Ashleigh Barty clinched her first Wimbledon title after beating Karolina Pliskova 6-3 6-7 (4-7) 6-3 in the women’s final on Saturday.
The world No. 1 raced through the first set but lost the second in a thrilling tie-break before recovering her composure to win the decider.
Barty is the first Australian woman to win the single’s title since her idol Evonne Goolagong Cawley won it in 1980.
