Nice routine win again from Sam. Only saw the last few games but it looked like Falconi was actually playing quite okay, better than I expected her to. Sam was a bit kind to her though on the return of serve, a lot were going long. She'll need to sort that out for the later rounds, but otherwise I think she's looking good. Go Sammy!
Well Falconi did better than what I realistically expected-i.e. a double bagel loss. This is the second slam out of seven she went beyond the 1st round so I guess her presence in the draw is justified. Still she is only cannon fodder for the good and above average players on the tour.
