Ashley Harkleroad now 21 years old (05/02) had her coming out party in the spring of 2003. Just before her eighteenth birthday she received a wildcard into the Family Circle Cup, contested in Charleston, SC. Ashley went all the way to the semi-finals before losing to eventual champion Henin-Hardenne. Ashley then went to a semi-final in Strasbourg, France and then went to the third round of her French Open winning a dramatic match with Daniela Hantuchova, 9-7 in the third.
Ashley first received attention at the 2001 Ericsson Open, her first tournament as a professional. Later in the year while competing in the junior portion of the French Open she began to receive more attention. In June she was seeded as the #1 Junior on the fabled grass of Wimbledon. It was at Wimbledon that she really started to garner the attention on a broader level including a second web page dedicated to her tennis prowess going up on the web. (The webmaster for the page you are now viewing first saw Ashley in Dothan, Alabama and was looking for a topic for a web page that would draw some attention. As a tennis fan and recognizing the young talent's skill, Ashley Harkleroad was chosen as the topic and the first ever fan web page debuted in May of 2001.)
The U.S. Open lowered the flood gates. She wore an outfit that drove the young boys wild and the critics nuts. She handled it all in stride with plenty of poise and hasn't seemed to let the critics get to her. Some of the critics call her "Kourna-copy" or "American Anna" but Ashley is proving to be her own person.
