Sam Stosur gives Lindsay a fright.

Australian Samantha Stosur gave Lindsay Davenport a surprisingly hard first round fight, taking the match to a tight 7-6(3) 7-5 first round finish, which Lindsay scraped through.

Samantha seems an even bigger server than fellow Aussie Alicia Molik, serving an average First Serve of 109 mph and a top serve of 117 mph! In the first set Sam won 83% of points on 1st serve (but only 22% on 2nd serve.

Unlucky loss for Sam....

Samantha is teaming up with Alicia Molik for doubles, so good luck to the girls.

well i expected this from sam especially with the way lindsay has been playing. same was up 3-1 in the first set and in the second set she was up 5-4 and serving for the set so she had some chances. she does have a big serve but her average first serve dropped a bit in the 2nd set as she lost consistency. in the first set it was more like 112 mph or 113 mph.

i think it may be a bit early to say that she has a bigger serve than alicia. at the moment she does but when alicia was sam's age she also had a serve that big but has slowed it down a bit.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Lindsay won this match on reputation alone because in terms of rallies it was even. Lindsay just looked like she didn't really care too much out there, pretty lacklustre performance, but I would like to see her prove a few people wrong and have a good run here.

I'm a Lindsay fan and I don't think she played too bad at all during the rallies - Stosur just played amazing. I was impressed by her and what stuck in my mind was her match opening service ace down the center line at 117mph That kind of serve [albeit -9mph] is usually a Davenport trademark.

Someone who can serve at that speed consistantly is bound to trouble Lindsay because she is not used to being put on her back foot from the first hit. Congratulations to Samantha for playing a great match!

I think by the last 3 service games of Stosur's, Lindsay had really got into a return rythem. I don't think we have to worry too much for Lindsay - let's just say she's had a great "warm-up" match.

Well Done again to Stosur - I think whatever happens I will always remember this wild card from Australia. Never has an "under dog" impressed me so much!

Pity I missed this match.

I wish had digital access.

Great play Samantha. Wish it had been rewarded!
Lindsay gets on my nerves. She always seems to be in a bad mood on court.

Hope Samantha and Alicia do well in doubles.
