2014[edit]

Barty started her 2014 season in qualifying at the 2014 Brisbane International after receiving a wildcard.

At Wimbledon, Barty lost in the final round of qualifying, 7-6, 3-6, 4-6 in a close three set match against Anett Kontaveit.

Fed Cup[edit]

Barty was chosen to represent the Australia Fed Cup team for the first time in 2013. She was just 16 years old. This meant Barty was the youngest Australian Federation Cup player since Jelena Dokic in 1998.[32] The tie was a World Group First Round match against the Czech Republic. Barty and Casey Dellacqua lost the doubles rubber. Barty's next Fed Cup tie was against Switzerland in a World Group Play-Off. Barty played her first singles match in Fed Cup where she defeated Stefanie Voegele in straight sets.[33]

Playing Style[edit]

She has an all-court game and is suited to play on all surfaces. Her first serve is either flat or slice and her second serve is generally a kick serve. Her biggest weapon is the forehand from which she can generate angles with pace and spin. Her variety is also her strength and she can play any shot in the book (slices, drop shots, lobs etc.).

Barty's game has been likened to former world number one and five-time grand slam tournament winner Martina Hingis for her small size and array of shots.[34]
