The decision reflects a change in course for Barty, who told reporters that she was planning to play after her loss at the in early September.

When asked if she would attend Indian Wells, she confidently said “Yeah, yeah, I’ll be there.”

It isn’t clear if Barty will end her season early or attend this year’s WTA Finals at Guadalajara. She was on the road from March to late September, and when the WTA announced plans to play this year’s WTA Finals in Mexico, at altitude, Barty’s coach Craig Tyzzer criticized the decision.

“Pressure-less balls absolutely fly. It’s a ball that, if you use it in normal conditions, it doesn’t bounce. It’s not the greatest advertisement for the best girls in the world to be playing something they’ve never done before,” Tyzzer told the Australian Associated Press. “[To play in] conditions they’ve never played, in a country they don’t play and at altitude, I just feel it’s ridiculous. “As a spectacle, it’s just frightening.” The Aussie originally had planned to play.
