Ash Barty, Daniil Medvedev on music

Miami, March 31

Aryna Sabalenka clearly laboured in the final set of her match. Frances Tiafoe seemed to barely have the energy needed to reach the post-match handshake. Conditions were tough at the Miami Open.

The top seeds, however, were up to the challenge.

World No. 1 Ash Barty of Australia won the final nine points to finish off the seventh-seeded Sabalenka in a three-set women’s quarterfinal Tuesday, while men’s top-seeded Daniil Medvedev of Russia reached the quarters with a straight-set win over Tiafoe — part of a day where the American men’s contingent was pared from four to one, with Sebastian Korda the lone round-of-16 survivor for the US. Korda stunned fifth-seeded Diego Schwartzman of Argentina 6-3 4-6 7-5

Barty ousted Sabalenka 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-3 for her third three-set win in four matches at the tournament. Medvedev beat Tiafoe 6-4, 6-3, and has gone 10-1 in sets against the American. — AP/PTI
