Australian Olympic family joins the #BartyParty

9 June 2019

TENNIS: The name Ash Barty is on everyone’s lips today after the 23-year-old won her first singles Grand Slam title at the French Open overnight, defeating Czech Marketa Vondrousova 6-1 6-3.

Barty is the first Australian to win a major singles title since four-time Olympian Sam Stosur won the US Open in 2011. She’s also the first Aussie to win the Roland Garros French Open since Margaret Court in 1973.

The hashtag #BartyParty has gone viral on social media, with athletes, celebrities, politicians and fans all sending their congratulations to the young tennis superstar.

The Barty fever is particularly high among the Australian Olympic family, with Aussie Olympians and National Sporting Federations supporting Australia’s 17th female Grand Slam champion online.
