World Number one, Barty has revived the Australian tennis as she filled up the eight-year-old Slam-less drought of Australia after her French Open 2019 win. Sam Stosur was the last Australian to win a Grand Slam, which was during the US Open 2011 in New York and then Barty became a champion in Paris.
Within a few weeks after her maiden Slam title, Ashleigh Barty lifted up the title at Birmingham Classic and she conquered the summit of women’s tennis as she replaced Naomi Osaka from the World Number one spot.
The all-court player, Ash Barty’s 15-match winning streak was concluded in the fourth round of Wimbledon Championships 2019 as Alison Riske battled past the top-seed after trailing behind by a set. Barty will be seen in Toronto for the Canadian Masters and before the New York major, she will also play the Cincinnati Masters in Ohio.
The world was sighting on the 15-year-old, Coco Gauff’s journey into the second week of Wimbledon and her Friday evening battle against Polona Hercog was gazed by almost five million viewers, which included the former First Lady, Michelle Obama.
Gauff’s fairytale was ended by the ultimate Wimbledon champion, Simona Halep but her promising career on the WTA track remains intact.
Today, Cori Coco Gauff will play her opening round match at Citi Open 2019 against Zarina Diyas. She was the top-seed at the qualifiers and held straight-set victories against her qualifying opponents.
