Barty likes to break early in sets and try to close then out quickly .Bianca warmed back into the match in the first set breaking back in the fifth game.She handed the break right back to Ash in the next game.I was really pulling my hair out in the manner in which she did that.Watch 3-2 advantage Barty.The back hand lob by Barty was going wide from my vantage point,Bianca should have been braver in allowing the ball to bounce instead of playing the backhand overhead back into court.Even if the ball hand landed just inside the line,Andreescu would have been placed well to make the decent shot back to court keeping the point well alive.Well,she did make a fight of it holding serve at 5-2 but there was no stopping BARTY who closed out the set 6-3.
Second set saw BARTY break early again and seize control of the set. She went a double break up 3-0 with done scintillating net play.The Ace to make it 4-0 must have been demoralizing for the Canadian.Bianca was in clear discomfort with injury. Barty winning a second consecutive Miami title by walkover. Not what she envisaged but they all count.
