Australian Open 2021, tennis, latest news: Ash Barty, Yarra Valley Classic, withdrawals, Serena Williams, Garbine Muguruza


Ash Barty will take on in-form former world number one Garbine Muguruza in a mouth-watering Yarra Valley Classic final on Sunday at 11AM AEDT, just a day before the Australian Open begins.

Barty was set to face Serena Williams in the semi-finals of the event before the 23-time grand slam singles champion pulled out, citing a shoulder injury but remaining “very confident” she’ll compete in the Australian Open.

Williams’ withdrawal adds to those of world number three Naomi Osaka and two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka, as the shortened build-up to the year’s first major took its toll on the lead-in events.
