Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley says Ash Barty will be remembered for her remarkable achievements both on and off the court.
It comes after the sporting champion Ash Barty announced her shock retirement on Wednesday, releasing an emotional video on her Instagram page.
Mr Tiley said he hopes to sit down with Ash and her team to discuss the possibility of a role in promoting tennis to young kids.
“I know there’s a lot of kids picking up racquets because of Ash,” he told Sky News Australia.
“One of the highlights in my career was standing next to her after she won…the look in her eye.”
