Ashleigh Barty vs Shelby Rogers Predictions


While carrying a thigh injury, Ashleigh Barty improved to 7-0 in 2021 with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Ekaterina Alexandrova. 

Despite being unseeded, Shelby Rogers should pose a bigger challenge. The American is a very powerful ballstriker and narrowly lost to Barty a week ago.

  • Ashleigh Barty won 5 of her last 7 matches in straight sets
  • All Ashleigh Barty’s serving stats improved in her last match after a dip
  • Shelby Rogers has recorded wins over Serena Williams and Simona Halep
  • Shelby Rogers has won 5 of her last 6 matches in straight sets

Head to Head


Ashleigh Barty leads the head-to-head with Shelby Rogers 2-0.

Barty won 7-5, 6-1 at the Australian Open in 2017, the same tournament at which Rogers defeated Halep.

The pair met again at the Yarra Valley Classic the week before the Australian Open. The match was decided in a 10-point tie-break with Barty winning 7-5, 2-6 [10-4]

Ashleigh Barty Form


A semifinalist at the Australian Open in 2020, home favourite Barty lost just ten points in her first-round match. 

The world no. 1 has had to work a bit harder since then. She narrowly avoided being taken to a third set by Daria Gavrilova. Against Ekaterina Alexandrova, Barty was down a break in both sets before coming back to win 6-2, 6-4.

Barty has a 2-0 record vs Rogers but she really was rocked on to her heels by the American’s power in their most recent encounter. Unless Barty lifts her level of play significantly from the Alexandrova match, she could struggle.

Shelby Rogers Form


A quarterfinalist at the US Open in 2020, Shelby Rogers has been playing some great tennis over the past year. 

Since returning from injury in April 2019, she broke back into the top 100 after beating Serena Williams in Lexington. At the US Open, she defeated Petra Kvitova.

Rogers is 6-1 in 2021 so far, and has won five of those six matches in straight sets. She is yet to drop a set at the Australian Open, defeating qualifiers Francesca Jones and Olga Danilovic. 

Against Anett Kontaveit, the 21st seed, Rogers came back from an early break to beat the Estonian 6-4, 6-3. 

Rogers had won over 60% of her second-serve points in her last two matches. She is playing very well and certainly has the weapons to cause Barty problems.
