Kerber beats Barty to claim Sydney title

Alex De Minaur is on a giant killing run

Kerber had played 26 tournaments in a row without winning the title.

After some tight early service games, Barty double-faulted to hand Kerber the first break and a 3-2 lead, and the German served out the opening set with little trouble.

The German took that energy in the second set, breaking Barty in the very first game.

Former world No.1 Angelique Kerber continued her strong start to the season by advancing to the Sydney International semifinals with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Dominika Cibulkova on Thursday.

However, Kerber - who will move back into the top 20 as a result of her return to form - is unlikely to have the home crowd on her side, as she will face Australian Ashleigh Barty in the final.

Kerber eased to a 6-2 6-3 triumph, reaching the Sydney final for the second time in her career having lost to Tsvetana Pironkova in 2014, and her first in any tournament since April previous year.

The four countries accuse Doha of supporting Islamist extremists and being too close to Iran, Saudi Arabia's arch-rival. Qatar denies the allegations, arguing the bloc aims to incite regime change in Doha.

Barty was looking to become the first Australian woman to win in Sydney since Alicia Molik in 2005.

"I felt like it was a pretty good level".

"And Angie is on fire".

"I'd love to go one further and hold the trophy up here", Barty said.

Down another break and serving to stay in the match, Barty dug out the fighting spirit her fans had grown accustomed to, although it was not enough to outlast her opponent's dominance.

"But we will head to Melbourne tonight and do what we need to do over the next couple of days to get ready".
