7 Reasons Why Ash Barty Is The Hero 2019 Needs
Ash Barty. Ashleigh Barty. The Barto. Who is this name you keep hearing around?!
Well, it’s time we educated you as to who the wonderful Ash Barty is and why she is the hero we need in 2019.
1. She won the French Open
At 23-years-old, this is a pretty big title to take out. Ash had a stunning triumph on June 9 as she became the first Australian to win a French Opens singles title in 46 years. Talk about an achievement!
Upon winning the biggest match of her career, she put her hands on her head in disbelief and dropped to her knees. We love a humble queen.
2. Ash has been sloggin’ away for years
She may be young, but she’s been working hard for this victory. As they say, there is no such thing as overnight success and Ms Barty is the epitome of this sentiment. She’s been swinging a tennis racquet since the age of four, ‘quickly’ accelerating through the ranks to superstardom. In 2011, she was ranked No. 2 in the world after winning the girls’ singles title at Wimbledon. She was 15. How does that make you feel?
3. She's a role model for young kids
Yeah the girls! Ash is a stellar role model for younger girls as an inspiring sportsperson, fitness exemplar and demonstrates perfect sportsmanship. She shows girls (and boys) that if you set your mind to it, you can definitely do it. We’re sure she’d be the type of girl who’d have time for a little hit with you if you ever ran into her on the court.
4. Regional Aussie girl making it big.
Ash is from Ipswich, QLD. Whilst not the smallest of towns, it’s certainly not the biggest of cities with Ash often commuting to train closer to Brisbane and the Gold Coast. It doesn’t matter where you live, you too can get your grand slam title if you’ve got the dedication and passion.
5. She’s not a one-trick-pony.
Ugh, this girl has too much talent. Not only is she a superstar at tennis, she’s also a former cricket player and is also pretty pro at golf. It really makes you wonder if Barty ever stops? Well kids, the world’s your oyster really.
6. She loves a good coffee – same.
If you check out Ash’s Insta, she posts numerous pics with her one true love, coffee. The coffee connoisseur enjoys a good espresso macchiato or even a little bit of a latte… and she’s gone to barista school to learn to whip up her own javas in the morning. Again, skill upon skill upon skill.
7. She’s got some cute as heck doggos – and she’s ambassador for the RSPCA
She’s the proud mum of two adorable doggos, Affie and Chino. They are possibly the fluffiest puppers you’ll see today – just look at them.
To top it off, she’s also an ambassador for the RSPCA. Talk about superwoman!
Now get your Google on and check out Ash Barty for yourself - her name will be around for a while we think.
