Kostyuk continues her historic run
Ukrainian 15-year-old Marta Kostyuk is through to the third round of the Australian Open, the youngest player since Martina Hingis to achieve that feat.
The qualier beat Australia’s Olivia Rogowska 6-3, 7-5 to book her place in round three in Melbourne.
Kostyuk had to come through the qualiers before getting the better of 25th Peng Shuai 6-2, 6-2 in the opening round.
Her run continued on Wednesday with a 6-3, 7-5 win over Rogowska.
Kostyuk is ranked 522nd in the world and is the youngest player since Hingis to make it through to round three.
Marta Kostyuk closes it out with some humor. Shanks a serve on 1st MP & motions to challenge it. Eventually converts to win 63 75.
– Youngest in 3R at a Slam since 1997 (Lucic-Baroni, USO)
– Youngest in 3R at #AusOpen since 1996 (Hingis)
