Tears of Andreescu and another title for Barty

The Australian number one dominated the 20-year-old Canadian, 15 months absent from the circuit due to an injury, who suffered another to an ankle and could not finish the match.


Ashleigh Barty stopped Bianca Andreescu in the Miami final. The world number one defended her 2019 title (in 2020 it was not celebrated due to the pandemic) with enormous authority by 6-3 and 4-0. The 24-year-old Australian won the tenth tournament of her career and second of the year after Yarra Valley.

Andreescu (9th and will rise three places), only 20 years old but already champion of the US Open 2019, was playing her third tournament since October 2019. Then, a serious knee injury coupled with the pandemic forced her to a 15-month break . In Miami, he pulled character to eliminate Garbiñe Muguruza, Sara Sorribes and Maria Sakkari in three tough games, but succumbed to Barty's avalanche ... and bad luck.

The Australian achieved two breaks in the first set. In the second, when he was already one up, Andreescu suffered a fall with 0-2 that affected his right ankle and impaired his mobility. He could only last two more games to retire in tears.
