World number one Ash Barty has conceded just eight sets so far, with a comprehensive victory over 30th seed Camila Giorgi on Friday. The 25-year-old is a two-time Grand Slam champion after her brilliant campaign at Wimbledon last summer and her first at Roland-Garros in 2019 where she beat Amanda Anisimova in the semi-finals. Barty won the Adelaide International two weeks ago for a 14th career WTA title.
20-year-old Amanda Anisimova is through to the round of 16 at the Australian Open for a second time after claiming one of the best wins of her career over reigning champion Naomi Osaka on Friday. The former world number 21 is well on her way back to the top of the sport after some difficult years on tour following her breakthrough season in 2019 and she won her first title since that year at Melbourne Summer Set 2 two weeks ago.
This match will mean a lot to Amanda Anisimova for many reasons, not least the fact that it was Ash Barty who ended her incredible Roland-Garros run in 2019 in a three-set semi-final. Barty went on to win her first Grand Slam title that weekend whilst the then teenager had to cope with the sudden pressures of the world stage and, since then, the loss of her father. Her victory over reigning champion Naomi Osaka was vastly impressive on Friday but the Japanese star was still very much coming back from a long break from the sport. World number one Barty is a level above any player on tour right now and her ability is such that only a poor performance from her should keep her from taking the title on Sunday. Anisimova has an eight-match winning streak whilst Barty has seven wins on the spin to protect. The match is on the top seed’s racket here and whilst she can be backed to win it would not be a surprise to see Anisimova take the Aussie’s first set in Melbourne.
