Australian Ashleigh Barty, world number one, said it is incredible that Carla Suárez, her first-round rival at Wimbledon, has returned to the circuit after overcoming Hodgkin's lymphoma. The Canarian, who returned to compete at the last Roland Garros after more than a year away, will face Barty in the match that will open the center court for the women's team, after the defending champion, Simona Halep, left the tournament.

"It is an opportunity that very few people have, to open the center court. I am very proud to have this honor," said the Australian at a press conference. "It's amazing that Carla is back. It was exciting for the whole circuit that she could come back, she has great character and great resilience. She has been at the highest level for many years. It will be very good to open center court against her. I'm going to have to be at my highest level against her. Seeing her doing what she loves is wonderful, "he said.

On the possibility of returning to Wimbledon after two years, Barty noted that it is appreciated "as soon as you walk through the doors of the club." "It's a feeling that can't be taken for granted. It's special to be able to come back here and learn more about these tracks."
