Not a kind draw for Ashleigh. Still, I think she can get the upset.

Vania's got this. No chance for Stosur's mini-me.

Hopefully Ash can keep the match competitive...I think Vania will have the experience to get the win. Although I thought she would be ranked high enough for direct entry :shrug:

I think Vania but this would be the perfect chance for Barty!

Go Ash :cheer:
I cheer for a win
But would be equally thrilled with a competitive loss :shrug:
Long way to go in her career, just hope to see the potential shown in the score line :cheer:

I think Barty can win this. She has nothing to lose in this qualifying. Worst case scenario, she loses, and she still has a main draw position at the Australian Open :shrug:

Having watched one of Vania's practices, she seems to be hitting the ball well, but she doesn't seem to be in great physical condition. I'm not sure if that's the norm for her, but that's the way it seems to me.

Ashleys a nice girl and I don't know enough about Vania but she seems nice too except that Christian priest? controversy thing.

Go both girls :)

This is a very interesting matchup. Ashleigh could win if she plays really well, imo. :)

Vania. Barty is a bit overrated, but i'd like mistake.

Simple: if Ashleigh plays as well as she did in the wild card contest at the Australian Open she will pull the upset.

Vania is absolutely my sentimental favorite, although I can always appreciate an upstart phenom. As for the pirest scandal thing, VANIA was perfectly nice. The fact that some lunatic was stalking/throwing biblical shade at her and her family is in no way Vania's fault.

Queen Vania in 2.

Is there that much stock in those wins at the WC? With a must be tired Dellacqua, and really no pressure on her and Rogowska?

I take the straight set loss to Glushko at the USO Qualies a higher indicator.

I expect Vania in straights.

I need to watch Barty. She's been getting hyped more than Robson. I hope she impresses me.

If Vania plays smart she'll beat Ashley. She's not use to the kind of players who give a lot of different things.

Ahsley sure can win tho if she plays at her best, she just can' have any down moment

i think ashleigh can win but she really cant have any lapses in concentration. If she stays focused and plays her best tennis she'll have a shot

Normally I would have picked Vania without a doubt, but her last singles match on tour was a long time ago and she can be a bit rusty in her first match. I say Vania in 3.

c'mon Vania destroy this lil' bitch :o

She's 15 years old and to my knowledge is always respectful and well behaved on and off court. Do you really think this kind of comment is appropriate?

I need to watch Barty. She's been getting hyped more than Robson. I hope she impresses me.

The only thing that impresses me is that she seems to have all the shots. Her FH is going to be a weapon, BH seems reliable and can slice, not afraid of coming forward and mixing it up either. Ultimately I think her height (therefore how good her serve can become) will be the deciding factor in how well she actually does in her career.

She's still very raw though, and her movement is nowhere near as dynamic as Henin - though I think it's headed in that direction.

EDIT: +Mental. She lets nothing phase her, just gets on with it. That said, I've never watched a match where she's losing :lol:

Mini-Stosur FTW Dellacqua is a better player than King :shrug:

Well they're calling her the next Legend, so she basically has to show me she is the one of the most talented players to ever grace a tennis court.

Belinda Bencic is the second coming :bowdown:
