But the text message Barty received from the 67-year-old Grand Slam champ which all but saved her tennis career has now been revealed.

'There's more opportunities for kids to play tennis, both male and female, and I hope we can continue to create those opportunities and let kids know that this is an option for a career. And even if it's not, it's a sport that they can play for life.'

In turn, Goolagong Cawley and her husband Roger stayed up all night watching Barty's win and exchanging international calls, and passing on their congratulations to the new star in Paris.

'Ash has already heard from me and knows how happy I am for her and her lovely family,' Goolagong Cawley told SBS.

Goolagong Cawley has mentored Barty for the past five years, and the two of them regularly speak on the phone and text each other.

'I'm not that little': Height no issue for Barty in Wimbledon quest

'I'm not that little': Height no issue for Barty in Wimbledon quest Despite her lack of height, the Queenslander's record on grass is more than respectable and she considers it her favourite surface to play on. In 2011 she won junior Wimbledon and was victorious at the Nottingham Open last year in addition to reaching the decider at the Birmingham Classic 12 months earlier. Barty credits the coaching she received from junior mentor Jim Joyce in in Brisbane for giving her the solid platform for success on all surfaces. ‘‘But I’m not that little. I was very fortunate that my coach developed this game and created this game that was technically sound,’’ Barty said.

She went on to be inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame and the International Tennis Hall of Fame, but then lost all contact with the sport once she retired, and stopped watching the game altogether.

But then in 2011, up-and-coming youngster Ash Barty reignited Goolagong Cawley's love of tennis when she won the girls' title at Wimbledon at the age of just 15.

Goolagong Cawley watched Barty compete at the Australian Open, and saw her as an inspiration for other indigenous players.

On International Women's Day this year in March, Barty said Goolagong Cawley inspired her in both tennis and life since she was a kid.

'Evonne's outstanding achievements and her passion for helping the indigenous community are two things I admire. I feel grateful for our friendship.'
