Kvitova because shes getting closer to beating her, aswell as penneta even though she lost in the exhibition today i think if shes at her best she can finally beat her

Re: Who will Samantha Stosur beat in 2012?

I've already predicted that she'd beat all of these women at least once in 2012 (plus Clijsters). Don't see any reason to change that prediction.

Pennetta and Kvitova for me.

Pironkova.Kostova.Petrova.Kerber.Schnyder. Stosur.Jankovic.Kuznetsova.
Pavlyuchenkova.Niculescu.Radwanska.Date-Krumm.Kvitova.Vinci.Muguruza.

Vesnina.Falconi.Paszek.Shvedova.Bacsinszky.Van Uytvanck.Voegele

Re: Who will Samantha Stosur beat in 2012?

Stosur can beat Kvitova on US hardcourts if she serves and hits her FH well enough, with that I mean deep into the BH of Barktra. You can force easier shots from her the most by playing with good depth on her BH, because Kvitty sometimes hits it while falling back too much (partly due to her technique/rather big swing). I actually think this was the reason Azarenka won that second set off Kvitty in Wimbledon, she was playing safe but with great depth into the Kvitova BH and forcing quite a bit of errors this way. But of course most people here called her a pusher because she only hit like 1 or 2 winners during that set.

Azarenka and Pennetta seem like they come closest to being nightmare match-ups for Shanksur. I'm not sure if Vinas will make an impact when she starts playing again.

Re: Who will Samantha Stosur beat in 2012?

I think she will beat Masha a couple of times next year and I also see her beating Kvitova on a bad day.

Re: Who will Samantha Stosur beat in 2012?

panetta is the most logical choice, she doesn't have the power shot of the other players even if unless the other she actually uses her brain on court moving sam and not only hitting on her backhand

i like JJ

Their matches are tight, Stosur is barely winning games against Maria and Vika in form.

Re: Who will Samantha Stosur beat in 2012?

I feel like she will beat everyone else but Azarenka

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.

Re: Who will Samantha Stosur beat in 2012?

I doubt she'll be beating anyone major next year. Looking to a nice, long dragged out post-slam slump for ol girl.

Why don't you remind us with a thread about it like you do every Williams head-to-head?

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Re: Who will Samantha Stosur beat in 2012?

She'd almost certainly beat Venus if she played her, but I doubt Venus will be going far enough in any draws to play her.

Can't see her beating Kvitova or Maria as they're pretty much the worst possible match-ups for her, and I guess Azarenka too. I still see NO reason whatsoever why Pennetta is a bad match-up for her ...so I vote her.
