Arm injury forces Barty to withdraw from Eastbourne WTA tourney

Arm injury forces Barty to withdraw from Eastbourne WTA tourney

Australia was heaping praises for the new queen of tennis - Ash Barty, who recently claimed the World No.1 ranking after winning the WTA Birmingham Title.

"I'm nowhere near her status", Barty, said of the seven-times Grand Slam champion. It's a bone stress injury and I need to look after it, particularly in these first few days.

"I don't think she went to the French thinking she had a shot which is maybe why she went there and put no pressure on herself, she was just playing it and enjoying it, and getting through the rounds and suddenly she's won a grand slam".

She then repeated that clay court form on the grass at Birmingham last week and Tyzzer said it proves she's the most versatile player in the women's game.

Goerges fought back tears as she congratulated her friend on taking top spot in the rankings ahead of Wimbledon, which starts July 1. Her 6-2, 6-3 loss to Yulia Putintseva on Thursday opened the door for Barty.

She is the first Australian to win the title and only the second Australian woman to top the WTA rankings since her hero, Evonne Goolagong-Cawley, achieved it 43 years ago in 1976. "So it was the best thing she ever did, was step away from the sport and just reassess her life and see what she wanted to do", her coach, Craig Tyzzer, said the day Barty won the French Open.

Ash Barty's former school, Woodcrest State College, is planning to name one of its school halls after the World #1 in women's tennis.

Ashleigh Barty plays a forehand during her 6-3 7-5 win over Julia Goerges in the Birmingham Classic decider.

Barty is on a winning streak of 12 straight matches and is the United Kingdom bookmaker's favorite for the Wimbledon title.

"It's about rest, it's time off court and then monitoring how many balls I do hit when I am on court". "This part of the year is always tough as I am away from home for a long time, but I enjoy playing on different surfaces and always love being back in the United Kingdom for the grass season".

The world No 18 Goerges is also out of the Eastbourne tournament with a stomach virus while the No 9 seed, Anastasija Sevastova, has withdrawn with an injured right thigh.

Barty began 2019 at No. 15 and with one fourth-round showing in her 17 appearances in singles at major tournaments.
