Wimbledon 2021: Ashleigh Barty Beats Karolina Pliskova To Win Title

Ashleigh Barty won her maiden Wimbledon title, defeating Karolina Pliskova in a thrilling final on Saturday.

Barty won the first 14 points to take early charge in a 6-3 6-7 (4-7) 6-3 win on the 50th anniversary of idol Evonne Goolagong Cawley’s maiden win here.

Czech Pliskova settled in the second set, rediscovering her big serve and breaking back when Barty served for the Championship before errors crept back in the third.

World number one Barty sealed her second Grand Slam title on her first match point when Pliskova netted a backhand.

The top seed is the first Australian woman to win the Wimbledon singles title for 41 years.
