Ash­leigh Barty on hot run in Syd­ney

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - Sport -

Aus­tralia’s Ash­leigh Barty claimed an­other top 10 scalp to power into the Syd­ney In­ter­na­tional ten­nis fi­nal on Fri­day as she heads to­wards the Aus­tralian Open as one of the form play­ers.

The 22-year-old is on a hot run, stretch­ing her un­beaten streak to seven matches dat­ing back to her ca­reer’s big­gest ti­tle at the WTA Elite Tro­phy in Zhuhai.

Barty had al­ready ac­counted for world num­ber one Si­mona Halep and for­mer French Open cham­pion Je­lena Ostapenko be­fore beat­ing 10thseeded Bel­gian Elise Mertens in the quar­ter­fi­nals.
