Barty could be drunk or injured or playing with a squash racquet (or all three) and she'll still beat the bunny boiler!

Barty will slice her to death and definitely won't be gifting her lollipop serves (ala Swiatek) to Collins's brutal forehand.

Collins is a big hitting emotional front runner, get a break on her serve early and if her head doesn't explode, she'll probably throw a racquet into the crowd and get DQ'd..!
Good to see the comedy club is not closed

It’s hardly Barty’s fault players lost before meeting her

The reason that the women all beat each other regularly, is because all of them play nearly identical game styles.... They all stand at the base line and just bash the ball at each other. Which causes upsets....

Keys said yesterday that there are no other players on the womens tour who play like Barty, hence why she is a clear stand out at the moment.

To my way of thinking you have a clear number one in Barty, who is so far ahead of the chasing pack that she has the only true ranking. And then about 40 players ranked below her who are all somewhat evenly matched. Therefore their rankings mean nothing.

Some guy sad that she hadn't beaten a top 20 player yet. Like that means anything in women's tennis. If anybody genuinely thinks that Keys and Anisimova aren't two of the best of the rest then they are not worth listening to. It's just that the gap between the best and the rest is a canyon.

Barty is 18-1 against top 20 players in the last year - Beating top 20 players is the least of her worries.
