Ashleigh Barty is still unstoppable. The Australian outplayed Elina Svitolina in straight sets by a double 6-3 and entered a new final of the Miami Masters 1000, in what will be more than a decisive match for the title, as she defends the crown achieved in 2019.
The No. 1 in the world needed an hour and 27 minutes to prevail against a rival who was not up to her level. Thus, there are eleven consecutive victories for Barty in Miami, if the six wins obtained in the 2019 edition are taken into account, the last one that was played.
In addition, it is a revenge-flavored victory for the Australian, because in 2018 Svitolina had beaten him 7-5 and 6-4 in this tournament. In this way, Barty accumulates two consecutive won matches against the 5th of the circuit.
It should be noted that the 24-year-old tennis player, after Naomi Osaka’s defeat in the quarterfinals, I was already assured of continuity as the number one in the world.
This will be his ninth final after having won Roland Garros 2019, his first Grand Slam. The plus? Barty will go in search of his tenth title against the winner of the duel between Bianca Andreescu and Maria Sakkari.
