In the second set, Keys put up a little more resistance and Barty was only able to break in the seventh game.

That left her needing just two more games to progress to the semi-finals, but Keys broke her opponent for the first time in the match to level at 5-5.

Barty was in just her second Grand slam quarter-final, which may have explained her struggle to close out the match.

However, the eighth seed broke back to establish a 6-5 lead, and she regained her composure to hold her serve and claim victory.
