Ashleigh Barty is coming into the Volvo Car Open 2021 on the back of an impressive outing at the Miami Open 2021. The Australian lifted her first title of the season, as she defeated Bianca Andreescu in the finals on Saturday. This will be a huge confidence booster for the 24-year old as she now shifts her attention to clay courts. The surface is well-suited to Barty’s style of play, as she had managed to win the French Open title in 2019.

Misaki Doi defeated Yaroslava Shvedova in straight sets in round one of the Charleston Open 2021. The Japanese dropped just six games in the whole match and was on top of her game. Doi last competed at the Miami Open 2021, but was knocked out from the first qualifying round itself.

Ashleigh Barty vs Misaki Doi: Match Prediction

Ashleigh Barty is the certain favorite to win the second round encounter and progress further in the tournament. The Australian was in top form at the Miami Open 2021 and will be brimming with confidence. She is one of the top title contenders this week in Charleston. However, expect her to start a bit slowly in her match against Misaki Doi, given that she will be a bit exhausted after her Miami Open 2021 run, and she might take time to get accustomed to the clay courts.

Match Prediction: Ashleigh Barty to win in three sets
