It only took the 23-year-old took just 70 minutes to dispatch Czech youngster Marketa Vondrousova 6-1, 6-3.

"It's unbelievable, I'm a little bit speechless, it's incredible, I played the perfect match today," Barty said on court.

"I'm so proud of myself and my team, it's been a crazy two weeks."

It really was the perfect match. Just like her semi-final yesterday, Barty raced to a 4-0 lead and was able to close out the set without trouble

While the Queenslander faced a bit more resistance from Vondrousova in the second, Barty didn't get rattled and stood firm.

It was the Australians first single major final, having already won a women's doubles title alongside CoCo Vandeweghe at the US Open last year.

Barty is also the first Aussie since Sam Stosur, who won the US Open in 2011, to win a major singles title.

Not only will she take home some new shiny silverware but Barty will also rise to a career-high of world No.2 when the new rankings are released. It will be the highest ranking of an Australian woman since Evonne Goolagong Cawley was No. 1 in 1976.

Up next for Barty is set to defend her Nottingham Open title with the event to start on Monday.
