MATCH PREVIEW

Barty Battling to Stay Top of Rankings

Australian Ashleigh Barty tops the world rankings but that might change soon. A run to the final of the Miami Open is needed to ensure that she remains in that position. Top seeded Barty has made it to the quarter finals but faces a tough game against seventh seeded Aryna Sabalenka.

Barty is playing her first overseas tournament since the pandemic began. 2020 saw her play just four tournaments. In those events, the world number one won the Adelaide International but lose to Sofia Kenin in the last four of the Australian Open. Her final tournament of the year was the Qatar Total Open, where Barty was beaten by Petra Kvitova in the last 16.

Then came a long time out of the game. Barty didn't play in either of the other two Grand Slam events, opting to stay at home. The Australian held onto her number one ranking though but the pressure is on her now to get results to stay in that position.

We wondered just how Barty would fare after taking ten months off the circuit. Her comeback was made in Australia and she won the Yarra Valley Classic. Garbine Muguruza was beaten in the final, a good result considering the subsequent form of the Spaniard.

Barty was looking good in the Australian Open, winning her first four matches in straight sets. Then she came up against unseeded Karolina Muchova in the quarter finals. A routine win looked on the cards as the Australian won the first set 6-1. However, she only won five games in the next two sets. More disappointment followed in the Adelaide Classic. The defending champion lost her first match, going down in straight sets to Danielle Collins.

Now Barty ventures outside her own country as she bids to retain her Miami Open title. It's not been an easy route to the last eight though. Two of her three matches have gone to final set deciders. Kristina Kucova and Victoria Azarenka both pushed the Australian hard. Naomi Osaka is the only player who can take Barty's top ranking. She's still in the tournament so a loss here may well end her time as number one.

Sabalenka Out for Another Win over Barty

Aryna Sabalenka has won three of her previous five meetings with Ashleigh Barty. Three of the last four have been won, the most recent a win in Wuhan two years ago. The last win for the Australian over Sabalenka was in the 2018 Federation Cup.

Like her opponent, Sabalenka has already won one tournament this year. That came right at the start of 2021 when the Belarusian won in Abu Dhabi. The win was her third tournament victory in succession after late 2020 triumphs in the Czech Republic and Austria.

Her Abu Dhabi win included victories over Maria Sakkari, Elena Rybakina and in the final, Veronika Kudermetova. Sabalenka has been unable to maintain that winning form though. Down under this year, she lost to Kaia Kanepi in the Gippsland Trophy and beaten by Serena Williams in the last 16 of the Australian Open.

Best not to mention Garbine Muguruza to her. The Spaniard has beaten Sabalenka twice this year, winning in both Qatar and Dubai. No chance of that in Miamia as Muguruza lost in the fourth round to Bianca Andreescu.

This is Sabalenka's best performance in the Miami Open. Two previous appearances saw her lose in the second round. That looked likely again this year after losing the first set to qualifier Tvetsana Pironka 6-0. Sabalenka had to go to 11-9 in a third set tie break to make it to round three.

Her form has improved since then with wins over Veronika Kudermetova and Marketa Vondrousova. Both were won in straight sets with only three games dropped against 19th seeded Vondrousova. Her serve is likely to give Barty problems but the Australian can win this, though may need to go to three sets to do so.
