Not quite sure what is going on with Australia and their female tennis players however it all seems a little bit 'fishy' to me. Ashleigh Barty was destined for success and had a magnificent game yet she has disappeared from the World Tennis radar.
Personally I believe she was so much more entertaining to watch than Stosur and she had no fear, something Stosur has all sorts of issues with.
Now here is the Women's Top 10 Australian Rankings for you, note the names;
At Number 1 we have Sammy, at 2 we have Dellacqua followed by Gajdosova, then it gets interesting.
Ajla Tomljanovic is next at number 4, she was born in Croatia. Daria Gavrilova is at number 5, she is Russian. Anastasia Rodionova is a fellow Russian ranked number 6 followed by another 'true blue' Aussie Olivia Rogowska at number 7, born in fact in Australia. Just the name sends your thoughts elsewhere doesn't it ?
Now at number 8 in the Australian Female Tennis rankings we have Arina Rodionova, yet another Russian who is now playing under the banner of Australian Tennis Professional. Number 9 is Australia's greatest waste of a talent, Ashleigh Barty and Jessica Moore rounds off the Top 10 in this Country.
So I ask the obvious question. Are we producing female tennis players or importing them ?
You do the sums......
