In December, 2011, she competed with other Australian players for a Wildcard berth into the main draw of the 2012 Australian Open, and despite being the youngest player in the draw, won the competition and the Wildcard, beating established players including Casey Dellacqua, Arina Rodionova and Olivia Rogowska in the process.

2012Edit

Due to her strong results at the end 2011, Barty received a wildcard into the qualifying event of the Brisbane International (a WTA Premier tournament). There she lost in the first round to number one seed Vania King 1–6 2–6. Partnered with Casey Dellacqua, Barty also received a wildcard into the doubles tournament, reaching the semi-finals before bowing out to the American pairing of Spears and Kops-Jones 7–5 6–7(3) [7–10]. Barty then received a wildcard into the Hobart International, losing in the first round to Bethanie Mattek-Sands 2–6 2–6. Due to winning a play-off against other Australian players, Barty was given a Wildcard into the women's singles at the Australian Open, where she lost 2–6 6–7(4) to Anna Tatishvili in the first round. She also entered the women's and mixed doubles, pairing up with Laura Robson and Benjamin Mitchell respectively. Barty and her respective partners failed to make it past the first round in either event. In February, Barty won her first senior title at the Sydney $25,000 ITF tournament on hard courts, beating countrywoman Olivia Rogowska in the final. The following week she won her second straight ITF title at the Mildura Grand International on grass courts, beating countrywomen Viktorija Rajicic in the final 6–1 7–6(8). The following week she participated in the ITF event in Ipswich on clay courts, losing to Pole Sandra Zaniewska in the final 6–7(5) 1–6.

In May, after playing junior events across Europe, Barty received a wildcard into the main draw at the French Open, where she was defeated in the first round by fourth seed and eventual semi-finalist Petra Kvitová, 1–6 2–6. Barty then rebounded on the grass courts, winning the biggest title of her career to date at the $50,000 ITF event at Nottingham, beating Tatjana Malek 6–1, 6–1 in the final, as well as winning the doubles title with Sally Peers.
