Anyone else watching?
Barty is up 3 games to 0 in the first set. Great start!
Yep watching it here - happy to be in Perth as it’s only 9:30 ish so I’ll probably last the distance 😊
Barty is all over her like a bad rash!
First set to Barty - 6 games to 3! I’ve been surprised (but pleased) how one-sided the game has been.
Much less stressful viewing experience when it’s like this.
Getting a bit more stressful now - Pliskova up 5 games to 4 in the second set.
Dammit I spoke too soon!
Pliskova won the second set in a tiebreaker.
If I was the sort who bit my nails, I wouldn’t have any left!
This is stressful!
Woohoo! 🥳 🎉
She did it! 🥳 🎉 🏆️ The first Australian woman to win Wimbledon since 1980.
Not quite as easily as we might have thought in the first set, but a great win nonetheless.
Congratulations Ash Barty!
Thank goodness I stayed uu for that! What a game!
And she didn’t mention Margaret Court once. Good!
I had to go to bed halfway through but woohoo! So happy for her, loved her speech afterwards.
