Two players similar in stature and style of play. Both former French Open winners.Disappointing first service game from Jelena after sweating Barry on her own first service game.Fron there Ash looked very comfortable on her serve. Jelena’s unforced error count in that first set way too high for my liking.Not surprisingly Barty won the first set 6-3.Picking up the match with Ostapenko leading 2-0 (15-30) on her serve. Look at Ash’s position when Jelena is serving on her second attempt.She is well inside the baseline in anticipation of the slower serve. This was Jelena’s chance to surprise Barty with a brave and fast serve,possibly catching her out for an Ace.Barty would break back in that very game. From there Ostapenko committed unforced errors,crucially at 2-2 (30-15) and 4-2 Barty leading with the advantage at deuce as well. That effectively handed the match to the Australian.
