Thumbs up Sammy Stosur - Looking Good !

Sam reminds me of another player, Martina Navratalova. (Sam)She's buff, lean & emotionless. I was gonna say lean and mean, but Sam is all work, no play. Martina was buff, lean & mean (would show emotion and vocalize her viewpoint). The first time I saw Sam play I said: "Here's a player who's got all the elements to dominate on the court". Having "guns" like she has, watch out Serena, Venus, Azarenka, Wozniacki, et el. I expected blistering serves and returns. Seeing her tonight, I expected to see some improvement from a year ago. She's technically good, has a better than average serve, and she's focused. If she wins tonight, she moves into the top 10. I don't see #1, but possibly #3.

Re: Sammy Stosur - Looking Good !

Nice jinx...

Sam suffers from a thing called mental retardation. She doesn't understand how to close out a match. I don't think she will ever reach those heights, despite her capabilities...because she just doesn't have the mental state to deal with tough matches.

Plus she is incosistent. But who knows, she might do something amazing.

Re: Sammy Stosur - Looking Good !

ARRRGH dont curse Sam, shes not had the best start to this 2nd set but i think she can win the match and definitely challenge Jankovic in the SF, but also i think that this might be close to her peak, i dont see her top 3 or top 5 in the near future

Venus Williams
Sammy Stosur
Ana Ivanovic
Kimmy Clijsters
Martina Hingis
Jarmila Groth
Sharapova Dokic Wozniacki Delaqua Molik Kirilenko Dementieva Na Dani Kvitova

Re: Sammy Stosur - Looking Good !

Stosur is NOT technically good. Probably the most untrue thing not said by a politician.

Re: Sammy Stosur - Looking Good !

But you saying she will be top 3 is a close runner-up.

Re: Sammy Stosur - Looking Good !

Please refrain from posting threads containing both "Sam Stosur" and "Looking good" in the title, for the sake of world peace.

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

Re: Sammy Stosur - Looking Good !

She is not a lesbian, who outed her? Lisa Raymond or the ones who outed Kuznetsova?

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.
