World No 1 Ashleigh Barty might be out of Roland-Garros due to a left hip injury – but she is confident she will be fit in time for Wimbledon.

The Championships start on June 28, and the Australian will be looking to improve on her best result there – which came two years ago when she reached the fourth round in SW19.

“We do all the right things now, we continue to do the right things,” she told the media after retiring from her second-round match against Magda Linette. “Yeah, give ourselves the best chance.”

Barty: We ran out of time

The 25-year-old confirmed that it was a new injury and that her physiotherapist had not seen too many incidences of it either.

“We’ve been consulting with people all over the world to try and give us some insight into what the best ways to manage it are, to handle it, and I’m confident we do have a plan,” she added.

“It’s just that we ran out of time here. It’s disappointing but not panic stations in a way where we – I mean, we know what’s going on. We just need time to manage it to get back on the court as quickly as we can.”
