Gauff has not dropped a set in Melbourne so far and has only lost nine games in three matches.

Gauff, who reached the semifinals of the US Open and the quarterfinals of the French Open last year, showed her confidence and maturity on the court as she dominated Parks from the start. Parks, who is ranked 127th in the world, had no answer to Gauff’s powerful serve, groundstrokes, and net play. Gauff broke Parks six times and won 80% of her first serve points and 71% of her second serve points. She also had 18 winners and only nine unforced errors, while Parks had 11 winners and 25 unforced errors.
