It is 1 step forward and 2 steps back with Ash. Ok you got your first GS win, then you follow it up with 1st round losses in qualifying against outside top100 players who do not like playing on grass. Ok you win the first set against Barthel and Cibulkova, then get bagel with breadstick.
Toughen the fuck up. I am so angry at this result. You can't put the blame on how well your opponent is playing, that means you need to play even better! Big stage? Yeah that's when you need to play your bloody best, not worst.
What's more is she just won a WTA title on grass, yeah it was doubles but it should have given her a lot of match play and confidence.
IT Sad mostly due too the scoreline but she still very young only 17 it an Learning Process for her & Plus she just won an Double title this year so some good has came outta grass season, For me I wasn't looking forward for her winning match in Slam because I know it hard on younger player but I want her too get more experience in the big event.
