It's the cap I think

But they are quite different imo, Sam is an Aussie country girl and Ash is an Aussie urban girl. I don't know if that made any sense It's like Sam is shy and Ash is a footy supporter

Ash is more of a clown* as well I'd say. Sam has a sense of humor, but she's more shy and it's very understated, whereas Ash can be more extroverted when she wants to.

* btw: I mean this in a good way, she's funny

Re: Ashleigh Barty

She turned 17

I must admit I was worried before her FC match, because she has gotten the nerves and played badly in big matches before. But she delivered big time, even I'm impressed. Next couple of years will be exciting because she will have a big breakthrough in that time.

Her development has been really interesting to follow so far. When I first saw her I expected her to do well in WTA level immediately, but nerves, pressure and inexperience has stopped that and instead she made 30+ UE (inlc DFs) in almost every big match. But slowly her confidence is rising and she's getting used to it.


I just find it really interesting to follow how youngsters developed, having followed Tomic a few years ago as well. He jumped from 200 to 27 in just 1 year. Before that he struggled as well, he was losing in challengers oversees and his only good performance was at AO. And then suddenly BOOM he amazes with his performance against Nadal and then Wimbledon and platform is set for rest of year. I don't know much about Robson, but she was in a big slump before USO and suddenly a lot of good results after it. It's like sometimes it just clicks and the floodgates open for a youngster. Good stuff

Re: Ashleigh Barty

#34 in doubles this week. How awesome is that! There is no one else her age anywhere near her in the doubles rankings.
