As the Wimbledon winner communicated on Saturday, they have a priority to relax and want to focus to have the strongest possible preparation at the beginning of the season in their homeland with the Australian Open (17 to 30 January) as a first highlight. In view of the challenges that return to Queensland and quarantine regulations, I am not ready to endanger my preparation for January, Barty wrote. In 2019 she had won the WTA finals, the final tournament of the eight best players of the season. This year Barty celebrated five tournament victories, including in Wimbledon. Since her third-rounded-out of the US Open she was no longer in use. For the Billie Jean King Cup (1 to 6 November) in Prague, the 25-year-old had already withdrawn.
