Re: Charleston R2: Stosur (2) d. Mayr-Achleitner 6-1 6-2
Looks like a good result, Mayr had thrashed someone in the 1st round who I don't remember who she was
The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
Her form is actually "decent". Poor by top 10 standard but decent enough to not lose in opening round in any tournament this year.
Except Safina, she has consistently beaten players outside top 40. It's the higher ranked players she's been struggling with.
Exactly. A match up like this was never in doubt. Not even the most nervous of Stosur fans would think that she would lose this match. Players like Mayr are just flies waiting to be swatted. It's the bigger hitters, girls that make the play, that Sam has struggled against all year.
Vesnina seems to be playing well this week, Sam better watch out.
