Barty returns the glory to tennis 'aussie' with his first big

In her first Grand Slam final, Barty (23) defeats the Czech Vondrousova (19) and rescues the Roland Garros title for Australia 46 years after she won Court.

Ashleigh Barty (23 years), the best player of the season by number of victories (31) and the most regular in terms of Grand Slams after reaching the quarterfinals in Australia and the final at Roland Garros, won in Paris at Marketa Vondrousova (19 ) to return to Australia the glory of past times, when the oceanic country was the great dominator of tennis. Barty, who beat the Czech by 6-1 and 6-3 in 70 minutes, is the first aussie to lift the title in the French major since she did 46 years ago (1973) the legendary Margaret Court. She had tried Samantha Stosur in 2010, but fell to the Italian Francesca Schiavone. Precisely she was the last winner of a Grand Slam for Australia, the US Open 2011.

Roland Garros will enter the name of the tenth different winner in the last 12 years. This has happened since the three consecutive titles of the Belgian Justin Henin in 2005, 2006 and 2007. Since 2008, Ivanovic, Kuznetsova, Schiavone, Li, Sharapova (2), Serena Williams, Muguruza, Ostapenko and now Barty have lifted the trophy in the City of Light.

To get it, Ashleigh, who he ended up abandoning tennis in 2014 to dedicate himself to cricket, he did not have to suffer too much against the young Vondrousova, who had already done a lot reaching the final without barely having passed before the fourth round in any big one. Barty almost tripled her opponent in winning shots (27-10) and broke her serve five times. It was the youngest final in the tournament since Ivanovic (20) and Safina (22) played in 2008. The player born in Ipswich, right-handed and 1.65, will break into the top-10 on Monday in a big way, with a jump to number two in the ranking, one step away from Naomi Osaka's one.
