Tennis Champ Barty Celebrates with Australian Players

Tennis world No.1 and reigning French Open champion Ashleigh Barty is gearing up for her Wimbledon tilt but that didn't stop her from coming to Lord's for Australia's blockbuster clash against England which they won by 64 runs and cemented a spot in the semifinals.

After Aaron Finch scored a solid century, Jason Behrendorff and Mitchell Starc dismantled England's strong batting lineup to propel Australia to an easy win over their arch-rivals.

Barty took to Twitter to thank Australian coach Justin Langer and skipper Finch for inviting her.

Barty was then also invited to the players' change room after the match, where she clicked pictures with quite a few Australian players.

Barty won her first major Grand Slam title this year as she defeated Marketa Vondrousova in the French Open final. Just two seasons back though she was a part of the Women’s Big Bash League representing Brisbane Heat.
