It's a good draw for Ashley, she should win her first match, and her second one is winnable if she actually is recovered from her injury.
first thing i want to say: i'm sooooo glad she's back on the courts again :D:D:D she hasn't played a match since Wimbledon and now finally she can show the world her tennis qualities again

second: i don't think the draw is that good..
Ash should be able to defeat Stevenson in her normal form, but she'll prob face Ai Sugyama in 2nd, who will be much and much harder to defeat..
and if she manages to get past her, she'll face Jen Capriati!! so not really the ideal draw, i say :)

but still i hope Ash will have a great tournament and i hope she will kick some arse out there :D go get that Stevenson! :devil:
good luck ashley, hope she's fully recovered :)
Ashley lost 6-1, 7-6 to Perebiynis :sad:

Why couldn't she have played Alex instead :rolleyes: ;)
yeah indeed, grrr, Stevenson was injured, why couldn't they just let Ashley go through to the 2nd round :sad:
