Ashleigh Barty had the best start to the 2022 season possible when she went on an 11-match winning streak.

The Australian started with a triumph in Adelaide and then won also in Melbourne at the 2022 Australian Open. Moreover, she didn't lose any set on the way to her career's last Grand Slam title, as Barty retired a few months later.

During her journey in her native Australia, Barty faced players only from three countries. She started against a Ukrainian, then she beat two Italians and finished off by defeating four Americans in a row.

Do you know who were those players? Test your knowledge in our quiz, and if you forgot anything from her victory on the home courts, read our summary down below.

Ashleigh Barty's 2022 Australian Open Triumph Summary:

Ashleigh Barty has been the dominant force on the WTA Tour prior to this tournament, and no one seemed to be capable of challenging her, and that proved to be true only a few rounds in.

In the first three rounds, the Australian bested Lesia Tsurenko, Lucia Bronzetti, and the 30th-seeded Camila Giorgi without losing a single set before facing four American players in a row.

First, she bested Amanda Anisimova, then, she overcame the 21st-seeded Jessica Pegula, before dispatching also Madison Keys, once again, all in straight sets.

And if the 27th-seeded Danielle Collins thought she would be able to challenge Barty in the final, she was wrong as the top seed cruised to yet another straight-sets victory, winning the 2022 Australian Open without losing a single set.

It was one of the most dominant tournament wins of her career, and soon, fans would learn that it was also Barty's last tennis tournament win ever, as she had decided to retire from tennis at the age of 25.
