World No.1 Barty announces engagement to long-time boyfriend
Some brilliant news has come from Women's World No.1 and two-time Grand Slam champion, Ashleigh Barty who is now engaged to long-time boyfriend, Garry Kissick.
Barty met Kissick back in 2016 who has been by her side throughout her rise and after five years of dating, they are now engaged.
Posting on her Instagram, she just put the caption 'Future Husband' while Kissick posted the same photo with 'I Love You Ash Barty'.
Kissick and Barty's relationship has been kept mainly out of the limelight with the former only being seen at Grand Slam tournaments cheering on his girlfriend.
They are back together in Australia after spending most of the year apart with Barty's return to the tour seeing her away from home for most of 2021 due to harsh quarantine rules in Australia.
This prevented her taking part in the WTA Finals, won by Garbine Muguruza where she would have been top seed with the Australian Open seemingly her next focus.
