Shortly after Fila presented Ashleigh Barty‘s outfit ready for the BNP Paribas Open, the Australian has withdrawn from the tournament in Indian Wells, as well as from the subsequent Miami Open.
“I have not been able to adequately prepare for Indian Wells and Miami,” said the two-time Miami Open champion Barty, who is still recovering from her intense start to the season. “I don’t believe I am at the level necessary to win these events.”
The world No.1 Barty has been unbeaten this year. After winning the Adelaide International 1, she went on to clinch her third Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, beating American Danielle Collins in the final. Collins has also withdrawn from the BNP Paribas Open, citing ongoing injuries.
