Player Alert

Keep an eye out for Australian Junior Ashleigh Barty.Barty just won the ITF Yonex LTAT in Thailand.I have always said that do not pay too much attention to Junior ITF rankings as many have over inflated points .Barty started the tournament ranked 381 and came through the qualifying to main draw.This event included New Zealander Emily Fanning seeded 8 who was beaten by Aussie Abbey Myers in the second round.Barty dominated the field winning 6-2 6-2 R1 6-3 6-4 R2 6-1 6-0 R3 6-1 6-0 QF 6-1 6-0 SF and the winning the final
6-3 6-0 over Lin ZHU (china) .Barty is a 1996 birthdate and was one of the youngest in the field.Barty is definitely a player to watch out for in the future.
