The talent for everything of the 'number one': champion with the golf clubs after resigning from Roland Garros

Just two weeks ago, Ashleigh Barty decided that she would not travel to Paris to defend her Roland Garros title. The decision of the 'number one' of the WTA, who had also previously resigned from the US Open, was a tacit goodbye to the season. A tremendous setback for the great dominator of the circuit in 2019, when she won six titles and rose to the top of the ranking. For now, Barty is still waiting for sanitary conditions to improve in his country, as he has not even been able to meet with his coach, Craig Tyzzer . In the absence of the racket, he has so far held the golf clubs. And its results are amazing.

On Sunday, the great aussie tennis reference lifted the title at Brookwater Golf Club, a course located on the outskirts of Brisbabe, very close to Ipswich, his hometown. A 7 & 5 victory in an amateur tournament, under the matchplay modality, which confirms Barty's exceptional skills with clubs.

The 'number one', although far from the global popularity of Coco Gauff or Naomi Osaka , is a star in the oceanic country.

In fact, in 2015 he did not hesitate to play a game with the Brisbane Heat, during the inaugural season of the women's Big Bash.

However, Ashleigh's talent with golf seems to go one step further. “He has all the capabilities and if he wanted to make the leap I'm sure he could do it,” he assured, ” Louis Dobbelaar , Sunday's champion in the men's tournament.

Flattery is nothing new to Barty, who caught the eye of Tiger Woods a year ago. “He has a magnificent swing,” said the 15 'majors' champion as soon as he saw her play in Melbourne, home of the Presidents Cup.
