MATCH POINTS

Ashleigh Barty is yet to drop a set this week and will look to be the third player this decade to win the title without losing a set, joining Sabine Lisicki in 2011 and Ana Ivanovic in 2014.

Should she win the match, Barty will claim the World No.1 ranking from Naomi Osaka in the new WTA rankings on Monday.

She would be just the second Australian woman to hold the top spot since the WTA introduced rankings in 1975, joining second-ever World No.1 Evonne Goolagong Cawley who spent two weeks there in 1976.

Barty is contesting her second career final in Birmingham, having finished runner-up to Petra Kvitova in 2017 in three sets.


Reaching the semifinals in doubles together before Barty withdrew from their semifinal match with a right arm injury, the Aussie and German duo are the first-ever Birmingham doubles pair to contest the singles final.

Goerges is through to the final in her first event alongside new coach Sebastian Sachs, looking to win her first title of the season.
