Ashleigh Barty – Petra Kvitova Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 22:00

Collins beat Kerber comfortably last round. Eric:This is a difficult match to predict as both players have been under the radar for most of the tournament. However, we have seen time and time again, that when an underdog beats a heavy favorite, they always tend to underperform the following match.

Last year, she won the WTA Nottingham and the Elite Trophy in Zhuhai. Needless to mention, she has a bright future ahead of her and can very well break into the top 10 by the end of this week. Barty has done exceptionally well as a doubles player and now, she is turning a lot of heads on the singles circuit too. She was also a semifinalist in Wuhan and Montreal.

Sharapova had previously been one of the tougher players to beat going into deciders but has lost that edge in recent times. Was doing all the right things but very happy to come through in the end. she said. I gave myself opportunities to go 5-love and I think 5-2, as well. A vital hold for 5-3 from 15-40 was the difference maker for Barty, who eventually closed out the match in her next service game for the win. Barty bounced back from losing the first set by taking 10 of the next 11 games before Sharapova made one final attempt at a comeback. Just couldnt execute. Barty had to work much harder for her spot in the last 8, taking the match to Maria Sharapova and eventually winning 4-6 6-1 6-4.

Her career stuttered for a while but she may be able to erase those memories with the draw lining up well for her. Should she beat Barty, she would be heavily favoured to beat either opponent and make the final. In 2012, Kvitova was riding the wave of her Wimbledon title and looked a future No.1 before losing a dramatic semi final to Maria Sharapova here.

Barty has also made her breakthrough and has done well to reach this far. Jay:Knowing that Kvitova usually plays really leading up to Slams before losing in the first couple of rounds, I was expecting her to lose very early on, but she is still going strong and is probably the favorite to win the title.

Barty will fight with the crowd behind her, but this is Kvitovas match to lose. The Czech looks to be on top of her game, and seems finally ready to reach her first Slam semifinal since her tragic injury in a home invasion over two years ago. Yesh:Barty has surprised us before, but everyone here is picking Kvitova for a reason.

Ashleigh Barty won all of her service games and 3 return games to secure the win. During the win, Ashleigh Barty served exceptionally well as she hit 6 aces which helped her win 72% of her service points. Ashleigh Barty enters this match having won her previous outing in 3 sets. It was a close match for Barty as she lost the second set but the Australian showed her class to win the final set 6-2. It has been a strong few weeks for Ashleigh Barty as she recently made the semifinals of the Wuhan Open.

The Australian has not put a foot wrong, but Kvitova is on another level this week and her record in finals is excellent. Barty is on a 7-match winning streak at the moment which is the longest she has had in her career. I am not writing off Bartys chances completely. I think it would take a massive drop in performance for Kvitova to allow the Australian a look in. Both these two players deserve their places in the final. She has won 25 out of the last 32 finals so far, including her last seven. The ball striking from both wings was incredible. I feel for Barty because it could be back-to-back losses in the finals in Sydney. Kvitova shrugged off the disappointment of losing in Brisbane with a streak of her own Sydney. I think if Kvitova plays near the level we saw from her against Sasnovich, she will win this at a canter. She is yet to concede a set and considering the quality of opposition she faced, it is an impressive achievement.

Her best result of the current season was winning the title in Miami where she beat Karolina Pliskova in the final 7-6(1) 6-3 and in Paris where she defeated Marketa Vondrousova in the final 6-1 6-3 and in Birmingham where she defeated Julia Goerges in the final 6-3 7-5. The Australian has a 44-9 win-loss record in 2019, 25-6 on hard (See FULL STATS).

They have played once this year in Sydney, where Kvitova came from a set down to win a close one in the final. The top half contains multiple former No.1s while it is between Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Danielle Collins, Ashleigh Barty and Petra Kvitovain the other half. Theres a big opportunity for someone in the bottom half of the Australian Open draw to make the final now.
