Brady, Conqueror of Sharapova and Barty

World number 53 Brady had to qualify for the tournament in Brisbane, but, having won her place in the main draw, she is taking full advantage of the opportunity she has won for herself. She began with a straight sets win over the wildcard Maria Sharapova, although the Russian was highly critical of the fact that their match was played on an outside court, because of a scheduling clash with the ATP Cup.

On Thursday, she then recorded the best win of her career on the Pat Rafter Arena, when she beat the world number one, Ashleigh Barty, in front of her home fans. Barty was rusty and made a series of unforced errors, which Brady, playing from the back of the court, was quick to exploit. She secured the only break of the match to take the first set, and then out-lasted her opponent in the second set tie-break.
