Well there is a turn up for the books..... Well done on becoming world number 1 ladies tennis player

Looking from the outside you play the game in the spirit that is intended and you are a credit to all....

 

Now if only some of the male Aussie tennis players could take note of how to conduct yourself on and off the tennis court

One thing that I am continually finding amusing about the Australian media is how the second sentence of every article or report on Ash is related to anyone else other than herself.

Why can't Ash simply be celebrated for her own successes without needing to be compared to the other tennis players, or cricketers or snooker players or anyone.

Well done Ash, may you continue to have all of the future positive stories written about your achievements and deserved admiration.

Wasn't she snubbed by Tennis Australia or the AIS a few years ago? Had to fund her own coaches and trainers with no help from TA?

As a Tennis player, she did good as a cricketer too!

What's her golf swing like? Probably plays of single figures.

Agreed VijayJay, especially any comparison to those odious little toads Tomic and Kygrios which seems to follow any sentence mentioning her humility.

 

Congrats Ash, well played.

I'm a fan too

“I will put my b***s in your mouth. And I will give you some money to make you feel good.”

 

Just Counting my money. “I don’t care about that match point—would you care if you were 23 and worth over $10 million?”

 

Nothing is my fault!

 

I'm Granking!

Overrated?

Bugger....

But lost with style, kudos to her for run of late and the manner in which she handled the loss...

Hopefully just a bump on the road and normal service resumes when next she plays
