Muguruza scored the final against Barty


Two-time Grand Slam winner Garbin Muguruza crushed Marqueta Vondrosova for just one game loss on Saturday and set up the Yarra Valley Classic final with world No. 1 Ashley Barty.

Muguruza, a finalist at the Australian Australian Open last year, beat 20 winners to beat 21st-seeded Vondrosova's service in 5 minutes to 5 minutes, 1-0, -0-0 to 53 minutes. Showing the form that put her at the top of the rankings in 2017, she has dropped just 10 games in four matches so far, including Sophia Canin's quarter-final thrashing – her winner in last year's Australian Australian Open final.
