Re: Will Barty be one of the most consistent #1s in history?
In the past 52 weeks, she's lost to just three players ranked below her at the time of the match:
Mladenovic at Rome 2019
Sabalenka at Wuhan 2018
Azarenka at Tokyo 2018
Edit: in fact, going even further back, the losses to lower ranked players are similarly sparse.
S. Williams at Roland Garros 2018
Pavlyuchenkova at Strasbourg 2018
Sharapova at Rome 2018
Sakkari at Indian Wells 2018
Osaka at Australian Open 2018
Tsurenko at Brisbane 2018
She's gotten very, very good at beating players she's meant to beat.
