Barty into semi-finals on Montreal debut

Published by , Friday 08/10/18 20:24

Australian 15th seed Ashleigh Barty reached the semi-finals of the Montreal WTA tournament on Friday, reeling off nine of the last 10 games to defeat giantkiller Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 6-3, 6-1.

Barty was the more composed player in difficult, windy conditions as Bertens, who had seen off ninth seed Karolina Pliskova and eighth-seeded Petra Kvitova in her previous two matches, was undone by 31 unforced errors in the 55-minute quarter-final.

Barty has reached the semi-finals on her Montreal debut having made the last 16 when the event was held in Toronto last year.

"It was really tricky conditions and we were both struggling a little," Barty said in her on-court interview.

"I'm very happy to come through and get a little bit better during the match."

The world number 16 will face either top seed and Roland Garros champion Simona Halep or French sixth seed Caroline Garcia for a place in the final.

Novak has scripted an inspirational comeback and looking more dangerous than ever. He will squeeze every player to exhaustion. What can possibly stop him? May be a power game with brilliance which I can associate with Thiem and Sascha on their days. Waiting for claycourt season when he will be facing Rafa in the finals.
