Ashleigh Barty shrugs off added pressure of being Grand Slam champion

:Headline: Ashleigh Barty shrugs off added pressure of being Grand Slam champion:
Barty was a finalist in Birmingham two years ago.

Ashleigh Barty vowed to enjoy her new-found status as a grand slam champion rather than worry about the pressure of expectation as she heads into her favourite part of the season.

The Australian has climbed to number two in the world rankings after surprisingly winning her first slam singles titles on clay at the French Open last Saturday.

Barty had always been considered at her most dangerous on grass, having won the Wimbledon junior title aged 15, and she will return to action on the surface at the Nature Valley Classic in Birmingham next week.

Barty said: "I love the courts here. Hopefully it stays dry first and foremost. I know that it's going to be a bit of a challenge changing surfaces so quickly. I'm not going to play my best tennis every day, but I can guarantee we'll be doing all the right things to give myself the best chance.

"It's a fresh start, it's a clean slate. A new season jumping on the grass. This is the time of the year I love playing tennis."
