Re: WWW USO R4: 2011 Slam Slayer Laura v Defending Champ Sam
This match will be a fascinating one. Pretty an sure it'll be an AA night match: defending champion vs. tournament darling.
The key will be how well Laura handles Sam's serve and top spin (doubt she'll have faced anything like it before), if she can use her height, time her shots right, get on the return and rush Sam (like Masha does) she really has the game to cause the Aussie some major trouble!
Not seen her play yet, but it sounds like Sam's playing well. Have to say though, the pressure will really ramped up on her, we'll see if she can handle it!
