Czech tennis player Marketa Vondrousova reached the final of the 2019 World Cup. Marketa Vondroussova will fight with Ashley Barty from Australia for the French title in 2019.
Ashleigh Barty has been on the WTA tour for a longer period of time, and she has played big matches in the past, winning the US Open doubles tournament in 2018. Over the past 18 months, Ashley Barty has become the best single-player and this has become apparent thanks to her achievements. Her achievements include winning the Nottingham Open Tournament, the WTA Elite Trophy and Miami Masters. It was a difficult semifinal match for Ashleigh Barty, as she had to fight for 3 sets. Barty lost the starting set through a tie-break but managed to surpass his opponent in the last two sets. Ashleigh Barty received excellent service during the semifinal victory. Barty won more than 50% of his points and violated the opponent’s supply 8 times. This is Ashleigh Barty’s first grand slam finale, but given her recent form, the Australian will be confident in her ability to win the title.
Marketa Vondrousova enters this match, defeating Johanna Contu insets in the previous round. During the victory, Vondrousova received good service, as she received 44% of her points. Marketa Vondrousova won 4 return games and 72% of her service games to ensure overall victory. It was a very strong season for Marketa Vondrousova, as she made 2 WTA finals before this tournament. At the age of only 19 years, Marketa Vondrousova showed great maturity and self-control throughout this tournament, and it will be important that she continues in the same vein in this final.

Ashleigh Barty vs Marketa Vondrousova Prediction
Marketa Vondrousova significantly exceeded all expectations, and she will hope to win her first major title. Marketa Vondrousova showed great skill and has already defeated major players such as Anastasia Sevastova. However, I am going to choose Ashleigh Barty to win this match. Barty has much more experience, and the Australian has played in big finals in the past. Barty played in the finals of the doubles tournaments at Grand Slam tournaments and also won major tournaments such as Miami Masters. Barty has more attention to the big stage, and I see that it is important in this match.
