While this was Barty’s maiden title at the All England club, Barty also became the first Australian woman to win Wimbledon for 41 years.

In a roller-coster match, Barty got off to a great start as she took a commanding lead, clinching the first set 6-3 against Pliskova. But the Australian player was made to wait for her maiden Wimbledon title, as Pliskova fought back to take the second set 7-6 (4), to take the Wimbledon final into the decider.

Pliskova fought back from a break down twice to win the second set, yet the 25-year-old Barty regrouped to become only the fourth junior Wimbledon champion to go on and win the women’s title.

The confident World No. 1 held onto her nerves as she took the final set 6-3 to lift her maiden Wimbledon title. Former World No. 1 Pliskova showed flashes of brilliance as she made Barty, who withdrew from the French Open last month with a hip injury, work until the end, but served it out, sealing victory when her opponent netted a backhand.

The Queenslander ended a wait for an Australian woman to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish that stretched back to 1980, when her mentor Evonne Goolagong Cawley won the title.
