Great result - and seems like a ripper person. I wonder if tomic/kyrgios look at her with admiration.

Evidently she plays golf (rarely) off 10. Remarkable.

From 2:15......she's not sure either. Influenced by her father who was a supporter. Just a sports-loving family I guess.

I didn't even know her father's indigenous.

I read somewhere that her father follows West Tigers in the NRL, Richmond was just a natural progression.

Neither of those 2 clowns would understand that you have to do the hard work to be a SUCCESSFUL sports person.

Ash has done & will continue to put the work required.

Fantastic effort Ash, congratulations i just love the way you roll. :clap :clap :clap

Ash just moved to number 2 in world ranking. :clapping

Highest ranking for an Oz woman since Evonne for about 40+ years.

Didn't know she was a Queenslander. The club's done well to pick her up as a supporter.
Not our doing. She was a supporter from a young age and she's quite die-hard.

There was some footage of her warming up before a match by kicking a footy. She's better at dinky 10m chips than Shank.

Ash won in straight sets 6-3, 7-5 and is now the number 1 ranked player in the world.

Great seeing Ash at the top with the no 1 next to her name. Tiger supporters get rewarded, whereas the Choker supporter who disrespected our cup is dropping like a stone. Karma is a *****.

Interesting game between Nadal & Kyrgios. K kept his head mostly and wasn't far away. His fitness is not up to those elite players but he sure does have some skills. Nadal very happy with the win and spoke well after. Listening to radio this morning they made a good point that perhaps K is scared of really giving 100% in case he does and he doesn't win that GS. Easier to be competitive and say I could have won if I trained as hard as the other guys.
