World Number One Barty lines up a title shot

Australia’s Ashleigh Barty has found the early season form that she would have wanted. She will have the big home support at Melbourne Park at the Australian Open of course, and heading there with a title in the bag would be fantastic for her, although it would increase the pressure of expectations.

Barty had a big battle against the in-form Danielle Collins in the semi-finals of this WTA Adelaide event. That went to a decider after Barty had heavily dropped the opening set. Two of her three matches at the tournament have now gone to a deciding set, Barty having to fight back in both of them. So that may just be worth tipping this Final to go to three sets.

Young Ukranian delivers more promise

Youngster Dayana Yastremska, one of the best young stars on the WTA Tour, has shown what she is capable of. Regardless of the outcome of this Final in Adelaide, she will go to the Australian Open as a big dark horse for the event. After beating Timea Babos in the first round, Yastremnka then took out 9th seed Angelique Kerber.

Ashleigh Barty 2-1 Correct Score


She never let Kerber get a whiff of a chance in that one, taking the first set easily and going up in the second before Kerber retired injured.

Yastrama then took out Donna Vekic easily in the quarters. That lined her up against Aryna Sabalenka, another of the rising stars of the game at the semi final stage. Yastremnska settled the issues against the heavy-hitting Belarusian in straight sets.

Ashleigh Barty v Dayana Yastremska Prediction and tip

We would easily lean over 2.5 sets for the Final at 5/4 odds and that’s because even though Yastremska is the underdog against the World Number One, she is in some cracking form at the moment and can easily take a set* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 17th, 2020 at 11:41 am).

Backing that up, is Barty having dropped the opening set in two of her three matches in Adelaide. Because of that a flutter at 6/5 on the Ukranian grabbing the opener at 7/5 looks a decent option and she should be fresh after not needing a deciding set in her semi-final* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 17th, 2020 at 11:41 am).

As for the win, it has to be Barty because even though she has had to battle from opening deficits, the Australian has delivered the goods with her class shining through.
