Making Us Aussies Proud!
Something for Australians to smile about, Ash Barty has won her very first Wimbledon singles crown overnight, beating Karolina Pliskova to the title, taking the crown in a 6-3 6-7 6-3 victory.
As Pliskova’s final swing fell short, Barty was overcome with emotion as she took in her success, the crowd erupting in cheers.
Barty is the first Australian woman in 40 years to achieve the title which comes on the 50th anniversary since her idol Evonne Goolagong won the title back in 1980.
