Aussie Ash Barty has steamrolled her way into the third round of Wimbledon after defeating Belgium opponent Alison Van Uytvanck in straight sets.
Barty continued her dominating form defeating her unseeded opponent 6-1, 6-3 to advance to the third round of The Championship.
The 23-year-old will play the winner of British 22-year-old Harriet Dart or Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia in the next round.
Following the dominant performance social media was alight with praise for the world No.1.

Barty’s Wimbledon snub
Ashleigh Barty was dealt yet another Wimbledon snub with her victory over Van Uytvanck on Thursday being shunted to Court Two.
Instead of taking on Belgium's Alison Van Uytvanck on the showpiece Centre or No.1 Court in the afternoon, the French Open champion continued her campaign in the morning round of matches.
The surprising move from the All England Club comes on the back of the Seven Network's controversial decision to leave coverage of the top seed's first-round match against China's Zheng Saisai and focus on the all-Australian battle between Nick Kyrgios and Jordan Thompson on Tuesday.
Wimbledon officials have opted instead to showcase British battler Cameron Norrie's match against Japanese eighth seed Kei Nishkori for the Centre Court curtain-raiser.
