ASH BARTY JOINS ELITE GROUP OF TENNIS GREATS

Jaguar ambassador Ash Barty has added to her impressive list of sporting achievements by being crowned as world No. 1 at the end of three consecutive years. After claiming five trophies in 2021, asserting her dominance on the court, this feat sees her join an elite group of some of the greatest names in tennis.

Just the fifth woman to achieve this coveted accolade, Barty has followed in the footsteps of tennis legends Steffi Graf, Martina Navratilova, Serena Williams and Chris Evert. She has spent 95 consecutive weeks at the top of the tennis rankings, with 102 weeks in total as world No. 1.

With wins in 2021 that included the Yarra Valley Classic in Melbourne, the Miami Open, the Stuttgart Grand Prix, and her dream title and second grand slam win at Wimbledon, Barty finished the year with a remarkable 42-8 record. Finishing the year on a high, and earning a place in the record books, Barty is in a strong position as she prepares for a big summer of tennis, culminating in her campaign to secure another grand slam title at the Australian Open.
