True sports­man­ship

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - YOUR SAY -

THERE is so much to love about Ash Barty, her re­newed love of ten­nis, her re­spect for her op­po­nents, no grunt­ing dur­ing play, her sense of sports­man­ship, her will to win that saw her into the quar­ter-fi­nals of the Aus­tralian Open af­ter de­feat­ing Maria Shara­pova.

What a great role model for all our ten­nis play­ers and to top it off she had to lis­ten to the un­be­liev­able semi-fi­nal win of her old Heat team get­ting up off the last ball of their 20/20 game against the Syd­ney Thun­der.

Win, lose or draw Ash Barty is the tonic Aus­tralian ten­nis fans need to lift our spir­its. — Bill Glas­son Bud­erim
