Melbourne, VIC, 31 December 2019 |

Ash Barty’s glittering 2019 has ended with the world No.1 being showered with awards and honours recognising her achievements both on and off the court.

The 23-year-old Queenslander won close to 20 awards from a variety of organisations and bodies, with the bulk coming in October, November and December as she wrapped up her breakthrough season.

In 2019, Barty rose from world No.15 to No.1 after winning four titles, the biggest of those coming at the French Open — her first Grand Slam singles title.

She ended the year by winning at the prestigious WTA Finals in Shenzhen, a victory earning her the biggest prize money cheque in the history of professional tennis.
