Fila’s tennis stars ended the year on a high: World #1 Ashleigh Barty (top) ended her dominant season by winning the WTA Finals singles championship in Shenzhen and Timea Babos won her second consecutive WTA Finals doubles crown alongside partner Kristina Mladenovic.
2019 has been an exceptional year for Barty, the 23-year-old Australian, who entered her first-ever Grand Slam quarterfinal in Melbourne in January, broke into the Top 10 for the first time in March, won her maiden Premier Mandatory title at Miami, captured her first Grand Slam trophy at Roland Garros in May and became the World #1 ranked player in June.
The WTA Finals victory is Barty’s fourth overall of the year and the seventh singles title of her career, in addition to 10 career victories on the doubles circuit.
This win was the third overall WTA Finals victory for Babos (above), and her second consecutive title with partner Mladenovic. She also won the trophy in 2017, partnering with Andrea Sestini Hlavackova.
