Ashleigh Barty (1) will meet Bernarda Pera in the first round of the French Open 2021 on Monday 31 May 2021.
Will Bernarda Pera be able to claim one of the biggest wins of her career against the # 1, or will Ashleigh Barty come out here to defend the title she was unable to defend in 2020 due to her decision? not playing on the WTA tour during the height of the pandemic?
Although Bernarda Pera is seasoned and has a strong résumé, she has struggled with consistency in the last few years of her career. Pera had to focus on much smaller tournaments than big names to get a few wins this year, but even then she wasn’t very successful. Bernarda has to come out of here and play at an extremely high level here if she is to cause any excitement, but I’m not sure she will be able to.
Ashleigh Barty is the 2019 French Open champion and I am sure that she was unhappy not being able to defend her title in 2020 as she did not take part in the tournament like in Australia. I expect Barty will come out as strong here as she has played on clay all year and she will be determined to give herself a strong chance to win the title and become the 2x Grand Slam champion.
This will be the first meeting between the two players and unfortunately Bernarda Pera will be packing her bags for the next tournament. It’s so hard to beat Ashleigh Barty in a tournament and when it comes to a Grand Slam like Roland Garros it’s even harder. Barty will come here to do her best, and she will take this match in straight sets to give herself a strong chance to improve her confidence, gain a little more momentum, send a message to the rest of the WTA field send and show that she is still at the top of the tour.
