Wishing Ashley good luck in Paris

Ashley d. Obata 6-4, 6-2

her first win in the maindraw of a slam

her level of play was not great, but I hope it was just jitters because she will have to play much better to get by Dani...

Dani will be ready for her this time...

I think Ashley has the advantage over Dani in a long match because she has a much stronger body than Dani does. In the last year Ashley has gotten fitter and stronger as well. But while Dani has gotten more fit, she appears to be weaker and has been getting crushed alot lately. Including a pounding by Ashley at the Family Circle Cup.

I expect Dani to play better on red clay. Their other match was on green clay. But I still think Ashley will beat her in 3 tough sets.

I was right about Ashley winning in 3 sets! She outlasted Hantuchova 9-7 in the third set, after blowing a 5-1 lead! And congrats to Dani for showing alot of heart and fight for someone so slight! She can really hit the ball!

I just hope Ashley is okay for her third round match. She looked tired in the third set while Dani was looking surprisingly fresh.

And I wasn't too worried about Ashley losing that tough semifianl match in Strasbourg. Becasue not having to play the final in Strasbourg saved her some strength and energy for this match.

Good luck Ashley!

My girl showed alot of heart today...I was in tears at one point...I thought she was a goner...all I could think about was how sad she was going to be having choked two weeks in a row...

She showed that she learned from her mistakes and that she knows never to give up

Awesome win girl

I will definitely tell Ash about this site next time I see her so she knows how many fans she has!

Lets hope she has something left in the tank against Magui
