Ashleigh Barty Form


Ashleigh Barty is 28-6 in 2021 and has won WTA Tour titles in Melbourne, Miami and Stuttgart, as well as reaching the final of Madrid.

Barty reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open but was unfortunate to be injured at the French Open. She was forced to retire in the second round against Magda Linette due to a thigh problem.

Barty has not played a warm-up tournament on grass. However, she has a very good record on grass during her career. She has won two WTA Tour titles and reached an additional final on the surface, and won 10 of her last 12 matches on grass.

Carla Suarez Navarro Stats


Nationality: Spain
Age: 33 (3 September 1988)

Carla Suarez Navarro Form


Former top-10 player Carla Suarez Navarro is playing the final events of her career. The Spaniard with the one-handed backhand was planning to retire even before having to undergo treatment for cancer last year.

Suarez Navarro played her first match since February 2020 at the French Open, where she lost to Sloane Stephens 6-3, 6-7(4), 4-6.

It is evident from that result that the Spanish player’s fighting spirit remains intact and she has won many matches on grass in her time, although it is not her best surface.

However, Suarez Navarro does not seem physically or mentally fit enough at this point to be a serious threat to beat Barty.
