She was born on 24th April 1996 in Ipswich, Queensland, Australia to her parents Josie and Robert Barty. She attended Woodcrest State College throughout her student life.
She started her professional career in April 2010 just after turning fourteen years old at an International Tennis Federation (ITF) $25K (Rs 18.58 Lacs) event in her hometown of Ipswich. She lost her first match to professional Australian tennis player Karolina Wlodarczak. She played in one more main draw that year in Mount Gambier, where she reached the semifinals in just her second professional tournament.
Her first pro match win came against former Indonesian tennis player Ayu Fani Damayanti. Following her girls’ singles title at Wimbledon, Tennis Australia awarded her a wildcard into qualifying at the US Open. In her first WTA Tour-level appearance, she was unable to qualify for the main draw, losing her opening round match to Israeli retired tennis player Julia Glushko.
She becomes the youngest player in the competition, she won all five of her matches without dropping a set to earn the wildcard. She swept retired Australian professional tennis player Casey Dellacqua before defeating No. 239 Russian-born Australian tennis player Arina Rodionova and No. 167 Australian professional tennis player Olivia Rogowska in the knockout stage.
She partnered with Dellacqua in eight WTA Tour-level events during the 2013 season, including all four Grand Slam tournaments. The pair finished runner-up in three out of four such events, only failing to reach the final at the French Open where they lost in the first round. At the age of sixteen, her Australian Open finals appearance made her the youngest Grand Slam finalist since Russian-born French professional tennis player Tatiana Golovin won the mixed doubles title at the 2004 French Open.
As a team, she along with Dellacqua became the first Australian duo to reach an Australian Open women’s doubles final since Australian former world No. 1 tennis player Evonne Goolagong and Helen Gourlay in 1977. This success also helped her advance nearly 100 spots in the world rankings to No. 46. At Wimbledon and the US Open, she and Dellacqua defeated three of the top ten seeds at both events, including the No. 2 seeds in each case. The closest they came to winning a major title was at the Australian Open and the US Open, where they were up a break with a set in hand in both finals.
After the 2014 US Open, she announced she was taking a break from professional tennis. She later said that she took time off from tennis because “it was too much too quickly for me as I’ve been travelling from quite a young age. She was ranked outside of the top 200 in singles and was No. 40 in doubles at the time. At the Wuhan Open 2017 Czech professional tennis player, Karolina Pliskova reached the quarter-final stage before losing to her in three sets.
In 2017, she reunited with Dellacqua as her regular doubles partner. She had a strong start to the season, reaching the final of The 2018 Sydney International in her second tournament of the year. She started the Grand Slam tournament for the first time at No. 18 but was upset in the third round by Japanese professional tennis player Naomi Osaka. At 2017 Wimbledon Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina surpassed her previous performances by reaching the fourth round, defeating her in the first round.
She reached her first WTA-level clay-court semifinal but had to retire due to a back injury. The next week at the French Open, she was defeated by American professional tennis player Serena Williams in the second round, along with winning the first set. In 2018 Belarusian professional tennis player Aryna Sabalenka reached two quarterfinals to begin the year but lost her opening round match at the Australian Open to her.
For the second consecutive year, she started the 2019 Sydney International season with a runner-up finish at the Sydney International, this time losing to Czech professional tennis player Petra Kvitova. During the event, she defeated three top 15 players, including Romanian professional tennis player Simona Halep for her first career victory over a current world No. 1 player. At her next tournament, she made her first Grand Slam quarterfinal at the Australian Open, defeating Russian former professional tennis player Maria Sharapova before again losing to Petra Kvitova. She won the Miami Open for her first Premier Mandatory title.
After taking a rest break, she returned to the court making her debut at the 2020 Qatar Open, the first Premier 5 tournament of the year, where she lost to Kvitová in the semifinals. She next headed to Indian Wells, but play was suspended before the tournament began due to the COVID-19 pandemic. WTA tournaments resumed in August, but she decided to skip the rest of the year due to concerns related to travelling within the pandemic, which included deciding not to try and defend her French Open crown.
Spanish professional tennis player Garbine Muguruza participated in 2020 at Dubai, where she defeated Belgian Kim Clijsters and Russian professional Veronika Kudermetova, before being defeated by her in the quarterfinals, and lost in the quarterfinals of Doha to world No. 1 Australian professional Ashleigh Barty.
In 2021, she started to partner with American professional tennis player Jennifer Brady. She wins the title in the 2021 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix. This was her maiden doubles title and the first one since 2019. At the 2020 Olympics, she partnered with Australian professional tennis player Storm Sanders in the women’s doubles and reached the quarterfinals. In late March 2021, Canadian professional Bianca Andreescu participated in the Miami Open set up a clash with her in the final. Polish professional tennis player Iga Swiatek became the third player to win a title after saving match point en route in 2021, along with Naomi Osaka at the Australian Open along with her in Miami.
