IPSWICH teen Ashleigh Barty claimed the biggest scalp of her fledgling career with a 6-0 6-3 demolition of 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone at the Hopman Cup.

Barty's win, achieved in just 55 minutes, gave Australia an unassailable 2-0 lead over Italy after Bernard Tomic beat world No.23 Andreas Seppi 6-3 7-5 in the men's singles rubber.

Australia will reach Saturday night's final if Germany upsets Serbia's top-seeded pairing of Novak Djokovic and Ana Ivanovic tomorrow.
