Australian tennis champion Ash Barty has announced her engagement to partner Garry Kissick.

Ipswich’s favourite daughter capped off a marvellous year taking to Instagram to reveal the delightful news.

She captioned a photo of the pair hugging with: “Future Husband.”

 

The 25-year-old could also be seen with a glamorous engagement ring.

The couple have been dating since 2016.

It’s been a wonderful year on the court for the World No. 1 as she won five WTA singles titles in 2021 including a maiden Wimbledon crown, following in the footsteps of her tennis idol Evonne Goolagong Cawley.

She also won a doubles bronze medal at this year's Tokyo Olympic Games with John Peers.
