Barty targeting 'next goal' of no. 1 spot after French Open triumph

The Ashleigh Barty vs Marketa Vondrousova match is scheduled to begin at 06.30 PM (Indian Standard Time). It nearly seemed as though the 23-year-old could do no wrong.

She will be best-ranked Australian woman since Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1976. When, at last, she came back in June 2016, she set out on the road to the Roland Garros final.

World no 8 Ashleigh Barty will take on Czech Republic's Marketa Vondrousova in the finals of Women's Singles of French Open 2019.

"Evonne sent me a text a couple days ago and said this was her first Grand Slam", Barty said.

Vondrousova hadn't dropped a set entering the match, but fell to 0-3 against Barty.

It was only some way through the second set that we saw the Vondrousova, who toppled seeds in quick succession, attempt to mark a comeback. She played for Brisbane Heat in the Women's Big Bash League and coaches reckon she had what it takes to play for Australia as well.

Barty's victory continues a superb 2019.

After winning the match, Barty leaned over the tennis net and gave her opponent a big hug. She has made no secret of the fact that grass is her favourite surface, and although her game has been successful across surfaces, it is still most suited to grass.

The main online retailer has started offering the Pixel 3A and 3A XL at their respective $399 and $479 price tags. Despite the design , it's expected to keep stereo speakers on the front, just like in the Pixel 2 and Pixel 3.

"Marketa has had a fantastic tournament and will be in many more Grand Slam finals". Her serve is strong and effective and she leads the first serve charts at this year's tournament. Next year, she would prove her vast prowess at the doubles. Can Barty pull off "The Channel Slam" and become the first woman to win the French Open and Wimbledon back-to-back since Serena Williams in 2015?

Barty raced to a 4-0 lead and then held on, showing that she learned her lesson after blowing a 5-0 edge in the opening set of her quarterfinal victory a day earlier against another unseeded teenager, 17-year-old American Amanda Anisimova. By the end of that season, she had reached 272.

But the irrevocable damage had been done and when Barty slammed a short smash high into the stands it was all over and she raised her arms in triumph. She also seemed gobsmacked that she won the match and was spotted swearing in disbelief. If I was going to play tennis, if I wasn't going to play tennis, for me that didn't matter.

Still in her teens, and starting off with no significant ranking to speak of, Barty steamrolled through 2017 - her year of transformation in every possible way.

It was in Paris that a 13-year-old Barty got her first taste of life on the road when she joined a group of fellow Australian junior hopefuls competing at an global event.

However, her most immediate problem is getting some experience of Court Philippe Chatrier having never set foot on the surface before.

Barty's playing skill has never been in question.

"I left all of my options open". These are two of the most inventive, technically gifted players on the tour, and there should be a bit of a throwback feel, full of slice and variety. Within a year, Barty was back into a major final, this time in doubles with her best friend and mentor Casey Dellacqua. "That's ultimately when I play my best tennis and that's what we are after". Humble and affable in interviews, the 23-year-old still comes across as "one of us", if only we were all impressively skilled at tennis and had the ability to win a Grand Slam title or two.
