I had no doubt about that after her AO match against Masha. Masha was playing superbly at the time, and Pebbles put up a really brave fight.

That first round loss at Vegas scared me a bit, though.

This was a really bad draw, but anything is possible. California girl Davenport will be motivated, I suppose, but motivation was never her strong suit. If Pebbles can hold her own and not be blown off the court, maybe she can drag it on for long enough for Davenport to run out of gas.

Zi was playing so well and now losing routinely to average players...she needs to get her confidence bac k as well as Jie...not a good season for the Chinese except for Na...

Zi seems pretty "average" to me. Good win Ashley! :bounce:

She's above average but I wasn't really referring to her loss to Ashley, only because she lost again...earlier this year she had been losing to not so good players, after winning a title at the end of last year...Ashley is solid and I like her!

Lots of "average" players have won a GS doubles title and the samething goes for beating Dechy. ;)

People always talk about Ashley not having much raw talent and that she won't go too far. What about other similar players on the men's side? Sure, she doesn't have a big game, but she never gives up and makes her opponent work for every point. I say Ashley can win a few titles in her career and maybe crack the top 20 at some stage.

Many people told that Ashley would have Anna Kournikova success, but she still hasn't :rolleyes:

Well, Ashley still has at least another 5 years to win a low tier title.

Many people also said that she would never play again. She proved them wrong on that one. Glass is more full then empty for Ashley at this point... :bounce:

well, please appreciate how much she's come through to be where she is today.
