Ash Barty is out of the Australian Open after losing to Sofia Kenin in straight sets.

Barty never looked herself as the pair did battle in sweltering conditions. The world No. 1 has said previously she enjoys playing with the sun on her back but this was extreme as the temperature soared to 40C, suspending play on outside courts at Melbourne Park. Barty consolidated an early break in the second set to go up 3-1 and started pulling out her favourite shot – the slice backhand – more regularly and to great effect.

"Ding, ding, ding. We have a winning strategy. The slice backhand I think is perfect for Barty," Channel 9's Jim Courier said in commentary. Barty looked assured for much of the second set but when serving at 5-4 to take the match into a third, she suffered some hiccups. An unforced error from Kenin saw the Aussie save a break point but the American took her next chance to break when a bad miss from Barty made it 5-5.
