Ashleigh Barty, the world number one, announced her retirement from tennis just a few days ago, at the age of 25. A well-considered choice that has rendered all female tennis lovers stunned. She stated, ” “I’m announcing my retirement from tennis today, which is both a tough and exciting day for me.
I’d like to pursue other goals. I am aware that this is the correct decision; nonetheless, I currently lack drive and, more importantly, the desire to perform at a high level.” The tennis player’s original retirement to devote herself to cricket was announced in 2014, which came as a complete shock and surprise.
She changed her mind in 2016 and decided to return, and her decision has paid off handsomely. She won three Grand Slam titles, the most recent around two months ago in Melbourne alongside Ashleigh Barty, who was now the favourite in every major WTA Tour competition.

However, in the last several hours, shocking news has occurred that drastically changes the scenario. The Australian tennis player revealed her return to the court on a podcast: “Yes, I’m having second thoughts about it.
In retrospect, my retirement was a horrible movie. I’ve decided to return to tennis, starting with the grass-court swing, with the goal of competing at Wimbledon. My ambition is to win the US Open and complete the career Grand Slam, and be regarded as the greatest female tennis player of all time.
Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Steffi Graff, and all the other great champions inspire me. I’ll be back to join in the fun!” If you’ve made it this far in the article, you’ve been the victim of an April Fool’s joke!
