The Ashleigh Barty party continued at the Miami Open as the Australian defeated Anett Kontaveit to advance to the final.

The 22-year-old, who will break into the top 10 in the world when the new rankings are released, was in control throughout and eased to a 6-3, 6-3 win.

“It was a very long day, I know we had to wait around but it was an opportunity to drink some coffee and watch the golf so I was relaxed,” said Barty.

“When I came out I was ready for business. I didn’t start well but I was able to reset and do what I had to do.”

Barty will face either Simona Halep or Karolina Pliskova in Saturday’s final as she hunts her first WTA Premier Mandatory title.
