Barty, the top-seeded player, adds this title to the one she won in the French Open 2019.
Since Evonne Goolagong's 1980 victory, she is the first Australian woman who has won the All England Club singles trophy. Barty claims she was inspired by Goolagong's dress that she wore at Wimbledon as a tribute to it when she won the tournament in 1971.
Barty, 25, who was the Wimbledon junior champion a decade back, quit the tennis tour in 2014 due to burnout and returned home for almost two years. After playing professional cricket in her home country, she decided to return to her other sports.
It was a good call.
She played well at the start of each set against Pliskova (eighth-seeded, 29-year-old Czech Republic player with a big serve).
Pliskova fell to 0-2 during major finals. She was also the runner up at the 2016 U.S. Open.
Barty's biggest wobble was in the second set. Barty won the set 6-5, but she failed to sail consecutive forehands in order to break them. She then became shaky during the tiebreaker, which she conceded with a double fault.
Barty won the third set, 3-0, and took an early break. She was the first Wimbledon women’s final to be played in three sets since 2012. It was also the first match since 1977 between two players who had never been this far at the All England Club.
Pliskova and Barty failed to make it past the fourth round of the grass-court major at the grass-court major up until this fortnight.
