I agree she has more confidence, less fragility. Though she serves well, Ash plays nothing like Sam. Not as powerful, but more variety and finesse. Good shots on the run.

So long...

Barty seems impressive. Sadly, Schiavone seems done.

Of course

She showed glimpses of greatness against Serena tonight just like Ash against Fran. Good for tennis that some of the young ones are starting to come through.

Gosh I hate comparing players but Barty plays a VERY similar game to Justine Henin (not as good yet). Both have fabulous backhands, powerful but erratic forehands and both use the net. Barty will win slams providing she continues to improve, but she needs to get physically bigger.

Being bagelled by Ivanovic and Barty is surely an invitation for immediate retirement. No one can love the game that much.

I love her a lot, but it's becoming painful to see Fran play these days

Barty surely is promising! So good on her.

This is not a reliable test for Barty. Take it in your head.
