Good win for Ashley!! Nice way to end the losing streak to Craybas after losing 3 in a row :o Also her first convincing win in awhile.. she usually struggles to win maindraw WTA matches.

Next up is Dementieva ( Nooo! :fiery: ).. Ashley needs the win more though, so good luck ;)

Another bad matchup for the higher ranked player.
They both move well but Ashley has more margin of error on her shot.
It paid off today. If she can be aggressive against Dementieva and not lose serve early in the sets, then she has a nice chance to beat Dementieva.

Wooowww very surprising. Well all I can say is very well done Ashley. Keep up the good work:D.

Great win Ashley ! :)

what a great match for ash! it's really a great opportunity for her, as well. dementieva (who i'm a fan of) is beatable, especially now.

:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

Go Ashley!

I agree, I love Elena too but if Ash can keep it in the court, serve better than Dementieva, and pick her oppurtunities to go for it, she has a great chance...may the better player on the day win!

OMG ASH!!!! :bowdown: :woohoo:

This is such a great win for her at this tournament :kiss: Bring it to Dementieva and take her down :bounce:

:lol: Ashley kicked her butt! :D

Too bad she has to face the Power of Dementieva next. Wish I could watch that match. :hearts:

Ash :hearts:

A win over Dem would be :eek: Don't like the chances really, but prove me wrong.

Ashley looks so bad in pictures but she's so pretty on TV :lol:

Aug 2nd, 2006, 06:50 AM
Big opportunity for Harkleroad. Of course the outcome rests firmly on the way Elena plays but considering it's her first match on hard for quite a while it wouldn't be a shock for her to put in a poor peformance.

We shall see - i wish i could be at the match :drool:

Aug 2nd, 2006, 08:52 AM
ashley needs the momentum

Aug 2nd, 2006, 08:57 AM
That's a great win. She needs some confidence boosting wins as her ranking is set to fall out of top 100 this week. I think she'll get smoked by Elena, but at least she got a win under her belt.

Ashley :eek:

Aug 2nd, 2006, 12:33 PM
Congrats Ashley :yeah:
Jill :hug:
