Such a good match from Sam I badly want to see a QF with her and Azarenka

Taking out a tough opponent easily...

Yikes...losing to Stosur in the opener is never a good thing...but she's always a slow starter and rarely does well here (though when she does, she wins it...)...good luck in dubs ai.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Ai . She always seems to start out the season slowly.

Not surprising, Ai usually has a bit of a slow start to the season. Good win for Stosur though!

Ai's first round was better BEFORE her promotion to 9th seed!

Re: Brisbane R1: Stosur def Ai 6-2 6-3

stosur played pretty well then
bad luck for ai though, she would probably want her old draw back

Tell me about it


Good match from Sam, much more controlled than usual. Great start to the season.
Treated herself to a makeover aswell. New racquet, clothes, hair and no sunnies? I thought she looked hot.

Sam was a bit scratchy at first, but showed her best when down all those breakpoints. Lookin good.
