Ashleigh Barty Wins Maiden Australian Open Title, Beats Danielle Collins

Ashleigh Barty became the first Australian woman in 44 years to win a Grand Slam title at home after she defeated Danielle Collins 6-3 7-6 at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.

The World No. 1 Barty won the contest against Collins 6-3, 7-6 in one hour and 15 minutes to etch her name into record books.

The victory also gave Barty her third major title – after French Open in 2019 and Wimbledon in 2021 – and her 15th career title. She joins the legendary Serena Williams in an elite list of only two active players to have won a Grand Slam title on three different surfaces.

Barty said, “First, I have to say congratulations to Danielle and her team I know you will be fighting for many more in the future. You guys have been nothing short of exceptional. You relaxed me and forced me to play my best tennis.”

“This is just a dream come true. I’m so proud to be an Aussie.”

“I really admire you as a player… This is most of the players’ favourite grand slam,” says Collins along with thanking the medical staff, coach, and her boyfriend.

Ash Barty’s victory has ended Australia’s 44-year wait for a home winner since Chris O’Neil won the women’s title in 1978.
