Ashleigh Barty: "Barbora Krejcikova? It will be a great challenge"

On Saturday, world number one Ashleigh Barty closed the program at Wimbledon's Center Court. The Australian controlled the game despite the mixed performance and beat Katerina Siniakova with a good 6-3, 7-5. In the tenth game of the second set, the one in which she served to reach the round of 16, Barty recovered from 15-40 by hitting three consecutive aces but lost the serve, wasting a match point due to two very serious freebies.

In the next game, on the fourth chance, Barty hypnotized Siniakova with a smashing lob and ended the game with a convincing turn to serve. In the press conference, the world no.1 talked about the match and about her opponent in the 4th round, Barbora Krejcikova, winner of Roland Garros 2021.

She said: "I savored every second on the Center Court, and I think it went better today in terms of my level of play, I was able to control my shots better and use my serve more effectively. It will be a new challenge with Barbora.

who obviously has been playing exceptional tennis in the last couple of months. I have played many times against her in doubles but never singles. It will be a new experience and a new challenge for both of us and this will force me to play my best tennis.
