Cincinnati (United States) (AFP)
Australian world number one Ashleigh Barty won her first title in the Cincinnati Games, one of the women’s 1000 tournaments according to the new system of the WTA, by defeating the surprise of the 76th Swiss Championship Bill Teichmann 6-3, 6-1.
This is Barty’s fifth title this year, after she achieved her second Grand Slam title last month by winning Wimbledon, adding it to Stuttgart, Miami (also one of the 1000 tournaments) and the Australian Yarra Valley Classic.
Thus, the Australian (25 years) has prepared in the best possible way for the United States Championship, the last Grand Slam, which begins at the end of this month, where she will be the most prominent candidate to win it.
With this title, Barty compensated for the disappointing exit from the first round in the Tokyo Olympics, where she was the leading candidate to win the gold, before replacing it with the bronze of the mixed doubles.
Barty produced remarkable levels in Cincinnati, as she did not lose a set on her way to her thirteenth title in her professional career, while Techmann achieved her first surprise by ousting Japan’s second-ranked Naomi Osaka in the third round, and then her compatriot Belinda Bencic, who won the women’s singles gold in Tokyo in the quarter The final before eliminating Czech Karolina Pliskova, ranked fourth in the world, from the round of four.
The first set came close between the two players, as both of them kept their serve before Barty managed to break in the eighth and settle it in her favor in the ninth 6-3.
However, the scenario of the second was completely different, as the Australian dominated from the beginning, breaking her opponent’s serve in the opening game, before repeating it twice to advance 5-0 and have the opportunity to decide the match on her serve, but she lost the sixth game, before the confrontation was resolved by sending her opponent 6. -1.
Barty finished the match with 28 winners, compared to only 12 for her opponent, and also committed fewer direct errors than the Swiss (21 against 26).
