World No. 1 Ash Barty says she is enjoying her quarantine-free preparation for the Australian Open in Melbourne.

“It’s very unique. It almost feels like a bit of a camp if I’m being honest,” the Queenslander told Tennis Australia.

“Obviously the Queenslanders, we typically train together, but now we’re seeing the Victorian players for the first time in a long time.

“A few of the SA (South Australia) boys are here, the New South Welshmen are trickling in as well.

“I think it’s been a really unique kind of week and also good to get some hitting variety. We all understand the situation that we’re in and we’re just trying to do all the right things.”
