CINCINNATI – Top seed Ash Barty rallied from a set down to power into the semi-finals of the Cincinnati Masters on Friday.
The Australian world number two turned dominant after losing the opening set, rushing to a 5-7 6-2 6-0 victory over Greek Maria Sakkari.
Barty will face either Czech Karolina Pliskova or Russia’s Svetlana Kuznetsova in the semi-finals.
The Australian surged to a 4-1 advantage in the first set and appeared on her way to an easy triumph.
But Sakkari had other ideas.
