Unseeded Muguruza hammers Svitolina

Former world number one Garbine Muguruza, now unseeded, hammered fifth seed Elina Svitolina 6-1, 6-2 to reach the fourth round of the Australian Open on Saturday.

Muguruza, a quarter-finalist at Melbourne in 2017, has struggled in the past couple of years and entered this year's tournament unseeded despite being a two-time Grand Slam champion.

She was bageled by Shelby Rogers in her very first set of the tournament but now finds herself into the fourth round for just the fourth time in her career.

While Svitolina had been solid so far up until this point she had absolutely no answer to Muguruza's astonishing performance, with the Spaniard hitting 31 winners to Svitolina's 12.

She wrapped up victory in emphatic style and will now face the winner of the match between Kiki Bertens and Zarina Diyas.

???The first day I didn't feel well at all, but I never throw in the towel," Muguruza said afterwards.

???I'm in the fourth round because of a big fight.

???Everything went quickly my way ?? yeah, I'll take it,

???I played a very good match. I managed to probably disturb her, and take the match to my side."
