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.
