Mertens ousts Svitolina in Australian Open quarters

Melbourne: Belgian woman tennis player Elise Mertens on Tuesday stunned fourth seed Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 6-4, 6-0 to reach the Australian Open semi-finals.
The 22-year-old took just one hour and 13 minutes to keep her dream alive at her maiden Australian Open, the season's first Grand Slam event, reports Efe.
"I have no words, I don't know what to say," Mertens said. "I have so many mixed emotions. I gave it all today, I fought. I got a little stress at the end so I played my game and it went well today."
Mertens hit 26 winners and broke Svitolina's serve five times out of nine on her way to the convincing straight sets victory.
