In this episode, we chatted with two rising American WTA stars, Ashlyn Krueger and Robin Montgomery. These two 18-year-olds had just won their R1 match at the ATX Open and we discuss how they adjusted their strategy in the 10-point tiebreaker.
They also recently won an ITF tournament in Orlando, so we ask them what’s been clicking lately. You’ll get some insights into how a team builds chemistry on and off the court as well as how players manage their schedule as they fight to get into the top 100.
We also discuss:
- What they think makes the other a good doubles partner
- What boundaries they’ve learned to cross and not cross
- How their game styles fit together, including why Ashlyn thinks Robin’s “leftiness” helps
- Their biggest WTA win to date
I expect you’ll be hearing their names more and more in the coming years on the singles and doubles court as they continue to improve.
