On Thursday, Tennis Player Ashleigh Barty’s French open campaign came to end in sad circumstances. The world number was forced to retire hurt when 1-6 2-2 down against Magda Linette.

Barty, during her first-round win over the Bernarda perda two days earlier, gets a hip injury which is really a health concern.

The 25 years young tennis player Ashleigh Barty promised to “play through the pain barrier” when she returned to Roland Garros for the first time since winning her first grand slam title in Paris in 2019. However, the injury proved too much to handle on Thursday.

Following Naomi Osaka’s withdrawal due to a disagreement with tournament organisers, tennis player Ashleigh Barty retirement opens up the draw, with both top seeds now out.

Linette had to fend off an instant breakpoint to hold in the first game, but Barty’s uneasiness was obvious from the start.

However, three break points on her first serve were clawed back by the Australian, and a double fault in-game four-handed Linette the first break, with Barty plainly struggling to twist to her right.

Linette earned another break with a weak backhand into the net, and the Pole served out the set at the first time of asking with only 36 minutes on the clock.

Well, Linette was held at bay by Barty’s great returns, but the world number 45 hit a strong serve down the centre to tie the game at 2-2, and it was the final straw for her opponent, who shook hands at the tennis courts net and went down the tunnel with a wave to the audience.

Barty – 9/18
Linette – 12/9

Barty – 2/4
Linette – 4/0

Barty – 0/1
Linette – 2/7
