"I just don't have that in me anymore"- Ashleigh Barty

"I know how much work it takes to bring the best out of yourself," Barty said in a video. "I've said it to my team multiple times — 'I just don't have that in me anymore.' Physically, I have nothing more to give. I've given absolutely everything I have to this beautiful sport of tennis, and I'm really happy with that. For me, that is my success."

Nevertheless, Barty remarked in her video that winning Wimbledon, which was her dream, transformed her perspective."I just had that gut feeling after Wimbledon and had spoken to my team quite a lot about it. There was just a little part of me that wasn't quite satisfied, wasn't quite fulfilled. There was a perspective shift in me in the second phase of my career, that my happiness wasn't dependent on the results."

"The challenge of the Australian Open, and I think that for me, feels like the most perfect way — my perfect way — to celebrate what an amazing journey my tennis career has been … As a person, this is what I want. I want to chase after some other dreams that I've always wanted to do," the World No.1 added.
