Ashley Barty (25, Australia) has been holding the position for 1 year and 10 months since she was ranked No. 1 in the women’s pro tennis world rankings in September 2019. However, it was not recognized as the best in the world. To some extent, he was also responsible for himself. This is because he has not been able to win a major tournament, which determines a player’s status as much as in the world ranking, since he took first place. In each tournament, the winner was a player other than World No. 1 Barty, and Barty was treated only as a strong force in the ‘Spring and Autumn Warring States Period’ rather than a true strongman.

This Barty finally made it to the top of the majors. Barty defeated Karolina Pliskova (29, Czech, 13th) 2-1 (6-3 6-7 <4-7> 6-3) in the 2021 Wimbledon women’s singles final held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London, UK on the 11th. suppressed with After winning the first set easily, Pliskova allowed a counterattack, but he took the lead in the third set and eventually won.

This marks Barty’s second major win since the French Open in 2019. As an Australian player, she also enjoyed the joy of winning the women’s singles at Wimbledon for the first time in 41 years since Yvonne Goulagon in 1980.

He withdrew from the second round at the 2021 French Open last month due to a back injury. After about a month, he went to Wimbledon desperately, and made it to the finals by playing every game with a much more daring strategy than his usual stable play style. Afterwards, he pushed Pliskova in the final and eventually won the major at the top of the rankings. If we drive this momentum and continue to perform well in major tournaments in the future, we can create the ‘Bati era’ rather than the ‘Spring and Autumn Warring States Era’.

On the other hand, Pliskova, who climbed to No. 1 in the world rankings in 2017, but has no major championship history, and is labeled as ‘weak in big games’, collapsed at the decisive moment on this day as well, and he has to watch Barti’s victory, which was evaluated similarly to himself did.
