Ellen is a 21 year old player from New Zealand who was making big strides up the rankings in late 2007/early 2008 and was closing in on the top 200. An injury put her out of the game for some time and she has only recently returned to the tour.

Re: Ellen Barry

Ellen recently used her protected ranking to play two 50K challengers in Japan. She made the 2nd round last week and this week she took out world no 186 and junior Aus open champ Karolina Pliskova and world no 277 Naomi Broady on her way to the QF's. She lost her QF match to the 2nd seed Nikola Hofmanova.

Another top 300 win. She is really picking up steam now and will move back into the top 500

Possible R2 match against 2nd seed Karolina Pliskova whom she beat in straight sets last week.

Re: Ellen Barry

Ellen qualified for a 25K in Japan but has seems to have withdrawn from the MD? Hope she is not injured.

Re: Ellen Barry

I know her!!! ...what happened to my Ellen Barry thread, did I delete it or something?

She's never been the same since that near career-ending wrist injury

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: Ellen Barry

Austria 10K - SF

Ellen Barry(NZL)(6) def Myriam Casanova(SUI) 2-6 6-3 6-4

Great win for Ellen. Nice to see her back up her SF from last week, hope she can take the tittle.
She will move back into the top 450 now. Plays the 2nd seed in the final.

Re: Ellen Barry

Ellen is slowly improving again.

One more injury and I think she will call it a career.

Please stay injury free.

Good luck this week Ellen, a title would be nice.

I would like to see her close inside the top 300 byt years end. She's mroe than capable, just gotta stay way from the injurys.
