Re: Rally for Relief - Australian Floods

An exceptional gesture from these top players, esp Sam Stosur and Pat Rafter.

Losing a match in tennis seems so trivial compared to people who have lost everything - houses, possessions, loved ones.

So long...

Re: Rally for Relief - Australian Floods

Would anyone notice Sam's presence or absence. In the hit for Haiti, she could have easily been replaced with a wall. Hopefully, in front of the home crowd, she can be more expressive.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

That's a bit mean.
It's her home country, her home state.

It's a great gesture and hopefully they raise a lot of money throughout the entire tournament.

And I really, really like Roger but hopefully it will not come across as if he's the mastermind behing that charity exhibition.

Re: Rally for Relief - Australian Floods

She is a super introvert by nature and there's no way she wouldn't be there. Of course, she needs to try harder this time, but can't change it for a charity match after all. Especially when you're playing with those names.
