Ash Barty wins Roland Garros

23 year old Australian Ash Barty has won the French Open, 6-1 6-3.



bb Ash invites you to this post.






Ash stepped away from tennis in 2014 for a sabbatical where she played professional cricket.

Since she came back in 2017 she has gone from No 623 to World No 2 with this win.

Ash is the second ever Indigenous Australian woman to win a Grand Slam since Evonne Goolagong 48 years ago.

She was congratulated by everyone, including Russell Crowe.
