Ash Barty beat American Danielle Collins 6-3 7-6(2) to win her first Australian Open title on Saturday.
World number one Barty's victory ended Australia's 44-year wait for a home winner since Chris O'Neil won the women's title in 1978.
The World No. 1 Barty won the contest against Collins 6-3, 7-6 in one hour and 15 minutes to etch her name into record books.
The victory also gave Barty her third major title - after French Open in 2019 and Wimbledon in 2021 - and her 15th career title. She joins the legendary Serena Williams in an elite list of only two active players to have won a Grand Slam title on three different surfaces.
