Ashleigh Barty continues her 2020 Australian Open campaign against Polona Hercog in the second round.

Barty had an interesting first round match. The Aussie began by losing the first set and then onwards actually concentrated and won the next two sets easily. Barty had issues getting her slice backhand to work and took her time in getting into the match. Barty has struggled in the past at the Australian Open but based on her 2019, we could see her challenge for the title itself.

Polona Hercog won her first-round match with ease. The Slovenian dictated play, moved her opponent around the court and was basically unstoppable on her own serve. Hercog is the type of player who will fight for every point and give it all out on the court. The Slovenian is one of the most underrated players on the WTA Tour and it will be interesting to see how she will play against the current world number 1.

This will be the first meeting between both players and will be an interesting match. Barty struggled in her first set and showed that she is beatable. However, this is Barty’s country, and she has the confidence after having an amazing 2019 season. Hercog will come out and challenge Barty, make her play long rallies and ensure that she doesn’t just walk all over here. This match will be tight, but the world number 1 should come out on top.

Barty to win in 3 sets.
