Stop talking trash about Barty, she may be unproven, but she'a quality player. Serving well, slicing well, with great volleys and a beautiful forehand. Lost to Halep in Madrid but even at Madrid confirmed a good form. At Paris, she fucking improved match by match.

Until talking crap about Barty, because she deserved a lot of credit, for Fed Cup (you aren't following that), Miami, French Open and even the Australian Open and Sydney... watch some tournaments with Ashley! I recommended you Miami, Fed Cup and even the French Open.

Barty is more complete than your favourite Sharapova ever was. Maybe you will explain us how to tennis works from the armchair.
Even with Sharapova's "incomplete" game, Barty couldn't even close her out easily, and Sharapova beat her convincingly in Rome last year. In AO, Sharapova was also in pain, serving slower than she ever has, and barely hitting with any pace and the entire crowd was against her. STILL, Barty has difficulty.

Leave Sharapova out of it. Just because a poster is a Sharapova fan, does not disqualify them from making a post on a Barty thread or any thread. It also should not automatically incite rebuttals from non-Sharapova fans citing "your favorite player, Sharapova". That is dumb. What did that person's comment have to do with Sharapova except for your shallow observation that they are fans of Sharapova?

^ two clever, nice and humble women.

Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?

Re: Wimbledon R4: Riske d. (1) Barty 3-6, 6-2, 6-3

Barty started the match with 4 nuclear bombs. wow..
Ace 15-0
Ace 30-0
Ace 40-0
Ace Game.
That got to scare the hell out of any opponent. Serena has done that closing out matches, but never in the game1. I think her best in game1 is 3 aces.
Barty's serve has become a real weapon. She just has to do something with that backhand. The Steffi-Graf-Slices are not going to cut it in today's game. One or two in a row is fine. Not 5, 6, 7 slices.
