WTA Finals champion Ashleigh Barty: "It has been a remarkable year tonight was about coming out and fighting to the end. I couldn’t be prouder. It has been an incredible year.
“It was a slow court so I had to take chances and shift position more. I had to take chances even if it meant a few more errors.
"I’m proud of myself and the team, we tried to put ourselves in the biggest situations and occasions and we managed to do that.”
