Defending champion Naomi Osaka didn't make it to a much-anticipated fourth-round contest against top-ranked Ashleigh Barty at the Australian Open.

Amanda Anisimova, a 20-year-old American ranked 60th in the world, ensured that the so-called final-before-the-final wouldn't happen when she beat the four-time major champion 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5) Friday.
