Alison Riske grounds Lin Zhu 6-3 6-1 in the 2nd round in Melbourne on Wednesday after playing a solid match to square off with Julia Goerges in the 3rd round.

Score, report, and key facts

1st set.

Riske had a strong start of this set after breaking Zhu in the 2nd game (2-0) before consolidating her break and lead 4-0. Yet, there was more work to do for the American to win the set since Zhu found the way to break back in the 5th (1-4) game.

It is worth noting that a pivotal stage of the match was when Riske won 4 consecutive games in the 1st set to change the scoreline from 0-0 to 4-0.

2nd set.

The American won the set after she broke the Chinese 3 times in the 3rd (2-1), in the 5th (4-1) and in the 7th (6-1) game. That break was sufficient for Alison to conquer the set as she didn’t concede her serve during the rest of the set.

The Chinese was unable to find the solution against the opposition in the last 6 games of the set (from 0-1 to 6-1).
