Ashleigh Barty, at the 2021 WTA 500 in Stuttgart, reached the quarter-finals of the tournament thanks to a 6-0 7-5 wins over the German wild-card Laura Siegemund. In the press conference Barty said: "I've never played in conditions similar to those found here in Stuttgart, it's quite different from outdoor clay, pretty fast, and you get rewarded when you hit the first flat serve, which is quite.
unusual on some clay courts. The sterile conditions are quite unusual, and the feel of the feet is also different, probably due to the fact that the earth is arranged on wooden planks. I believe that when we move to Madrid and Rome we will find conditions more and more similar to those there will be in Paris.
