# Tennis: Women’s world number one Ash Barty has topped a brilliant year on the court with the news of her engagement. She said yes to long-term partner Garry Kissick. The 25-year-old Australian announced the news in an Instagram post. The couple met in 2016 and he was in the stands when Barty fulfilled her childhood dream by winning Wimbledon earlier this year. She also won the French Open in 2019 and became only the fifth woman to cling to the number one position for three consecutive seasons.
