Ashleigh Barty vs Camila Giorgi: Preview
Top-seeded Ashleigh Barty advances into the 3rd round of the Australian Open for the 6th consecutive time as she took down qualifier Lucia Bronzetti 6-1, 6-1 in 52 minutes in the second round. She has dropped only 3 games so far in the two rounds and has finished both of her matches in under an hour as she has come all guns blazing this Australian summer having a 6-0 record this season.
Camila Giorgi was made to work hard in the second round but she prevailed in straight-sets to keep her straight-set record intact. The Italian defeated Tereza Martincova 6-2, 7-6(2) in 1 hour and 37 minutes to move into the 3rd round for the 4th time and faces an uphill task to advance into the 4th round of the Australian Open for the first time in her career. Camila is 2-0 this season as she made her season debut at the Grand Slam this week.
Ashleigh Barty vs Camila Giorgi: Head to Head
This will be the 4th meeting between the duo who last met in 2nd round of the 2018 Australian Open. The duo has clashed on all surfaces with Barty winning all 3 clashes and leads the head-to-head tie 3-0.
Ashleigh Barty vs Camila Giorgi: Prediction
Barty will come into the tie with a career hardcourt record of 162-51 and was 21-4 on the surface last season while finishing the 2021 season with a record of 42-8 across all surfaces. Camila will take the court with a career hardcourt record of 134-109 and was 14-9 on the surface last season and had a 26-17 record for the season across all surfaces.
Looking at these numbers and considering their form in the 2021 and the little of the 2022 season, Barty looks the one heading into the second week of the Slam. While Camila did win the WTA-1000 Canadian Open last year, her inconsistency makes her the lesser favourite for this match.
Prediction: Ashleigh Barty to win in straight-sets.
