Ash Barty Named ITF World Champ Of 2021

December 20, 2021 by

Aussie Ash Barty has been crowned with yet another stunning accolade as she looks back on a phenomenal year. Barty has been crowned the 2021 world champion of women’s tennis by the International Tennis Federation (ITF). The federation bestowed the annual end-of-year award on Barty on Thursday.

While no award had been made in 2020, Barty has managed to hold on to her position at the top of the women’s game following a year that saw her take an incredible five titles – including her second Grand Slam singles trophy at Wimbledon.

Crowned the men’s equivalent on Thursday had been world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who had been denied a calendar year Grand Slam in the US Open final by Daniil Medvedev. Djokovic nabbed 3 Grand Slam titles this year: Wimbledon, the Australian Open, and the French Open at Roland Garros.

Crowned the ITF’s Quad Wheelchair World Champion for the third year in a row had been Aussie wheelchair player Dylan Alcott. He won all four Grand Slams this year – as well as Paralympic singles gold in Tokyo.

Barty’s victory sees her joining a top list of multiple winners of the famous award, which has been handed down since 1978. Winning the prestigious award a record seven times had been Steffi Graff, who is joined on the all-time list of winners by six-time awardees Serena Williams and Martina Navratilova, three-time winners Martina Hingis, Justine Henin, and Chris Evert, and two-time award winner Monica Seles.
