Ashleigh Barty loses in semifinal

I can't see how Ashleigh Barty got to be number 1 in women's tennis.

She doesn't appear to have a wide range of shots and plays the backhand slice so often the opponents will be expecting it every time.

I've never watched her play, to be honest.

I used to love tennis, but in recent years I haven't been paying it much attention.

Idiots like Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios have turned me off the sport.

That, along with stupid decisions like taking away Perth's Hopman Cup and replacing it with a men's only tournament.

And every time I see Margaret Court I have to turn the TV off.

Agree 100%. There is no 'killer' instinct evident. Never goes to the net. Pussy powder stuff back hand. Like you, have no idea how she is #1.

Sofia Kenin won 4-6, 6-2, 6-2.

Muguruza folded at the end.
