Ash Barty kept alive her dream of winning the women’s Wimbledon title on the 50th anniversary of fellow Indigenous Australian Evonne Goolagong Cawley’s first win by easing into the semi-finals on Wednesday morning (AEST).
The 25-year-old outclassed unseeded countrywoman Ajla Tomljanovic 6-1 6-3 to set up what promises to be a tough assignment on Thursday when she faces 2018 champion Angelique Kerber.

“It’s the ultimate test,” Barty said. “Angie’s had success here before. I love that match-up. She knows her way around this court and I know I need to play well to give myself a chance in that match.
“This is a dream come true.”
