Ashleigh Barty is a multi-talent with the ball. The 25-year-old Australian tennis star played professional cricket for more than a year since 2014 and won the Brookwater Golf Club golf tournament in his native country last year. On Thursday, the world number one player reached the final of Wimbledon for the first time.
In what she says is one of her best matches to date, Barty won against German Angelique Kerber in two sets: 6-3 and 7-6(3). On key points, the somewhat cumbersome tennis star displayed his extraordinarily varied playing style and superb ball feel. He converted hard topspin balls with his forehand with sensitive slice backhand winners.

‘Are you serious? He’s got a really great shot,” the greatest golfer of all time saw him at work. And men’s club champion Louis Dobbler was impressed too. “I’ve seen a lot of athletes switch to golf, but Ashley’s out standing. The way she hits the ball reveals a lot.
pure tennis stroke
With the same clean stroke, but with a tennis racket in hand, she set the game on center court on Thursday against three-time Grand Slam winner Kerber. Barty was tested, especially in the second set, when she lost the games 5–2. But by stabbing her in the throat, Barty showed why she’s been number one in the world for nearly two years.
He took the set to the tiebreak without any fear and with the necessary courage and confidence. He hit 38 winners and made only 16 unnecessary errors. Figures that summarize the story of the party well. “Angelique brought out the best in me today,” she said politely.
