American teenager Coco Gauff stunned defending champion Naomi Osaka in straight sets to reach the fourth round of the Australian Open.

The 15-year-old excelled at the Rod Laver Arena and eased to a 6-3 6-4 victory in 67 minutes

Osaka, the world number four, struggled with unforced errors throughout – making 30 compared to Gauff's 17.

“I don’t know where that came from,” the American said after the match. “Honestly, like, what is my life?”

“Two years ago I lost in the first round in juniors and now I’m here,” Gauff added.

“I was telling myself one point at a time and keep fighting. You never know what happens on this court.”

Gauff will play fellow American Sofia Kenin in the fourth round after the 21-year-old beat China’s Shuai Zhang 7-5 7-6. (BBC)
