Australian Ashley Barty, current champion and current world number one, prolonged the defense of the title in the WTA 1,000 in Miami by defeating the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina 6-3 and 6-3.

The oceanic tennis player repeats the final as it happened in the last edition, when she won the title. Ashley Barty's 11th straight victory in Miami was completed in one hour and 27 minutes against an opponent she had lost to in four of the last five meetings.However, the 24-year-old tennis player from Ipswich had won the most recent. It was a rematch for Barty that was surpassed by Svitolina in this same scenario in 2018.

The Ukrainian, who was in the semifinal of this tournament for the first time, did not question the superiority of the Australian who, after Naomi Osaka's defeat in the quarterfinals, ensured her continuity as world number one.

Barty will play her ninth final since winning her first Grand Slam in 2019. This year she won in Melbourne and will play the title against the winner of the clash between Canada's Bianca Andreescu, eighth seed, and Greek Maria Sakkari.
