Barty’s emotions after the final match
Australian Ashley Barty commented on her victory at the tournament in Stuttgart.
“It’s been an incredible week, I’ve played a huge amount of matches. I think I’m starting to take my tennis to the next level. On the court, I act calm, play freely and relaxed.
I’m very proud to have my name on a par with Justine Henin and Lindsay Davenport. They are great champions, tennis legends. It’s great to share history with them.”
After her successes at the Yarra Valley Classic and in Miami, Barty brought home her third trophy of the season.
