Review by Caroline Garcia of Ashleigh Barty’s book: Very open about setbacks and victories
World No. 5 It appeared that Caroline Garcia thoroughly enjoyed reading Ashleigh Barty’s book. “My Dream Time: A Memoir of Tennis & Teamwork,” written by Barty, was released in late 2022. Barty provided a rich and thorough account of the highs and lows of her tennis career in her book.
Garcia, a 29-year-old WTA Tour player with considerable experience, enjoyed reading about Barty’s adventures. “I appreciate you sharing your tennis life with us, @ashbarty. Being upfront and honest about the challenges you faced as well as your greatest triumphs
a motivation. I miss seeing you around, buddy “Garcia tweeted something.
Garcia liked the novel by Barty.
Barty described her shocking breakdown at Wimbledon in 2018 in her book.
In the third round of Wimbledon 2018 against Daria Kasatkina, Barty lost her composure. This issue has been building for months, largely hidden from the public eye save for individuals who are a part of my inner circle, but it has finally erupted in the very public limelight of the British grass-court season.
My good is tremendous, but my bad is terrible, and that’s the problem. I appear like a million bucks when I’m winning, but when my strategies aren’t working, I lack the ability to handle my own issues. I’m a 22-year-old very skilled professional athlete, yet right now I decide to throw a fit in front of everyone “Barty penned a book.
In her book, Barty also expressed her dissatisfaction at “losing my dignity” in addition to “losing the match and my s—-.” I turn away from my closest friends and weep myself to sleep that night out of embarrassment.” After that match, Barty came to the conclusion that it was time for her to make some changes.
Barty’s career changed dramatically after that point, and during the following few years, he won three Grand Slams and rose to the top of the global rankings. Barty abruptly declared his tennis retirement at age 25 in March of last year.
