Finally Ashleigh Barty!
The classy Australian wins her maiden slam title at the French Open after dismissing Market Vondrousova in straight sets.
Ashleigh was just too solid from a mental point of view to win the first set 6-1 after leaving almost nothing to her young opponent. However, the 19-year-old from the Czech Republic managed to offer some opposition in the second set even if she was broken at in the very 1st game. Nevertheless, the Australian was too good to win the second set and match 6-1 6-3.
After this fortnight, Barty will be the new world no.2 also to lead the year to date rankings. Voundrousova will gain 22 places in the rankings to be the new world no.16.
This Roland Garros is Barty’s 5th title and the second of the year after Miami.
