Well done Ash. This is the sort of stuff Australian tennis needs to give it a kick in the butt, after all the damage the 2 grubs have done.

Still showing class, also the only Australian woman to be number 1 at the end of the year.

What a legend. A great result.

She is a credit to herself, us, her ancestry, tennis, sport and Australia, may she never change and may others look at her and ask "why can't I be like that"?

What a woman, her reply to a reporter’s question on Australia Day.


The Aussie admitted she wasn't aware of the large protest held in Melbourne CBD as she again acknowledged her strong values and the desire to stay humble.

"I mean, I wasn't aware of the protest. I wasn't keeping an eye on it," she added.

"I'm a proud Indigenous woman. I'm a proud Australian.

"For me, it doesn't matter what day of the year it is. I'm going to stay true to my values all throughout the year, all throughout my life.

"Every single day I want to be kind, I want to be honest, I want to be humble, I want to give the best that I can. That's all that matters for me."

Yes, as my title for this thread says, she's a GEM and I hope she stays this way as a fantastic example for children to follow and what someone can achieve if they believe in themselves and have respect for their peers.

Not sure if there's a separate topic but I'd like to say that the the Nadal/Krygios match last night was well worth watching, Krygios pushed Nadal all the way to the end - it really could have gone either way - and despite a couple of minor brain farts Krygios let his talent do the talking and I think he did himself proud. The crowd was certainly behind him. Hopefully he has turned a corner.

Now let's see Ash go all the way (y)

Yes, this competition has shown a good side from him, he can be a brilliant player, hopefully he has turned and can now show the world how good he can be.

Personally I think his publicity team have been working overtime on his public image, for a man who didn't give a toss about anyone else a few months ago, this has been a dramatic change. I'm going to reserve my opinion on him as his past behaviour has been disgusting on a majority of occasions and a leopard doesn't change its spots this damn quick without a 'driving force'.

Lets see in a couple of months, I'm not a forgive and forget person. But, who knows, maybe Ash Barty's ability to to represent herself and her country in a very respectful manner has rubbed off, one can only hope.
