Francesca's retirement is probably getting nearer and nearer

Well done Ashley on playing such a solid match, hitting plenty of winners and serving smartly!

All Fran has is some noise and a puff ball up centre court.

Ha... haha... hahahahahahahahaha

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Great work from Ash tonight. Lost a touch of focus at the start f the second set, but dominated from there on.

My goal this summer was to find two youngsters to support and I think I've found them both now

Fran was really out of sorts, and just sort of...blah. No energy, no game plan. no fight

Fran was taken by surprise in the 1st set. Ash was serving well and ripping winners from both directions. In the 2nd set, Fran tried to up the aggression, taking a lot more risks on her serves and shots, but ended up committing more errors.

A very mature performance from Ash. Well done.

So long...

Great win for Barty. I really hope she stays as grounded and humble. A star in the making for sure.

As for Fran, such a shame that she is struggling so badly. I think the French Open this year is looking more likely as her swansong.

Great win for Ashleigh
Not that shocking though, Schiavone has been sucking for a while now.

That 7 grand slam comment/joke was made by the interviewer, not Ash. Ash wasn't even allowed time to reply.

So long...

No Craig Wallace or whoever it is was being a muppet. Ash is actually a totally normal and relaxed person. She's like Stosur with confidence and a brain so I hope she doesn't get too much pressure heaped on her after this. Darren Cahill said it's going to be a long road yet so don't get too carried away.

lol woops my original post was really badly worded/punctuated. I was replying to oh yeah I guess talking about other people putting pressure on her after this win. Not attributing that quote to Ash.

Nid. Fran is just useless these days off clay against anyone half solid.

Really talented, and also seems to be a lovely person. She handled playing Serena tonight really well imo.
