Here are all the ways to watch Ash Barty vs Karolina Pliskova at the Wimbledon 2021 women's final.

The world's number 1 female tennis player Ashleigh Barty has secured a place in the Wimbledon final against the Czech Republic's Karolina Pliskova. The 2 women will compete for the coveted Ladies' Singles Trophy on Saturday, and Aussie tennis fans couldn't be more excited.

It's the first time an Australian woman has reached the finals at Wimbledon since 1980 when Evonne Goolagong took home the silver plate. If you're keen to catch the match live in Australia, here's everything you need to know.

Wimbledon Ladies' Singles Final time

The Wimbledon Ladies' Singles Final will take place on Saturday, 10 July at 11pm AEST. Like all Wimbledon matches, it will be held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London on an outdoor grass court.

The Wimbledon Ladies' Singles Final will be broadcast live on the Channel 9 free-to-air channel 9GEM. (Previous matches were hosted by Channel 7, but Channel 9 snapped up the rights last year.)
