On January 29, the final match of the women's singles at the Australian Open will take place, in which the first racket of the world, Australian Ashleigh Barty, will play with American Danielle Collins, who occupies the 30th place in the WTA ranking. The forecast for this match is given by the famous tennis player Anna Chakvetadze in the past.
Many were surprised by the composition of this final – few people bet on Collins' successful performance. But she confidently moved along the grid, removing the seeded tennis players from the path, and in the semifinals she held a dream match at all, where all her serves fell, with aggressive and risky attacks she practically made no mistakes, wound herself up. Although she will hardly be able to play two such matches in a row. Why? Because Barty is a special competitor.
The Australian knows how to change the rhythm during the match very well. With her sliced punches and backhands, she puts her opponents in a difficult position, and when they play to her right, Ashley scores. Barty has practically no weak points. In addition, the hostess of the Australian Open has a very good serve, and if Ashley herself is not afraid, it is difficult to imagine what Collins will be able to impose a fight in this final.
Anna Chakvetadze doubts that Danielle's serve will be the same as it was in the semifinals. When shooting from the back line, the advantage due to the change of rhythm will be on the side of the Australian. The expert puts on a lower total for games.
