#Tennis: Top-ranked #AshBarty defeats #Garcia to even #FedCup final


Barty-Fed-Cup

PERTH, Australia — Australian Ash Barty continued her season-long extraordinary form to beat France’s Caroline Garcia 6-0, 6-0 and level the Fed Cup final at 1-1 on Saturday.

The world No.1-ranked Barty beat Garcia in just 56 minutes on an outdoor hard court at Perth Arena to get Australia back on track after Kristina Mladenovic beat Ajla Tomljanovic, who was making her Fed Cup debut, 6-1, 6-1, to give France the early lead.

Barty, who won her first major singles title at the French Open this year, extended her Fed Cup winning streak to 15 matches, a run that began in February 2017.

“I think that’s probably the best tennis match I’ve ever played in my life,” she said. “I could not have asked for a more perfect match.”
