Wimbledon 2021: Our experts preview Ash Barty-Karolina Pliskova women's final

After a hiatus last year, we have finally reached our first Wimbledon final since 2019 with world No. 1 Ashleigh Barty taking on Karolina Pliskova in a tantalizing battle.

There has been a renewed sense of excitement about the courts over the past two weeks as fans returned to the stands. While thoughts of COVID-19 lingered with strict protocols for both competitors and fans, that hasn't overshadowed the fact that we have been treated to some exceptional matches.

Barty, 25, is the first Australian woman to reach a Wimbledon final since Evonne Goolagong Cawley.
