Naomi Osaka dominated Elina Svitolina to win in straight sets and reach the Australian Open semi-finals.

Osaka, 21, hit 31 winners and took advantage of the second serve of the Ukrainian, who received treatment on her shoulder in the second set.

The fourth seed will face either Serena Williams or Karolina Pliskova in the last four on Thursday.
