Gavrilova out of Sydney International

In-form sixth seed Johanna Konta has knocked Australian No.2 Daria Gavrilova out of the Sydney International 6-1 6-3.

The last Australian in the women's draw had no answers on Tuesday to Konta, whose 29 winners more than doubled those of Gavrilova on Ken Rosewell Arena.

The 22-year-old, who reached the round of 16 at the Australian Open last year, heads to Melbourne with two wins from her five matches in Hobart and Sydney.
