Aussie Fans Are Frothing Over This Video Of Ash Barty At The Footy With A Beer-In-Hand

Ash Barty is an Australian legend.

And fans are absolutely loving this latest footage of the world number one in action.

While Barty's tennis rivals were going toe-to-toe at the French Open, she was watching the footy with a beer-in-hand.

How bloody good!

The 24-year-old made headlines recently after declaring that she would not be defending her French Open title at Roland Garros this year.

Citing coronavirus travel restrictions and a lack of training as her reasons for opting out of the tournament, Barty decided to remain at home in Australia instead of heading over to Europe.

And while her opponents were competing at Roland Garros, Barty Party was at the Gabba cheering on the Richmond Tigers against the Brisbane Lions while enjoying a beer.

Incredibly, the Aussie sensation hasn't played a competitive game of tennis since February but has managed to retain her world number one ranking.

And with Simona Halep's fourth-round defeat at the French Open over the weekend, it looks like no one will be catching her anytime soon either.

Just remember, she hasn't played in eight months.

And while her achievement of retaining the number one ranking is impressive, it was her cameo appearance during the AFL which really got people excited.

ABC News' Michael Rowland posted a video of Barty, captioned: "Can you love this woman any more?!"

While 3AW's Jake Bourke tweeted: "Ash Barty. Australian icon."

And Getty photographer Ryan Pierse said: "Biggest Ash Barty celebration ever caught on camera and it's at the footy with beer in hand while the French Open is on. Outstanding."

But it was AFL reporter Daniel Cherny who perhaps summed up Barty's feat best.

He tweeted: "Imagine if you'd been told in January that Ash Barty would watch an AFL final in person while the French Open - of which she is defending champion - was going on simultaneously."
