Disastrous match from Ashley, I expected her to win a set or at least a few more games. :help:

Awesome job though, Roby! :)

Ashley :sad:

but on grass this is hardly surprising, she's always played horrible on this surface.

I'm not sure why Ashley sucks so on this surface, but nobody does it better.

Still, congratulations to Roberta.

Roberta is a great grass courter, no suprise with the result. I hope she can do some damage this year with her serve and volley game.

Ashley is dire on grass, this result is no surprise against a good grasscourt player like Vinci.

I don't think she's THAT bad on grass, she hasn't been doing too badly in the last two years, there are many worse players on that surface.

2006 - def. Kostanic Tosic 63 62, lost to Sharapova 62 62.
2005 - qualified, def. Hradecka, Obziler, Flipkens, then lost to Craybas 64 46 64 (Craybas def. S. Williams in straights a few days later)

Ashley relationship with her coach/boytoy is affecting her game for the worst. So many female players get involed with their coachs. This situation is the main reason players' fathers have taken over the coaching role(along with saving lots of money) when they are young.

Ashley played well under her coach/boyfriend instructions in the 2nd set against Venus Williams in Roland Garros

Ashley played well enough to lose early again. Of course she was going to lose this match to Venus, but she would have lost to pretty much anyone. At the start of her tennis career, she stated that Anna K. was an idol. Her management captialize on the comparision with her indorsement. It's so ironic this comparision is true.
