Simona Halep on Saturday took a step further in her quest for her maiden Australian Open title by easing past Danka Kovinic, while second-seed Aryna Sabalenka had to pull off yet another comeback in the third round.

The former world No.1 needed just 64 minutes to earn a dominating 6-2, 6-1 win over the Montenegrin player to continue her strong comeback from a knee injury she sustained in November. EFE
