Freshly retired Ashleigh Barty has reversed this decision to end her career at the age of only 26. She does not regret this choice at all and does not seem to miss the competition.
” I have no regrets about having retired. Not one. I knew it was the right time for me. It was what I wanted to do. And yes, it was amazing. That’s all I ever wanted. I haven’t watched the Wimbledon finals this year. Sorry to disappoint. Obviously, I was excited for Ons (Jabeur) and Elena Rybakina, who are brilliant girls. It was obviously great to see Nick (Kyrgios), who I’ve known for over a dozen years, make it to the final. But since I retired, I’ve probably watched as many games as when I played, which means little to none. Every once in a while I put on the background, but very rarely do I sit down and watch a game from start to finish with any interest. I’ve hit enough tennis balls in my life. I don’t need to see others type them. “Explains the Australian tennis women in the media.
