Ashleigh Barty party to continue all the way to the final at the Miami Open
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.
