Took until the second set to hold serve. The score was a very accurate reflection of how one sided this match was. Nerves got in the way, Barty is a very fitting champion. Well done Ashliegh.
You farkin beauty

Thread title change, … "The Ash Barty Uber APPRECIATION Thread"
Missed it live. Thanks for the commentary and late links. Awesome effort, Ash. Massive. Can’t recall the last time an Aussie lady won this event. Maybe, Court back in the 70s?
Bad luck Marketa, … just weren’t up for it on the day, maybe a bit overwhelmed.
Should get another chance.
Distinct lack of fanatics is very refreshing
They actually said 1st since Marg Court during the comm & interview.
Evonne won it in 71, Court won it in 73
This tournament has become flat as tack. No one there seemed to give two ■■■■■.
Regardless, great stuff from Ash.
Congratulations Ash well deserved, the first of many to come.
Also hearty congratulations to Dylan Alcott.
Both great Aussies to be proud of.
Glad I got up to watch- so happy for her. Great game & a really nice person! Someone we can be proud to call Australian. Congrats Ash!!
I didn’t see Dylan’s win - wish I had. Congrats to him also - another great Aussie!
Oh. Ye. Of. Little. Faith.
