Re: Ashleigh Barty

Her next goal was Top 20. I guess she needs to revise it 😁

I haven’t been this excited about her since first discovering her in 2012. She won AO WC Playoff and Nottingham 50k in dominating fashion, it looked like she was going to take the WTA tour by storm with amazing talent. But it didn’t eventuate and slowly things went downhill.

Now she is starting to live up to her potential, really looking forward to 2018 👍

If she finds further consistency and makes less UEs in matches, I don’t know what her true ceiling is.

Sad for Konta, but congrats Ash YEC in her first year back is really impressive
And looking at the Zhuhai field, she could go far too

Wow breaks into Top 20 sitting at home 😛

What a way to finish the year, icing on the cake Top 20 and Aussie #1

Re: Ashleigh Barty

Rybarikova and Gavrilova retired today, so Barty will be 19 or 20 if Goerges or Kasatkina wins Moscow

Re: Ashleigh Barty

I feel more optimistic now as well, given a few girls are in doubt of playing it.

As she is playing doubles in Singapore - for her to then play singles in Zhuhai would be a dream 2017.

It's possible for either Goerges or Kasatkina to win the tournament and overtake Ash, but neither of them are clear-cut favourites.

Gavrilova has a reasonably kind draw, but I think she will be tired, and making the final might prove to be a step too far.

Rybarikova also has to be tired, and is possibly carrying an injury. As mentioned in a post above her first opponent is Sharapova. If she comes through that match, she'll have to play Cornet. Not sure how Sharapova will play, but if Cornet plays how she did in the first round, I don't see Rybarikova making the quarters.

As you say, worst case scenario, Ash ends up at 22; but it actually won't come as a surprise if she manages to hold on to 19th though. I'm definitely feeling more optimistic now, than I was this time last week.
