Ash Barty vs Jessica Pegula Prediction & Preview

It’s been a near-flawless tournament for Ash Barty to date as the World No. 1 targets the semi-finals of the Australian Open on Tuesday against Jessica Pegula of the USA.

Barty is aiming to become the first home women’s champion of the Australian Open since 1978 and she’s going about her business impeccably in reaching the last eight.

After capturing the Adelaide title to launch the season with good wins over the likes of Coco Gauff, Sofia Kenin, Iga Swiatek and Elena Rybakina, Barty has continued her winning momentum at Melbourne Park over the last week.

Indeed, Barty has raced through the draw and into the second week, crushing Legia Tsurenko, Lucia Bronzetti and Camila Giorgi without breaking a sweat before accounting for the dangerous Amanda Anisimova 6-4 6-3 on Sunday night.

Barty defeated Anisimova en route to her maiden Grand Slam at the French Open in 2019 and incidentally also defeated Pegula in that same tournament. Will the outcome be the same in Melbourne as it was in Paris?

Pegula was one of the WTA’s stand-out performers in 2021 as the American – who’s family owns the Buffalo Bills franchise in the NFL – started the season by reaching the Australian Open quarter-finals and also finished runner-up in Doha and made the semi-finals of Canada and quarter-finals in Dubai, Indian Wells, Rome and Cincinnati.

It was a consistent season that began with a first top 10 win at the Australian Open over Elina Svitolina and now Pegula has eight over the last 12 months after repeating that run to the last eight in Melbourne this week, toppling Maria Sakkari in straight sets in the R16.

After losing her opening set of the tournament to Anhelina Kalinina and actually being on the brink of elimination in a second set tiebreak before prevailing 7-5 in the third after almost three hours, Pegula hasn’t dropped a set and is confident heading into this clash.

However, Barty is playing basically perfect tennis right now. The World No. 1 is serving superbly and delivering a masterclass in variation from the baseline, utilising her slice backhand and powerful forehand to outmanoeuvre and overpower her opponents. Pegula’s playing well, but Barty is playing better and we expect the World No. 1 to continue her dominant form and progress into the semis in straights.
