Barty capturing her second ever Grand Slam title on center court. In the first set got a glimpse of the defensive stubbornness that got Pliskova to the final. Check out 4-1(15-30). The point was ultimately lost to the Aussie but getting to the forehand in the corner at the end of the rally was something to behold. Watching 5-1 (15-0) was quite interesting. Here we have Pliskova down in the set needing to win this game badly throw the point away. At the end of the rally she ignores the open court of Barty’s left plays it straight at her to her strong forehand side. Not a glory moment for the Czech. Barty winning the set 6-3.
In the second set we have Pliskova go a break up early on, Ash never seems to do things the easy way. The Czech had a lot of close calls with the lines and net cord leading up to the tie break.Watch 3-1 first point, 4-1(15-0) as well as the tie break 4-2 Pliskova. You make your own luck but boy did she ride it all the way to winning the second set.Like she did all tournament, Ash likes to go for it early in the deciding set after losing the middle one. She hot those corner shots before long she was 3-0 up . Check out 5-2 first point. Great net focus from both players, for a second there my eyes said the ball bounced twice before Barty got to the drop shot.Check it out again maybe I am hallucinating. Had Pliskova not won that point would have been interesting to see if she would protest to the umpire. Barty taking this one 6-3 in the third. She is no doubt the new force in women’s tennis.
