Nicole Pratt stated that Sam Stosur is "one of the big guns"...True or False?

When I heard Pratt say this on commentary, I thought it was a controversial statement.

What are your thoughts on this?

I think it is quite interesting when a lesser players occasionally beats the top plays, they are considered to be big time players.

She definitely has big guns but as far as being a 'big gun' *shakes head* she's a sniper or a looming player if anything.

Concerned but not consumed.

I thought she said Stosur HAD 'big guns'. In some places in the USA, that's an expression meaning muscular arms. I'm not kidding. See link.

Yes she has big guns. Is she a big gun in tennis? Not there yet...

The "big guns" consists of the favorites going into every slam. Right now: the Williams, Dementieva, and whether we like to admit or not, Safina. They're always going deep into the slams right now.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru

Re: Nicole Pratt stated that Sam Stosur is "one of the big guns"...True or False?

yeah...a big shiny gun that jammed and failed to be effective in any way...............................her mileage from that little win over Serena is done. She burned herself out already and hasn't won shit. After shooting her mouth off about Serena maybe she should go and really do some bicep curls. I beat Serena this, I beat Serena that. Serena doesn't give people full credit! nanny nanny poo poo. You don't deserve any credit! It was a fluke! You suck! I thought winning a tournament was an objective not just beating one player. I'm glad she bounced out early in straights. Bye bye big mouth. You were never a contender. All braun and no brains.

When did Sam say all this?

After the week she beat Serena she made it through to the LA final for the biggest of her singles career, then the Canadian quarters, that's more than Serena's won this summer.
