Danish teenager Clara Tauson is one to watch in the third round of the Australian Open after she beat sixth seed Anett Kontaveit 6-2 6-4 in under 80 minutes on Thursday.

“I felt so good out here,” the world no. 39 said after her win.

“I heard a lot of people cheering for me… that just gave me so much confidence and I played a very good match.

“It’s the first time I’m in the third round of a slam [and] playing a player like her to reach it, it’s a really big achievement for me.

“I felt really comfortable on court… just went for everything and it worked today. My weapons were obviously working very well.”

The young Dane’s third-round opponent will be Danielle Collins, who defeated Croat Ana Konjuh 6-4 6-3.
