Good news. This pretty much confirmed she has a Hobart and AO main draw WC

The good news is all those players are in poor form.

Unlike players Ash played this year like Vinci and Tatishvili who are in the form of their lives, Kvitova, BMS who was in good form before getting injured.

Re: Ashleigh Barty

She's never beaten a top 100 player so it might be a big ask but I'd love to see her beat atleast one of them.

^ True but I will not really hold it against her at this point . I doubt she will one during Hopman Cup but she will do her best.

Re: Ashleigh Barty

Let's all just hope Bernie's antics don't rub off on her.

Re: Ashleigh Barty

^ In 1999 a 16 y/o Jelena Dokic made a name for herself at HC. After being beaten by Amanda Coetzer she smacked Sanchez-Vicario, Testud and Asa Carlsson (I think) to lead Australia for their only win at the event. She partnered another 'bad-boy' of Oz tennis, Mark Phillipousis.

A few similarities here. Most probably it ends here, but one can dream that Ash may go on a Jelena-run and sweep all before her..... lol

There's more to life than just being happy.

Was the first Hopman Cup I ever watched. Always exciting seeing young up and comers and Dokic wasn't the only one. A young unknown Roger Federer played in that tournament as well, and it was the first time I really took notice of him. Followed Fed closely from that point onwards.

Re: Ashleigh Barty

Phew, Tomic managed to win his rubber against Haas so hopefully that puts Barty at ease.
