Ash Barty vs Marketa Vondrousova

If you predicted this final, I hope you bet big

Barty's form has been building nicely for a couple of years but I wasn't expecting a final.
I literally hadn't even heard of Vondrousova before this week, so no windfall for me today Sad

All I knew of Vondrousova before last week was her giving Tsurenko a tough match at the US Open last year. Apparently she won a tournament in 2017 in Switzerland and several clay tournaments when she was on the ITF tour. I knew she was a threat after the way she dismantled Sevastova.

I figured Barty was a contender from the start. Between Miami, Melbourne, and her spectacular Fed Cup play she looked like she could beat anybody if she was on. The bracket broke about as well as possible for her. Only one seeded opponent, Keys, who she beat the hell out of in Fed Cup play earlier this year.

Yeah, I agree she had about as cruisey a draw as you could ask for.

Ash Barty gave up on tennis in 2014 to take a shot at cricket. She represented Brisbane Heat in the Women's Big Bash League, before returning to tennis in 2016. Now she's a Grand Slam Winner!

-- First Aussie since Sam Stosur (2011 US Open) to win a GS title
-- First Aussie since Margaret Court (1973) to win the French Open

Barty is the ninth different woman to win a major singles title in the last 10 Grand Slam tournaments; six were first-time winners.
