Dat scoreline.

Have there been matches where both players have positive W/UE ratios yet?

Re: Dubai 2R: (4) Samantha Stosur def. Lucie Safarova 6-1 6-7(5) 6-1

Poor Lucie.

And Look at both Sam and Lucie in that third set, after a tiebreaker. SMH.

What can you do about Lucie? Just shrugs and hugs.

Go Sam. Vika's out the tournament, so you may have as good a chance as any. I'm not sure if they're are many tall, big hitters left in the draw (or if you'll see them), like Ivanovic, Lisicki and Georges.

I know Lisicki's 5'10" and Georges is 5'11". They may not tall enough to qualify for Sam's Club. And Georges may not hit flat enough (and/or have too big of a swing) to qualify either.

Not sure exactly, what's the Mendoza line/cut off height of futility is for Sam?

We definitely know it's 6' and over, though. Lol

So that was 100% Mauresmoesque pressure at the AO. I see no reason why she can't win RG if she keeps this up.Nnobody knows how to play on clay but clay is the fastest surface these days so she still needs to avoid Sharapova and Azarenka and be a massive underdog too now I see a few reasons

I put it at 5"11', but there are exceptions. I think Hantuchova might be that tall, but doesn't have a good record against Sam, whereas Flavia Pennetta is, I don't know, 5"7'ish, and, well...

Goerges has beaten Sam in both their matches. But I'm more worried about JJ just at the moment.
