Barty Party, Teenager Takeover, and more! 2019 Women's Roland Garros Recap
"It was always the goal to come back and try and put myself in a position where I'm playing against the world's best and competing against the world's best, but when I had my time off, I think it was just a gradual progression of missing the competition, missing what I loved. I love this sport, and I'm very lucky to be in the position I am now." (Ash Barty via Bleacher Report)
"They accepted me, and they got to know Ash Barty. They got to know me. I still have those relationships to this very day"
"The way they are accepting of someone new coming into their locker room, into their dressing room and into their sport was amazing"
(Ash Barty via ABC.net)
“If anyone had told me before the tournament that I would have made the final, I would have said they were crazy. I can’t really believe it still, I think it’s going to change my life now,”
(Marketa Vondrousova via RolandGarros.com)
“It seems like such a hard thing to do. I didn't really think that I could. In this tournament, I feel a lot more confident and feeling my game a bit better than I did there.”
“I didn't look nervous because I wasn't. I was just super excited and I was really happy with the opportunity, it's honestly a dream. I can't ask for anything else."
