Australia's Ashleigh Barty wins her first Wimbledon title
Australia's Ashleigh Barty kisses the winner's Venus Rosewater Dish trophy after winning her women's singles match against Czech Republic's Karolina Pliskovaš.
The 25-year-old Australian -- who wore a specially-designed dress in tribute to Cawley's iconic scallop one she sported in 1971 -- adds the Wimbledon crown to her 2019 French Open title.
"I hope I made Evonne proud," said Barty.
Barty had looked like cruising to victory after soaring into a 4-0 lead over her opponent -- the Australian's start so blistering that she won the first 14 points.
However, Barty got the break early and with one or two wobbles she got herself over the line sinking to her knees, her hands over her face in disbelief.
She wiped a couple of tears away before climbing up to the player's box, just like her compatriot Pat Cash did when he won the Wimbledon men's title in 1987.
