Barty is the first woman from Australia to reach the title match at the grass-court major since Evonne Goolagong in 1980. The 25-year-old Barty won the 2019 French Open for her first Grand Slam title and will be eyeing her second major trophy.
Her opponent on Saturday will be No. 8 Karolina Pliskova.
Pliskova beat second-seed Aryna Sabalenka in three sets to move to her first Wimbledon final as she pursuits her first major title at the age of 29.
The Czech came from a set down after the Belarus player took the opener 7-5, and went on to win two sets 6-4.
Ashleigh, who will lead the Australian tennis contingent at the Tokyo Olympics this month, took an hour and 26 minutes to prevail over the German opponent.
Head-to-Head: Ash Barty leads Karolina Pliskova 5-2 in h2h count. Their most recent match was at the 2021 Stuttgart Open which Barty won in three sets.
