Barty became the first Australian to be named WTA world No. 1 since Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1976, and recorded the most matches won on tour this season, with 57, reports Xinhua news agency.

Barty also advanced to the quarterfinals at the Australian Open and the round of 16 at both Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, becoming the only player to reach the second week at all four Grand Slams in 2019.
