Wuhan R1: WTA Creche battle: Barty def Bellis 7-5 6-0

Ash Barty wins the battle of two of the youngest in the top 50. Steamed through set 2 to earn a match against a patchy Konta.

Ash seemingly not slowing down in what has been a stellar breakthrough year

Five-match losing streak for Bellis. The first real mini-slump of her career.

Creche? Barty is 21 and older than Ostapenko, Kasatkina, Osaka and Konjuh in the top 50 as well.

NID. Bellis doesn't have a weapon to hurt anyone. It's on her opponent's racquet. Every match.


Inspiration is for amateurs

Osaka isn't Top 50, but Vekic and Siniakova both are and are younger

Ashleigh played really solidly to win the last 9 games, after a rather shaky start. Bellis' injury seems to be affecting her a bit, maybe she should take a break. It's not like she's in good form.

If Ashleigh can cut out the UEs I think she will probbly beat Konta. She has the perfect game to take Konta apart.

Osaka is still in the top 50 for one more day!

Settle petals... "creche" implies a group of youngsters, so it doesn't exclude any of the players you mentioned. Ash is still young and there are only two ranked above her who are younger than her.

Ash was edgy in first set. After she won it, she played a lot more freely in second set.
Bellis kinda threw the match in the end, wild swings.

Bellis could have won this match. Courts are fast & she could have easily exposed Barty's movement. What a brat.

Cmon Cathy just wants to be back in Florida asap so she can have sex with Sam the whole time and share it on snapchat. Absolutely doesn't bother about winning. Genie Bouchard mentality this is.
