French Open 2021: Australia’s world No. 1 Ash Barty defeats reigning champion Iga Swiatek

Ash Barty continues to put her French Open rivals on notice, producing another clay-court masterclass against a major threat.

Ash Barty has claimed another major scalp in her stampede through the clay-court season, dispatching the reigning French Open champion in straight sets.

The world No. 1 recovered from losing the first three games against Poland’s Iga Swiatek to post an impressive 7-5, 6-4 triumph in a match-up of the past two Roland-Garros winners.

Barty’s latest victory on the red dirt booked her a quarter-final clash with ninth-seeded Czech Petra Kvitova, who has won five of their nine meetings.
