TBE, I find it interesting that Ash's best results have come on clay.

Pf Meli :rolleyes:
I cursed her :sad:

Great job Ashley :) :)
Too bad for Sunitha :(
Harkleroad's best surface I think by far is clay, it suits her game really well. She's not like most Americans because she's more of a counter-puncher, doesn't have a weapon but everything is solid. She had her best results in juniors on clay and on the pro tour because she can't be overpowered.
Good luck Ashley, you've been playing well so far, so take the title!

I hope Ash can take the title tomorrow as it would give her confidence a HUGE boost. She showed alot of mental strength this week with some tough three setters.
ptkten...I agree that she has no weapon, but she will have to develop at least one if she wants to have a chance against the big hitters, even if its her net game. I read somewhere that she has been working on her forehand and I know she can get her serve into the 100's. only time will tell.
Best of lucK Ash:bounce:

May 12th, 2002, 08:55 PM
Czink d. Harkleraod 6-1, 5-7, 6-3
Poor Ash, I wanted her to win so that she could get that WC into Birmingham:sad:

I was right, Melinda congrats girl :)
she's moving up nicely , this will take her into Top 200
May 12th, 2002, 09:27 PM
Well done, Melinda :)
Too bad you couldn't get to FO qualies :(

After watching her play this week it is not surprising atall. What is surprising is that anyone could take her to three sets so Ashley must have made it a great final. Sorry I missed it. Yes Eggy, Melinda will go far and very quickly I think!

Great! Congrats to MELINDA!!! :D :D :D :hearts: :D
No more $10Ks for her, I'm sure! :angel:
