Can Ashleigh Barty win first Grand Slam title?

What a big moment it is for Ashleigh Barty. The young Australian will step out into her first Grand Slam final on Saturday. Until this year she had never been past the fourth round at a Grand Slam. She broke that duck with a quarter-final berth at the Australian Open earlier in the year. Now she has improved even further to step into the French Open Final.

She powered her way through the early rounds, seeing off Americans Jessica Pegula and Danielle Collins before taking out Andrea Petroczi in the third round. Barty then dropped the first set of her campaign in her fourth-round tie against Sofia Kenin, the American tying things up in the second. But Barty put her foot down to win the final set 6-0.

Then she took out more American opposition in 14th seed Madison Keys in the quarterfinals. That set her up with clash against yes, another American, this time youngster Amanda Anismivoa who had caused a quarter-final shock by knocking out reigning champion Simona Halep. Barty had to fight back from dropping the opening set to earn the win.

Is she about to step into the big time with a Grand Slam title? Barty is 6/4 to win 2-0* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 7th, 2019 at 10:44 p.m.).

Barty v Vondrousova Head to Head

There have been two previous meetings between the two players and Barty has won both of them. The first was a 2017 clash on grass in Birmingham. That was followed by an early meeting in Cincinnati last year. Barty won both encounters without dropping a set.

Can Vondrousova beat Barty?

It has been some story from Vondrousova who had no record to speak of in Grand Slams before this event. The Czech youngster’s previous best at a Slam was a round of sixteen finish at the 2018 US Open. She had a W1 L2 record at Roland Garros before this year’s campaign. Vondrousova has been carrying form with her through the season though. The 19-year-old picked up her first WTA title last year and has been to two finals this year.

She lost in the final of Istanbul on the dirt before running to the quarterfinals of Rome where she was beaten by Johanna Konta. Vondrousova got some big revenge over Konta by beating her in the semifinals of the French Open. Vnodorusova had already beaten Simona Halep in Rome over three sets (which was her second win over Halep this year).

It has quietly been a superbly impressive season from her. Since an early exit at the Australian Open, she has reached at least the quarterfinals in all tournaments played. Now she finds herself in the final of a Grand Slam. Her win over Konta was the third at Roland Garros this season against one of the top 32 seeds who had entered.

In the fourth round, she beat Anastasija Sevastova and then Petra Martic in the quarterfinals. Then reached the final without dropping a set and is 11/4 to win 2-0 in this one* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 7th, 2019 at 10:44 p.m.).

Barty v Vondrousova Prediction

This should be some game. Voundrousova is playing with such belief and she was at 5-3 down in both sets of her semi-final against Jo Konta and still won the match in straight sets. She is looking confident and fluent at the moment and this could easily go to three sets at 11/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 7th, 2019 at 10:44 p.m.).

Barty is looking as gritty and determined as ever and starts at the favourite. She has the head to head form over the Czech player. There is going to be far more pressure on her because of expectancy though. That could be a factor and given the highly impressive season from Vondrousova, a flutter on the underdog is not appealing.
