Do you think Sam Stosur will reach another slam final?

I wouldn't mind it if she proved me wrong, but I don't think so myself. I think it will be a very slim chance that she'll do the Henin/Serena/JJ triple (or some such other top player combo) at another slam AND have such a winnable opponent in the final. Plus I could only see her making slam finals on clay.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

I wouldn't put money on it but I think it there is a pretty good chance she will play at least one more RG final in her career, maybe more.

Not as long as she keeps mourning her RG loss.

When she gets over that, and focussed on her game, she certainly can.

Re: Do you think Sam Stosur will reach another slam final?

At RG except the final she proved herself worthy on the clay, particularly during that semi, so I think at Paris she could easily repeat the feat.

ugh.

Re: Do you think Sam Stosur will reach another slam final?

RG, yes. Otherwise no. Her game has too many weaknesses to make deep runs in other slams, like non existent backhand and poor movement. Her serve isn't suited to outside of clay as well. Basically that leaves her with a huge forehand, which, although, is an important shot, it is not enough to make slam final.

Re: Do you think Sam Stosur will reach another slam final?

Her FO run was very strong, and she made the semis the year before.
It wouldnt be wild for her to make another RG final.
I'd be surprised if she gets to 1 of the other 3 major finals

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Maybe at RG but I don't see her making the finals of the AO/Wimbledon/USO

Re: Do you think Sam Stosur will reach another slam final?

If she could just get her head together I'd give her a chance at the AO, but the home crowd pressure would probably be too much for her. I would be surprised if she isn't a consisent contender at the french for the rest of her career though.
