Ashleigh Barty’s 2021 season

After an eleven-month hiatus because of the pandemic, Barty returned to the tour at the 2021 Yarra Valley Classic and won the tournament. Later in the season, the Australian added four more titles to her résumé — Miami, Stuttgart, Wimbledon, and Cincinnati.

Even though she qualified for the Akron WTA Finals Guadalajara, Barty decided to skip her title defence in Mexico and end her season prematurely. After being on the road for eight months, Barty decided it was better to relax and recover and properly prepare for the Australian Swing at the start of next season. The last tournament the 25-year-old played was the 2021 US Open, where she lost to Shelby Rogers in the third round.

Ashleigh Barty is finishing the third year in a row at the WTA No.1 ranking.
