Re: Ashleigh Barty

Opinions differ. Some comments have gotten way out of hand, and people have let their emotions get the better of them. When it gets personal, it's not cool. But I also feel that others have taken the moral high ground (and that shits me just as much), and I seem to recall they too are not averse to sprouting negative comments in the past. Shit happens.
Anyway, I'm unsubscribing from this thread. Nothing more to say here.

^ yeah my point exactly. I didn't see anyone kicking a stink about Vicky getting called a lazy lesbian or whatever it was & other far more extreme things than Ash has copped. However double standards are something I'm used to around here

Anyway I'm gonna do the same & unsubscribe

She also politely tries to point out her recent achievements, which are considerable, which brings me to my second point:

In the past 18 months, she's won GS matches at RG and the US Open, reached 3 GS doubles finals and made the QF of the other slam. She's won 2 WTA doubles titles and sat inside the top 20 for the entire period. She's close to $1 million in prizemoney. Yes, her singles ranking is now below 200 but she's still inside top 200 on the race to Singapore. Her singles W-L is 18-9 this year and she's qualifed for 3 WTAs. In 18 months she's had 1 top 50 win and 2 top 100 wins.

If it wasn't for the WCs tainting her record, I'm sure you'd all be orgasming over her in the same way that most of you seem to orgasm over Storm Sanders despite Storm having nowhere near the results and record that Ash has.
Absolutely, she was simply saying that she is not worried that a few young players have already made it but she has not. She is doing it at her own pace.

Time is not an excuse, she's been in Top 200 for almost 2 years now. She has the talent. So the only explanation is not working hard enough.

Re: Ashleigh Barty

Im with Ash 100%, fans get so deluded into thinking tennis players should live and die tennis at all costs.
Ash is obviously a smart girl, she loves her tennis, she appears very happy. That is all that matters

Re: Ashleigh Barty

She lost 6-2 6-0 to Foretz Gacon in R1 of qualies last year... let's see if she can build on that.

Re: Ashleigh Barty

I totaly agree if she wins 3 matches in Q, she will gain some confidence+ a decent 1st round draw could do miracles for her career in term of confidence
