Ash Barty has been on song ever since the 2022 season started. The world No 1 improved to a perfect 10-0 on the season with a dominant takedown of Madison Keys in the Australian Open semi-finals on Thursday, and will set her sights on becoming the first home talent to claim the Australian Open women’s singles crown since 1978 when she meets American Danielle Collins in the final.
In the latest Eye of the Coach, Patrick Mouratoglou breaks down what has made the Aussie unplayable in Melbourne and discusses the way she is able to rattle opponents despite not being one of the most powerful players on tour.
