"Whatever happens, happens" says Barty about Australian Open final
Ashleigh Barty always maintained a grounded approach to her tennis career opting to not put too much pressure on herself.
A similar thing is happening this year as she cruised to her maiden Australian Open final appearance. She will face Danielle Collins in the final and Barty is embracing it as a new experience not thinking too much about the outcome.
"Saturday's going to be a new experience for me. So I go out there and embrace it, smile, try and do the best that I can and whatever happens, happens. I'm really looking forward to having one last crack here to really go out there and enjoy it."
Her opponent, Danielle Collins is a very good player at the Australian Open reaching her maiden grand slam final at this event. She did play in the semifinals in 2019 but lost that time. On facing Collins, Barty said:
"I think the way she's able to control the baseline and really take the game on, she's one of the most fierce competitors out here. She loves to get in your face and loves to really take it on. It's going to be a challenge for me to try and neutralise as best that I can, but it is certainly nice to see her back out here playing her best stuff."
