Samantha Stosur - Potential journeywoman!

With her type of game and the fact she plays singles and doubles I hope she holds up as she playing 7 tourneys in a row
Luxembourg (II) - 2r
Stuttgart (II) - 1r
Moscow (I) - 2r
Zurich (I) - 2r
Linz (II) - ???
Hasselt (III) - ???
YEC (SEC) - ???

Cornet // Diyas // Jankovic // Dellacqua // Pironkova // Halep // Hingis
Dulgheru // Gajdosova// Kanepi // Cetkovska // Svitolina // Niculescu // Errani

I didn't realize she's playing Linz. Yeah, that will be tough but she's lost in the 1st or 2nd round so it doesn't really matter.

GO THE AUSSIES!

She's not holding up.
Sam & Lisa are 4-3 this month with a tourni win.
I just feel if Sam plays this, she's not gonna have enough to be very competitive for doubles at the YEC.

Something needs to change.

Journeywoman = Liga Dekmeijere = 26 singles tournaments, 27 doubles tournaments. She's practically on ever entry list...I hope she really loves playing.

Journeywoman = someone who's been playing for years and years and hasn't really been able to break through to the very top... playing 7 tourneys in a row doesn't really qualify you.

You think you know it all Sarah...
I'd consider someone like Tzipora Obziler a journeywoman (Oh, she's so close to the top 100 now!)


Does anyone know if Sam wears sunglasses indoors? Because I swear when I saw her years ago she was...maybe it's her problem...

Yes... Tzipi would be one I consider to be a journey woman! But Sam's still been moving up the rankings so... we'll see. She could yet become a journeywoman!

I think she was wearing sunnie at Hopman Cup... ...hmm...

now if sam played 7 tourneys in a row & didn't lose in the 1st or 2nd round all the time & reached quarters, semis & finals then she would probably struggle.

but i don't think playin her 5th tourney in a row in linz should hurt her 2 much.

I think she used to be sponsored by a sunglass brand, so she had to always wear them, even indoors. But i'm not sure about now.

Sam will be bigger than Rafter and Molik...as an avid fan I hate to say that. Sammy will be top 8 by the end of next year as everyone defends their points....If Alicia doesn't have a great Aussie summer...she will retire! (Pls don't hun :-()

****** Dasha Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******Pending membership for the Ash Barty Return Band Wagon*****
