Barty defeats Pliskova in Wimbledon women’s final

Top-seeded Ash Barty won her first Wimbledon title by defeating Karolina Pliskova in three sets.

Barty gathered momentum off a nervous Pliskova and then overcame a stumble to win 6-3, 6-7 (4), 6-3.

Eighth-seeded Pliskova didn’t earn a single point in the first three games and then double faulted to give Barty a 4-0 lead.

Barty served for the match with a 6-5 lead in the second set, but made several backhand errors that allowed Pliskova to recover.

The Australian took a 3-0 lead in the third set and defended her serve until the end.

It is the second Grand Slam title for Barty, who won the French Open in 2019.
