Dominika Cibulkova followed up her victory over Maria Sharapova by crushing Simona Halep to reach the semi-finals of the Australian Open.
Romanian Halep never found her rhythm and world number 24 Cibulkova took just an hour to triumph 6-3 6-0 on Rod Laver Arena.
The 24-year-old Slovakian's only previous grand slam semi-final came at the French Open in 2009 and she has never made a final.
