"All the clay court season it takes a lot out of me".
Barty plays tricky Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck, who knocked out then defending champion Garbine Muguruza previous year in the second round, for a place in the last 32.
So it's fair to say, day two at Wimbledon had a lot to live up to. "I just go out there, have fun, play the game how I want it to be played", he said.
Meanwhile, in the women's draw, 2017 champion Garbine Muguruza lost 4-6, 4-6 to World No. 121 Beatriz Haddad Maia.
"For that many guys to lose early. yeah, it's just too many, " said Federer.
The third set tiebreak was a classic, swinging both ways, though with Kyrgios always seemingly on top, which made his fourth set collapse even more inexplicable. Dan Evans cruised through to the second round with a 6-3, 7-6, 6-3 win over Argentine Federico Delbonis.
Following Federer on Centre Court was Serena Williams, looking to fare better than sister, Venus, yesterday.
Former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych was another high-profile first round departure, the veteran Czech going down 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 to American Taylor Fritz, who on Sunday won his first ATP Tour title at Eastbourne. When that happens, he's a very risky opponent.
Kyrgios was brilliant and times and bewildering at others as he continually talked to himself and the crowd while attempting numerous "tweeners" with very little success. Then, lead in hand, he went away for the 18-minute fourth set, outscored 24-5 in points.
But he regained his composure to win 6-1 in the fifth.

A shaken Nadal quickly recovered his equilibrium to post a comprehensive 6-3 6-1 6-3 victory.
Kyrgios, who stunned Nadal as a 144-ranked wildcard on his tournament debut in 2014, put in a typically raucous and charismatic display on Court 3 where he fired 23 aces and 63 winners.
Five years on, their relationship is far from great. "That my question", said Kyrgios, as he snapped back at his inquisitor in packed main press conference room at Wimbledon.
"I don't know him (Nadal) at all".
"We have a mutual respect - but that's about it, I think".
During his win over Thompson, Kyrgios was heard complaining about someone in the stands being too loud, and also hit out at a person with a large camera because the sun was reflecting off the lens.
It was a busy day for Brits - and one with more positive than negative results. He pulled it together in the decider, losing just one game as he closed out the match and Kyrgios jousted with another journalist who asked what the reason was for his dramatic turnaround.
Katie Swan also fell at the first hurdle as they lost 2-6, 4-6 to German Laura Siegemund.
