Ashleigh Barty Defeats Karolina Pliskova To Claim Wimbledon Title

Ashleigh Barty made history on Saturday by beating Karolina Pliskova to lift the Wimbledon trophy for the first time in her career. In doing so, she also became the first woman from Australia to win the title since 1980.

The match was exciting and both females lived up to expectations. Barty was slightly superior and was able to take a three-set win 6-3 6-7 (4-7) 6-3.

Although the final score is even, it is worth mentioning that the Australian had an overwhelming start, winning the first 14 points of the match.

Pliskova looked nervous and when she was 4-0 down she finally reacted to break her opponent’s serve. However, it was too late and it was only a matter of time before Barty took the first set.

In the second set, the Czech committed two consecutive double faults and that allowed Barty to break and take a 2-1 lead.

Although Pliskova did not give up and managed to level, Barty broke again for 6-5. The Australian served for the match, but nerves got the better of her and she was forced to play a tie-break which she lost.

In the deciding set, the Czech double-faulted and netted a volley which allowed her feisty opponent to break and slowly move towards her long-awaited second Grand Slam title.
