- New world No 9 keen to improve game on clay courts
- Queenslander senses opportunity in Paris
Ashleigh Barty sees no reason why the clay season will slow her down as she sets her sights on the French Open. The Queenslander was back on home soil on Wednesday after Sunday’s Miami Open victory propelled her to a career-high world No 9.
Barty will lead Australia’s Fed Cup semi-final charge in Brisbane later this month but is already eyeing the next grand slam in Paris.
