Collins and Barty have played each other twice over the past two years on a hard court. A fairly comfortable straight sets win to Collins last year and a tight three setter with Barty winning in a final set tiebreak.

I'd say if Collins plays at this level she can beat ash on Sunday.

Barty killed her in Adelaide a fortnight ago.

Incorrect. The last time they played was in Australia in 2021 and it was a fairly comfortable win for Collins in straight sets. Their other match on a hard court was a very close match in which Ash won in a 3rd set tiebreak.

Collins can beat Ash on Saturday.

Kenin plays a different game from Collins but she has the same personality. Kenin shocked barty in 2020. If if Collins can get on top of the rallies, then there is a real chance. I doubt it, but Collins was well prepared for Swiatek. I am expecting the same against Barty. if Collins plays like this, it should be fun.

Yes. I got the year wrong.

But their last meeting was a straight sets win to Barty, was it not?
Yep, edited.

Still, she leads 3-1 and won their last meeting easily. pepsi must have missed that encounter.
I made mention in my post that their two matches on a hard court are split at one all. I don't think a clay court result is all that relevant to this discussion.

Jesus she's not the most likeable person on tour is Collins, never seen her crack a smile.

Yes, she seems a very intense individual, don't like anyone's chances if they burnt her steak or under cooked her pasta - doubt Tom Couch get's much of a say in anything..?
Fortunately Barty is not the fluffy bunny Swiatek just portrayed, so should be a interesting final...

Found a short clip from Danielle Collins's childhood:

Reckon Barty might be in a bit of strife.

Depends which Barty shows up.

If Barty can serve high percentage and keep rally balls deep, then she wins.

If she is nervous and drops balls mid court, they will get wacked and she will lose.

No she lost the most recent encounter 6-3 6-4 last year. Mate I’m not sure but you seem to struggle to understand what you are posting as evidence is actually proving the opposite of what you are saying.
