Ash Barty Returns To Tennis

Retired superstar Ash Barty will be reuniting with the grass courts at Wimbledon for the first time since her epic triumph* in 2021 after agreeing to take part in an invitational* doubles match.



It will be the first time the three-time grand slam champion* takes to the courts since announcing her shock retirement in March 2022.


Barty, who since her retirement has got married and become a mother, will play in the exhibition match* on Tuesday, July 9.



The event will include women’s doubles, men’s doubles and mixed doubles. Wimbledon officials made the announcement on social media, declaring they were “delighted” to have the 28-year-old back.


“Reunited with the Wimbledon grass,” Wimbledon announced. “Delighted to have our 2021 singles champion Ash Barty returning for this year’s Invitational Doubles.”

Since her retirement, she has been reluctant* to pick up a racquet competitively and has repeatedly said that despite retiring at such a young age, she had no intention of a full-time return.
