Lovely stuff from Ash. Youngest player in quite a few years to win a Challenger event and turns her season around from 0-4 to 8-4. :worship:

I'm pretty sure Magdalena Kiszczyńska of Poland won 10k Olecko at the age of 15 years and 1 month ;)

She could be the real deal. The way she brished aside her opponents throughout this competiton is thoroughly impressive for a 15 year old! :)

I was just surprised because I didn't think that you'd have to look that far back to find a 15 year old winning a challenger. I would've thought that Azarenka, Wozniacki, Radwanska etc. would've won challengers when they were 15. But they didn't, so my bad. :shrug: I guess that says a lot about Barty's potential. :)

I think the last Aussie 15yo to reach a final was Dokic in Saga in 1998 (though she didn't win). Dokic also had to get there via quallies.

I asked same question before, someone said Nicole Vaidisova in 2004.

Tamira Paszek won aged 14 - as a qualifier - at Sofia 25k in 2005. And won a WTA MM the next year too.

Why not, let's hope for her good that it doesn't happen.
I was just trying to show you how unfortunate it is to associate early success with someone's full true potential. :wavey:

Don't forget that Aussie's challenger look more national or regional than international events.
Aussie + japonese = 75% of the field :lol:
