Congratulations Miss A.!

Updated: Aug 22, 2021

As Australians, our ecstatic thanks to Ashleigh Barty for her memorable win in the Wimbledon Ladies Singles Final tonight, with a 6-3, 6-7 (7/4), 6-3 victory over eighth-seeded Czech Karolína Plíšková.

You kept your mind on the task at hand despite some strange occurrences and distractions. A deserving win.

Good on you, Ash, for being who you are - the genuine article!

No pretension, just focussed determination in getting on with it under great pressure. And an ace so very close to the end!

A distinguished achievement that will go down in history.

Congratulations to 'Miss A. Barty', according to the name used on the Wimbledon Champions Honours Board, a very respectful way to acknowledge your win.

To our Ash!!!
