It's so weird watching someone so experienced against someone so young and new.

That's why I love the grand slams.

That was hard to watch. Never seen Davis before, but she was totally overwhelmed in every which way by Stosur. Can't say by watching this one match, where she probably was overwhelmed, but being so small, I don't know how much future she has in pro tennis.

Lauren is just too small to make an impact with the girls at the top of the WTA tour, I can see why she has achieved a lot in juniors though as she's pretty solid and consistent.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Davis might be smaller than Vives. She did well to see a main draw

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

Sammy's best and easiest win in her grandslam career apparently. Congrats and keep up the good form.

Lauren Tough draw for her, but hopefully a good experience. Her groundstrokes are pretty solid, particularly her backhand. She could have a decent career.

i had never seen lauren before and frankly she is too small and doesn't have the build to compete on the tour.

sam was completely unthreatened.

Once you go pro(if she is actually accepting the prize money) you cannot play college tennis.

Stosur was her usual self. First flat hitter will pick her off.

I hope Lauren can grow and mature from this loss. I didn't expect her to win, but getting experience from this will be helpful as she gets older. Hopefully she isn't done growing physically, because she is so tiny and it really affects her play against the powerful players like Sam.

Sammy was hammering the ball out there today Congrats on the win

Lauren Even though she got smoked, i hope she still enjoyed her time in Austalia . She's still pretty young, i hope she can grow a couple more inches. It's going to be so hard for her to battle against todays big babes of tennis at her 5ft 2" stature

There, corrected.

This is what Lauren said before the match...

"I haven't lost a match in four months,"

"I know I can compete with these girls in Australia and beat a lot of them, and I think I have a good shot against Stosur.

"She has a really strong forehand and good kick serve, but my friend Madison Keys has a really good kick-serve to the backhand, and I'm used to that. My backhand is strong, and I'm going to take it early."

Reality check, Miss Davis.

So long...
