The youngest player in the draw said she wouldn't mind being a teenage Grand Slam victor like one of the players she most looks up to, Maria Sharapova. "She's a really tough opponent, so I was just really preparing myself for a really tough match", she said.

Sharapova is seeded only 30th at Melbourne Park, where she won the 2008 title for one of her five Grand Slam trophies but hasn't been past the quarterfinals since 2015.

Barty, seeded 15, saw off the unseeded Sakkari 7-5, 6-1 in 82 minutes to reach the last 16, her best performance at Melbourne Park after third round appearances in 2018 and 2017. I think I have never had that much fun in a match before, and the crowd was just wonderful, supporting me all the time. But Sharapova finally gained the upper hand with a break for a 4-3 lead, clinched with that big forehand she was so excited about.
