Disappointing? Sure she didn't win a title but it's hard to complain about:I would love to see Barty ends up winning this since her post Wimbledon and USO open was disappointing and lost to Osaka in Beijing. Kinda like I want her to justify her WTA player of the year over Bianca Andreescu.
Her only bad result was the 2R loss in Canada to Kenin.
Oh and Andreescu also lost to Osaka in Beijing though.... So not sure why that's a big dampener on Barty's claim to Player of the Year. Hell, Halep won it last year after an abysmal end to the year which featured 4 consecutive losses (lost in her first match at the USO, Wuhan and Beijing) and then withdrew from the YEC.
