    Just received a link of pictures from the Dothan AL challenger, and there is Ashley harkleroad.

    Did she come to her senses and is she coming back?

    She may be coming back. Took some time off to get married, take care of some personal business, and heal some chronic injuries. I think these two Challengers are baby steps to see how she feels, how she holds up, and how she and Bogomolov can make their schedules work.

    TommyGun, I attended the Dothan tournament and watched Ashley play two matches. She's hitting the ball well, but lacks consistency and focus. Spoke briefly to Mr. H and husband Alex. Ash is planning a full return to the tour (as her results permit), and is presently injury-free.

    She appears thinner and blonder than I remember -- a VERY attractive young woman!

    Here is a latest pic of her practicing this year at Alabama. She looks like she gained some weight.

    Hmmm. She looked fit in person. Didn't notice a tummy pooch or anything. Also, the short shorts she played in gave her really long legs, and were a bit more flattering than those black Nadals in the pic.

    Aside from all that, I'm not sure she's ever going toe-to-toe with the WTA Top Ten. Ashley's strokes are clean and very well-taught, but they bring only average power to the table. If she gets her confidence going, though, Top Thirty is certainly within reach. I wish Ashley lots of luck!

    Musterdude,

    THANKS! I was bummed when she announced her "retirement" after marriage to Alex Bum-golov.

    I think she'll never be number one, but she might slip a major in. She showed she could hold her own at the French and at Wimby two years ago, and hoped she might be part of the resurgence and beauty in the women's tour.

    If you see her again, tell her I said "Welcome Back!" And I'll be willing to help coach her for free...

    Tommy, you're either dreaming or thinking with the wrong head. She's a little known who became a hasbeen early. If her game had been good enough, marriage would not have been an acceptable alternative for her. She is best known for having recieved a bunch of corporate money without having done anything.

    Wow!!! Very sexy!! I wonder if one day women tennis players will start to wear thongs. You think Serena will be the first? :)

    The women players already wear thongs, underneath whatever else they are wearing. There was a photo of Serena a few years back (in the orange Puma shorts she wore at the Nasdaq) and you could clearly see the straps on her hips above her shorts.

    I was thinking more like just the thong instead of shorts under the tennis skirt ;)

    Some people have the nerve to complain about atp butts thread and yet, it is acceptable to not only talk about harkelroad's body but to show it too. Hypocrisy.

    Congrats to Ashley and Owasso, Oklahoma's Lindsay Lee-Waters for winning the Boyd Tinsley doubles title this past weekend in Charlottesville, Va.
