Barty bounced as Bertens fires

Mercury (Hobart) - - TENNIS -

KIKI Bertens has turned the WTA Fi­nals up­side down with an im­prob­a­ble vic­tory over world No.1 Ash­leigh Barty.

Bertens ar­rived at the elite tour­na­ment as an al­ter­nate but has sud­denly jumped into ti­tle con­tention af­ter tak­ing the place of the in­jured Naomi Osaka and tak­ing down the mis­fir­ing Barty 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Belinda Ben­cic’s 6-3, 1-6, 6-4 win over Petra Kvi­tova blew the Red Group wide open with all four play­ers in the mix for a semi-fi­nal berth. Barty plays Kvi­tova tonight.
