Ashley's Schedule

I noticed that Ashley listed Madrid as MDO since she has a chance to get into Rome with here new rank...

I hope she doesnt fall into the trap of only playing these big tourmaments just because she can get in...

One of the things I admired about Vera Z and Sveta last year was how they were willing to hone their games in the lower level tournaments, even after they were able to get into the bigger ones...

Ashley needs to continue playing smaller tournaments to work on her game and chance to win that first title...

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

I agree! I think she should play some lower tier tournaments until she gets more experienced.

I was surprised to see that Ash was in the draw at Berlin, I wonder what happened. I hope she is ok...

I would like to see her play Rome and Madrid...she needs to play as much on clay as possible as its her best surface and her best chance to earn points...

I read on one of her fan sites that Ashley will play Rome, Strasbourg, Eastbourne and Wimbledon. Go Ashley!

Its strange but she is on the commit list for Madrid but not Strasbourg...

I wish she would play Birmingham instead of Eastbourne

She's on the Strasbourg website now as the highest ranked player in qualifying, probably because they used old rankings before Charleston or she entered late because she's higher ranked than some of the players in the main draw.

Good luck Ashley in Europe!

Although I do agree that she should try Birmingham instead of Eastbourne, she'll probably be in qualies at Eastbourne anyway so she'll get some match practice regardless

Yes, she is definitely playing the French, it was probably a typo by selesfan.

Ashley is definitely playing Strasbourg...she should get into the MD since Tammy who is on the list is not playing...

It was quite a scare, I didn't understand why she wouldn't be playing.

Thanx.

Ashley's entered in Vienna now as well and is entered in both Eastbourne and s'Hertogenbosch.

I think this is a great idea for her to get some more clay wins because she really didn't get to utilize her favorite surface due to the age restrictions.

I think I'd rather her play in s'Hertogenbosch at this point, even though it's her second choice because the draw looks pretty weak after the top four and she might be able to pick up a couple maindraw wins unlike Eastbourne where the draw is excellent and there are a lot of experienced grass courters.
