Apparently an issue is her size. Hopefully she still has some growth left in her, because the game clearly is going the way of the tall powerful female athlete.

Yeah but we've seen that smaller girls can make it. she's only 15 so hopefully she has a couple years to grow, she's about 5'4 right now.

Well girls tend to peak in their growth earlier than boys, so she would want to start growing quickly.

I don't know whether we've seen smaller girls make it. Other than Henin, there hasn't really been any small girls doing too much at the top of the game since Hingis. The odd one here and there has popped up briefly, but they are being overwhelmed by the bigger girls.

Re: Ashleigh Barty

Yeah she may stop growing at around 17-18. Hopefully she can still grow a little anyway..

Re: Ashleigh Barty

Cibulkova is about 3 foot tall and is doing OK. But she shows that you have to belt the absolute shit out of the ball to make up for it

Re: Ashleigh Barty

This is the first time I've seen her and she looks very promising.

I like her serve a lot. Very uncomplicated.
