Australian tennis player Ashleigh Barty commented on reaching the final tournament in Sydney.
Note that the last Australian champion of the competition was Alicia Molik in 2005.
“Alicia is the captain of the national team in the Federation Cup, so it would be great to repeat her result. This is really a great week for me. I think I played great. I had strong rivals in each round, and I am very glad that I can play again. Both Mertens and Bertens were worthy rivals, so I understood that I had to show my best tennis in order to win. So tomorrow I have to be ready, and when I go out on the court, I will enjoy the moment, “the press service of the Tour quotes Barty.
