Ashleigh Barty is targeting world No 1 after winning the French Open at the weekend

Ashleigh Barty intends to keep “chipping away” at becoming the next world No 1 after winning her first Grand Slam singles title at the French Open.

The 23-year-old Australian was the class of the field in Paris, defeating Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova 6-1 6-3 in the final on Saturday.

Barty climbs to No 2 in the rankings, only 136 points behind top-ranked Naomi Osaka, and with her favourite part of the season – the grass – to come next.
