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

Collins run is a massive surprise as she looked down and out against Goerges when the German was serving for the match against her, and Pavlyuchenkova has also beaten some high quality opponents in Bertens, Sasnovich, and Stephens. Jay:This is a very unexpected matchup, between two players no one thought would reach this far.

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.

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.

Tracey:The hometown favorite stormed back to beat Maria Sharapova in three sets. No doubt a great performance, but Bartys win was definitely aided by Sharapovas ten double faults and abundant unforced errors.

Kvitova vs Barty recommended bet

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.

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.

The first time it happened was in Birmingham in 2017, when Kvitova won her first title post-surgery in three sets. The Czech has been impeccable this week. Petra Kvitova is a former champion in Sydney (won in 2015), while Ashleigh Barty finished runner-up last year. This will be the second time that these two women meet with the title on the line. She is yet to drop a set, and her dominant display in the semifinals was a further reminder that she should perhaps be taken very seriously in Melbourne.

Ashleigh Barty is coming off a three sets win over Maria Sharapova that took 27 games to decide. However, Barty has a combined 65 unforced errors in her last two matches, something she must clean up. Barty has a chance to make her first career grand slam semifinal. It wasnt the prettiest performance from Barty and her chances looked slim after dropping the first set, but she got help from the home crowd and stormed back the biggest win of her young career. Barty won 65 percent of her total service points and produced four breaks on 10 break points. Barty hasnt won five matches in a single tournament since winning the Nottingham Open back in June.
