It was an amazing game for Rogers as she came back from a set down to win the match 6-2 1-6 7-6 (7-5) to book a fourth-round spot. She will meet Britain's Emma Raducanu for a spot in the last eight.

It was all looking like Barty's day when she served for the match at 5-2 in the final set, but it was a great comeback from the American. Rogers had other plans as she saved the set and won four games in a row to have the set in a tie-break.

This is the first time Rogers is defeating Barty in six attempts. She faces 18-year-old Raducanu next.
