Re: Cheering Thread: Clay time again

They really didn't have a chance.
It's very telling how upbeat Sara was after the RG final and then she was crying today. She wanted that medal so badly.

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay time again

I couldn't see much of the match yesterday, but it is sad that Sara has to leave the Olympics like that, I am not surprised she was so upset, they really thought they could get a medal . Although it was their worst surface, they were having a great season and anything could happen, so it was so unlucky to have to play the Williams sisters before fighting for the medals for real, as you say, their ranking penalised them, as with the other American team having to be in the other side of the draw, the sisters had to be in theirs.

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay time again

Montreal's doubles draw is out and Sara/Roby are seeds number 2, have a bye in first round and will play winners of Dekmeijere/Rosolska-Makarova/Savchuk in the second round

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay time again

Well, she should be able to win a match in singles at least.
It's so strange to see Sara being seeded 9 and having a bye here. But it's good, and it's a decent draw too.

Doubles not looking bad either, as you would expect from 2nd seeds.

Re: Cheering Thread: Clay time again

Sara has won by 6-3 and 6-2 a crazy match in which she has broken her rival's serve 8 times and she has been broken 4 tims! Now good luck in the doubles!
