Tennis Prediction of the Day Ashleigh Barty vs Danielle Rose Collins
Ashleigh Barty is obviously a favorite in almost every match, being the world number one and a complete sportswoman.
But this year was quite modest, for example in Brisbane losing in the first match with Brady, then here struggling with Pavlyuchenkova.
Danielle Collins is a great talent, she has been a professional for only 3 years.
But Danielle plays very well, this year having a clear victory with Svitolina, then here passing in minimum sets of Sasnovich, Kenin and Bencic, yesterday with Belinda serving ideally.
