Does anyone know how much Ashley Harkleroad is expected to play in 2002? Will she be in Aus Open qualifying?<br />Hopefully we'll be seeing a lot more of her. Come to think of it, maybe that's an unfortunate turn of phrase, as she was wearing far too much at the US Open, judging by the pictures I saw.<br />Some more piccies would be great, if anyone has any..

What does her wearing a lot of clothes have to do with anything? Did it prevent her from playing well?

Her ranking isn't high enough to get into aus open quallies. She will probably play more challengers asd get some wild cards into us wta events

Moreover, she is still under age restrictions so we probably just see the same type of results from her as this year.

Her chance to shine if she does will come in 2003.

Tim, unfortunately Ashley is still under the well intented, but misguided age restriction rule, that keeps players from fulfilling their potential. But I hope Ashley can play enough challengers and small WTA tournaments to break into the top 100 in 2002.

good luck to Ashley!

she'll need all the luck she can get! with all the attention and pressure, I guess, it's not going to be easy.... Anna first come to mind, Ashley should learn from.

as for the clothes incident.... she herself said she likes that kind of thing, and it won her the crowd. she has the body, if she gots it she should flaunt it <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> . and who wants to wear baggy and crappy clothes to inhibit their play. she made an ugly outfit way hott! and played well in it, let her enjoy herself...shes 16 im 16 and we both enjoy it <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

I don't expect many good results for her.<br />There are other juniors on a higher level than her.<br />Kaia Kanepi will win her first challenger, so will Svetlana Kusnetsova.

Harkleroad will have to wait till 2003

This might work to Kournikova's advantage. When everyone starts latching on to Harkelroad, it will be a welcomed break for Anna and she'll win her first title.

OK, there was a hint of sarcasm in my original posting <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />I had in the back of my mind the possibility of age restrictions on how much she plays.<br />If she enjoys showing off her fine body that's great, it's good that she's proud to show it off to us all. Hence one hopes "to see more of her"!! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
