Gavrilova 6-1 6-1 Falconi
Two more big forehands into the backhand corner, and Falconi has no response. But 1 and 1 doesn't quite tell the story of this match; Gavriolva took her time getting going, and the games were not straightforwardly won. Still, she sails through and will play Elise Mertens next. That will be much more of a test.

Gavrilova 6-1 5-1 Falconi
The home favourite dashes off another game and Falconi will now serve to stay in the match.

Gavrilova 6-1 4-1 Falconi
Falconi is game but just doesn't have the quality to compete over a sustained period. Gavrilova restores her double-break advantage, and is very nearly home.

Gavrilova 6-1 3-1 Falconi
Gavriolva breaks again, but whaddaya know?! Her run of nine on the spin comes to an end when she tamely slices into the net. The comeback is on!

Gavrilova 6-1 2-0 Falconi
Falconi plays a good game, getting to deuce, but three successive big forehands into the backhand corner are too much for her, and that's now eight in a row for Gavrilova.

One-way traffic on Laver now; Gavrilova wins her seventh game in a row to break. Falconi can't compete with her consistency.

Gavrilova 6-1 Falconi
Unbelievable reactions at the net, stop-volleying a backhand drive when the point looked lost, gives her 30-15, and she quickly brings up two set-points. And she only needs one, a high backhand volley eliciting a tame response, sliced wide. That wasn't really a 6-1 set, except for the fact that it was.

Gavrilova 3-1 Falconi
A wild forehand from Falconi drops wide, and Gavrilova has break point, to the excitement of the home crowd. Falconi saves it though but at the end of a nine-minute game, she is a break down.

Gavrilova 2-1 Falconi
Gavrilova is serving well now, and a forehand error from Falconi gives her the game to 30.

Well what about that? Gavrilova goes wide with an inside-out forehand, and the qualifier has a break in the first game!
