The second set was an absolute masterclass from Ash. So proud of our girls for this effort in just their third tournament together, and Ashleigh really reads the game of doubles very well. Just inexperience and tightness setting in in the crucial moments, especially from Casey
Hope this team continues to play together! I think both are scheduled to play in Pattaya City so it would be awesome to see them team up again there but I wouldn't be shocked if they both withdrew
To think, a year ago they were at the finals to lose to Sveta and Vera. These former "MM doubles champs" have come so far. Nobody saw them winning 3 slams or becoming the dominate team they were last year. These girls are great examples of you can perform well in singles and doubles consistently.
