Ashleigh Barty - Queenslander

Post by poshaussie » 04 Nov 2019, 09:34

Queenslander Ash Barty is on top of the tennis world after her WTA Tour Finals win.

It has been a stunning 2019 season for Ash Barty.

Three singles titles — including a maiden grand slam at Roland Garros — has meant Ash Barty will end the year flying high as world number one.

Now, to cap it all off, she's won the season-ending WTA Finals in Shenzhen to claim the biggest monetary prize in the history of the sport at $6.4 million.
She's also earned more money than the leading men so far this season.

You don't seriously expect anybody on here to be interested do you?
If Wycliffe was still posting he might have made some smart comment.
But the other 6891 members would lose interest as soon as they realise a Queenslander has once again excelled in the field of sport.

It strikes me as ridiculous that despite how good I thought Asleigh Barty was in the French Open for her to get more money than Rafa Nadal is appalling. The BBC female presenters rightly get upset when their male counterparts earn more on an hourly basis, but I suggest that Barty's earnings were about three times Rafas earnings per hour, utterly scandalous
