Marta Kostyuk became the youngest player to reach the third round of any Grand Slam after she defeated home-girl Olivia Rogowska at the Australian Open.
The 15-year old Ukrainian who shares the same coach with Roger Federer, won in straight sets, 6-3 7-5.
Kostyuk is the youngest player to reach this stage of a Grand Slam since Mirjana Lucic-Baroni in the 1997 US Open and the youngest in the last 32 at Melbourne since Martina Hingis in 1996.
Kostyuk’s reward will be a date with compatriot Elina Svitolina in the last 32.
