What an amazing opportunity for Ashleigh Barty and Marketa Vondrousova as the pair square off for a maiden major title at Roland Garros on Saturday.

It’s a final nobody predicted, but on closer inspection, it’s not as surprising as most are making it out to be, with Barty and Vondrousova two of the season’s most in-form players. Barty currently has the most wins out of anyone on tour in 2019 with 30, while Vondrousova has made at least the quarter-finals of every tournament she’s played since the Australian Open, beating Simona Halep twice, and advancing to the French Open final without dropping a set.

Both players overcame adversity in their respective semi-finals, with Barty surviving a roller-coaster match with Amanda Anisimova and Vondrousova coming back from a break down in both sets to emerge triumphant in straights against Johanna Konta.


Barty, who was playing professional cricket a little over three years ago, is striving to become the first Australian woman to win the French Open title since Margaret Court did so 46 years ago in 1973, while Vondrousova - the first teenager to make a Roland Garros final since Ana Ivanovic in 2007 - is looking to emulate Hana Mandlíková in 1981 and snap a 38-year drought for the Czech Republic, while the 19-year-old is also trying to become just the second unseeded player since 1933 to win Roland Garros and just the seventh left-handed player in the Open Era to claim a Grand Slam.

No teenager has won a Grand Slam title since Maria Sharapova at the U.S. Open in 2006, while Iva Majoli was the last teen to reign supreme at Roland Garros in 1997.

Barty and Vondrousova are also set for big ranking jumps courtesy of making their first major final. Barty  will rise to No. 2 if she wins the title and No. 3 if she finishes runner-up, which would be the highest ranking for an Australian woman since Wendy Turnbull in 1985, while Vondrousova will climb from No. 38 to No. 11 if she wins and No. 16 if she loses.

It’s all shaping up to be a spectacular women’s singles final between two of the brightest young talents in tennis - read on below as we go over all the numbers, stats and quotes ahead of the final below.

Quotes ahead of French Open final


Ashleigh Barty

“That is the hardest thing I have ever had to do,’’ Barty said of her epic semi-final win over Anisimova. “I fought my hardest and it feels amazing. I am proud of the way I fought to win that match, the conditions were incredibly tough.
"It's an amazing opportunity for myself and my team. We have worked so hard to put ourselves in these positions. Now, we get to go out there and really enjoy it.
"That's the only way to approach it is to go out and enjoy it, have fun, try and play with freedom. That's ultimately when I play my best tennis and that's what we are after."

Marketa Vondrousova

"It's amazing. I never, like, imagined this. But, yeah, it's the best week of my life so far. I'm just very happy with everything. It's an amazing thing."
"We never play on clay, so it's going to be something new,” Vondrousova said of Barty. “Of course she's top 10 now and she's playing amazing tennis. She's playing so much like -- she's mixing it also like me, so I think it's going to be interesting match. It's final, and I'm just gonna focus and try to relax."
