Ashleigh Barty vs Amanda Anisimova: Match Preview
Ashleigh Barty made light work of Italian Camila Giorgi in a 6-2,6-3 victory in the third round on Friday. The Australian looks in ominous form after cruising through the first three rounds as the World No.1 looks to win her first Grand Slam title at home soil. The 25 year old is coming off after a solid 2021 campaign where she won 5 titles, including the Wimbledon, which was her second Grand Slam title after the 2019 French Open. She has already won her first title of the new season after cruising through on her way to clinch the WTA Adelaide International to open her season.
Meanwhile, Amanda Anisimova caused a huge upset in the third round, as the American knocked out defending champion and 4th seed Naomi Osaka over 3 sets. The final scoreline came to be at 4-6,6-3,7-6(10-5). Despite Osaka not looking at her best and making far too many unforced errors, Anisimova put out a confident display and capitalized on the Japanese’s sloppiness to cause a shock upset. The 20 year old looks to be back to her best and among the best youngsters in the women’s game after a difficult 2021 season.
Ashleigh Barty vs Amanda Anisimova: Head to Head
Ashleigh Barty and Amanda Anisimova have met each other once before, with the Aussie superstar coming out on top in that occasion, and this having a 1-0 head-to-head advantage. Their only meeting came at the Roland Garros way back in 2019, where Barty fought to clinch a hard-fought 3 set victory.
Ashleigh Barty vs Amanda Anisimova: Match Predictions
Despite Amanda Anisimova’s incredible win over Osaka, Ashleigh Barty would remain the firm favorite here, as the Aussie looks in amazing form and is one of the favourites to win the whole tournament. Barty would also have the backing of the home-crowd, who’d definitely be rooting hard for their very own superstar. However, Anisimova has shown that on her day she could dominate any opposition and would look to give a tough fight to Barty.
Match Prediction- Barty to win in straight sets.
