Ash Barty wins Aussie battle to reach Wimbledon semis | Tennis News – Times of India


LONDON: World number one Ash Barty outclassed compatriot Ajla Tomljanovic 6-1, 6-3 to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals on Friday and set up a meeting with 2018 champion Angelique Kerber.
In the first all-Australian women’s Grand Slam quarter-final since the 1980 Wimbledon championships, the 25-year-old Barty produced a calm and composed display on Centre Court.
Tomljanovic, who battled past British wildcard Emma Raducanu the night before to reach her first Grand Slam quarter-final, was nowhere to be seen a one-sided first set.
But the 28-year-old did make more of a match of it in the second, breaking the Barty serve twice.
Barty always had another level though and ended Tomljanovic’s resistance in little over an hour.
