Talking Harkleroad to return to WTA tour in Miami

Harkleroad to return to WTA tour in Miami
Ticker - Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Another new mom will return to the tour next week -- American Ashley Harkleroad has entered Miami with a protected ranking of No. 70. The former Playboy cover model took a leave from the tour in October of 2008 to have her first child, Charlie, with her husband and coach, Chuck Adams.

“I don't think I'm ready yet but I need to get jump-started on my tournaments so that I don't lose my protected ranking,” Harkleroad said at Indian Wells. “I’ve only been practicing hard for a month, but I'm hitting well and my movement is coming back slowly. I am excited about returning but I also love being a full time mom so I guess time will tell.”

The 25-year-old Harkleroad is allowed to play eight tournaments under her protected ranking and also accept wild cards. She reached a career high No. 39 in 2003. “I am hoping I’ll find my game and enjoy everything during the process. I have to try and see if I like tennis plus baby.”—M.C.

So she'll be in the MD? I thought it would have been on the entry list thread...

Re: Harkleroad to return to WTA tour in Miami



I saw yesterday that she was playing WTT, so wondered if she was to be back soon. It doesn't sound like she is quite ready but hopefully she can pull it back together before RG.

Come on ASH!!!

Practicing for a month and she even admits she's not ready.... Not real very good prospects there

Re: Harkleroad to return to WTA tour in Miami

Is it me or does she just seem *really* ambivalent about the whole thing?

Someone needs to rattle her cage if she's going to have any chance at winning main draw matches.

Great to see her back, even if she's going to struggle for the next couple of months getting her match form back.
