Ashleigh Barty has inferior defensive champion Elina Svitolina to say the elite season-ending championship and therefore the biggest money prize in lawn tennis history, a cheque for $US6.4 million.
Barty beat Svitolina 6-4, 6-3 in Shenzhen to become the primary world No.1 to win the WTA Finals series since Serena Williams 5 years past, and therefore the initial Australian since Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1976.
“Just being within the same sentence may be a little impressive,” Barty says of Goolagong Cawley.
“We’ve had some pretty special moments this year and I would like to reach a number of the opposite accolades similarly that Evonne had. She’s an out of this world individual.
“It’s been the foremost unimaginable year on behalf of me. it has been an out of this world new era in women’s lawn tennis and to play ahead of this spectacular crowd has been wonderful.
