past 21st-seeded Annett Kontaveit of Estonia 6-3, 6-3, after their clash was delayed twice by rain on Thursday, local time.

Barty, who entered the world’s top 10 for the first time when she reached the final four of the WTA Premier event, advances to a showdown with Simona Halep or Karolina Pliskova.
