Bad loss by Sam Stosur

Why is it that Sam Stosur only seems like a decent player when playing in Australia?

Cmon Sam! Grass should suit your game to a tee!!

I know. I was shocked. She has a lot of skills, especially on grass, but she can't seem to translate them to very many wins.

Whenever I've seen her on TV she's been either spectacularly good or equally spectacularly bad. Guess this was a bad day.

From what I've seen, Sam is bad at leading. She'll fight hard if she's behind in a match, but she doesn't know how to take the lead and keep it.

She's really modest and nice. Rest a bit and get ready for Wimbledon Sam

Maybe she'll win a match there for the first time ever.

who did she lose to? after her AO, her year seems to be pretty lackluster, great potential there though

yeah i think even though shes really fit the break from now to wimbel will do her good and keep her fresh the usage of playng in doubs will give her match play and should be able to give her that chance for wimbel, oh well

Potentially, She might reach 3rd at Wimbledon if she plays at her best.

Rest In Peace, Elena Baltacha

People say bad loss but did anyone see the stats, Sammy's opponant served like 13 aces in the match and was on fire, its all cool though Sammy should do great at Wimbledon as long as she stays away from a big seed in 1st round

All Aussie chicks rock

Dissapointing loss to say the least. Sam needs more confidence.

Poor Sam her has so much Potential to go far but she will have to put in the work. Like at the moment i'm liking Alicia Molik's chance's at getting a good result hopfuly it might see her back in the top 100

That is very disappointing... but Sam does have the type of game that takes a while to mature... just look at Alicia.

Mind you, there is absolutely no reason why she can't make say, the quarters at Wimbledon if her game can click (barring a very bad draw)
