Samantha Stosur's Ultimate Aim...to piss off OZTENNIS

I can't believe that she could choke away such a lead. Serena wasn't even trying for half of the last set. She was up 3-6 7-6 5-4 40-0 and couldn't get a frigging first serve in. Then she had a fourth match point up Ad-40 and missed a sitting volley. Is she really that good a doubles player. It was a fu*&ing woeful miss. Then she plays another couple of shit games and loses a match she should have won. Not the first time she lost a match like this and definitely won't be the last. No emotion, no fire. Flat as a tack...PATHETIC

Am rethinking my favourite players now, I don't know that I can put up with such embarassments again

Re: Samantha Stosur's Ultimate Aim...to piss off OZTENNIS

yes, she was NOT mentally strong..at ALL

same thing happened with Jelena vs Mauresmo in parts of their match with her serve being her achille heal (no intended pun) on big moments...

but nonetheless iim sure Jelena will take away positives, and so will sam...gheez Sam really showed us she belongs in the top 20, no doubt.

Sam is becoming a fine singles player !

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Stosur doesn't really care what her fan thinks.

Re: Samantha Stosur's Ultimate Aim...to piss off OZTENNIS

I'm sure she feels worse than you do

Sometimes when you're in a winning position your arms become jelly and there's nothing you can do to make that ball go in. She fucked up royally. She knows it, but let's move on and wish her the best for Melbourne. She needs all the support she can get.

Re: Samantha Stosur's Ultimate Aim...to piss off OZTENNIS

Please correct me if im wrong... but it seems so much harder to play against a player who is not putting in the effot in rallies and just going for hit or miss shots... is it?

and i think sam showed that she belongs with the top players (maybe not with the top 5 but top 20), especially in the second set!!! Some of the best tennis i saw sam play.

Re: Samantha Stosur's Ultimate Aim...to piss off OZTENNIS

I was pissed off before as well. But after looking back at how well she played I am kind of feeling better. Looking at the positives I guess. If you look at just set 1 and 2 she was playing really well and took a set from a Serena who was playing well and trying.

The third set I will try and forget about from now on. I guess she did good staying composed even though Serena was going for broke, then not trying and doing all her weird shit.

I just hope this loss doesn't affect her to badly. I want to see both players interviews.

Re: Samantha Stosur's Ultimate Aim...to piss off OZTENNIS

UUHHHH its just depressing. It was a golden opportunity for Sammy to get the biggest win of her career - in front of a home crowd.

Hope she (unlike me) can find the positives and be 100% physically (and more importantly) mentally for the Open

Sam deserves to die. She choked most of those important points

She was playing Serena Williams. She would not have been the only player to falter.

Cibulkova. Konta. Safarova. Osaka. Wozniacki. Radwanska. Kvitova. Puig. Cepede Royg.

Zak, now you feel what I felt when I heard that Sacha turned down an ASB Classic wildcard

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: Samantha Stosur's Ultimate Aim...to piss off OZTENNIS

Serena did nothing to win the break back Sam choked there's no doubt about it. But look at it this way no one would be feeling any worse than Sam herself. I've seen Sam do this on several occasions and until she gets mentally stronger then she isn't going to take the next step up the ranking. Which is a shame as she has the talent to do if not the mental strength.

Re: Samantha Stosur's Ultimate Aim...to piss off OZTENNIS

It was a massive choke no doubt, Sam would make that volley on match point 99 out of 100 times but the pressure got to her.

However i did not expect Sam to be in a winning position in the match, especially after only winning 2 games at the olympics. Sam played so well in the second set and showed the form she can produce. Hope she can take the positives from the match as it was a good display from Sam until she had the match points.
