Second $25,000 title in a row for 15 year old Barty. :)

This must be somewhat unprecedented for a player so young in the modern era? Two pro titles in a row at 15? Particularly these days when the average age of pro players is rising so much.

Her results this year should be very interesting to follow.

Was a little concerned about her start to the year, I thought it might have dinted her confidence but winning these two titles back to back.... and particularly the ease that she did it with suggests she's probably going to be ready for the big time sooner rather than later.

What's really impressive about Ashleigh is her attitude. She seems to have a better head on her shoulders at 15 than most WTA pros. It would come as very little surprise if she ended up doing a Casey Dellacqua and cleaning up in every Aussie 25K this fall. We'll probably see her in the top 150 by the end of the year.

Well, with WTA/ITF age rules, Ash won't compete in ALL the Aussie 25ks. Which, on these results, is probably lucky for some of the other girls...

13 match winning streak and lost only one set and only stretched to a tiebreak once! :cheer:

Awesome. Well done to Viki Rajicic too - her first ITF final - another good Aussie junior, only 17 and has moved quickly into the top 500.

Barty seems to be living up to the hype so far.

Well Done to her.

Will be interesting to see if she just keeps on moving up and up or has a few stutters along the way

:wavey:

Two 25ks this week.

Russia, first two seeds in qualifying ranked 375 and 380

Australia, first two seeds in qualifying ranked 353 and 370.

While it is correct to say that Australian 25ks later in the year are weak, these particular 25ks earlier on in the year are on par with the other 25ks that are happening around the world.

Well what do you expect? Top 20 players to be playing in $25,000s or something? :spit:
