Barty will come into the tie with a career hardcourt record of 161-51 and was 21-4 on the surface last season while finishing the 2021 season with a record of 42-8 across all surfaces. Bronzetti will take the court with a career hardcourt record of 52-19 and was 14-4 on the surface last season and had a 53-23 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 should move into the next round with ease. While Lucia’s round 1 win will surely boost her confidence to put up a fight, the brilliance of Barty might prove enough to take the Australian in the 3rd round.

Prediction: Ashleigh Barty to win in straight-sets.
