Sam Stosur's Blog!
I thought this may have been posted up by now, but apparently not. It's a good thing she's playing doubles or her blog might not have lasted that long (she plays Kim next round)

I'm really excited that I can be the Sony Ericsson blogger for this week. I hope I can bring you funny and interesting news from San Diego.
I arrived here on Saturday afternoon from Stanford. It was only a quick flight down so it was nice not to be on a plane for too long between tournaments. Since arriving, it has pretty much been just practice, practice and a bit more practice leading into my match, which I just played today. I played Nathalie Dechy and won, 75 64. I played really well so am very happy with the win and am looking forward to my next match, which will be against the top seed, Kim Clijsters.
I'm also looking forward to this event as I am playing doubles again this week with Lisa Raymond. It has been a few weeks since we've played so I might try and squeeze in a bit of doubles practice with her tomorrow as well.
I might be having a quiet afternoon tomorrow from the courts but may hit the golf driving range. I don't play very often... Well actually, I'm lucky to hit a ball once a year, so all you keen golfers at the La Costa Resort tomorrow better watch out because I don't have as much control over my golf swings and shots as I do on the tennis court.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Chat to you again soon,
