Re: Lauren Davis

She's smart to have turned pro It's a big paycheck. Beatrice made R3 at USO and I think didn't get it because she wasn't pro. (Can anyone confirm or refute this?)

Confirmed No R3 check for Trice as she still maintains her amateur status.

Well, the possibility of a big scholarship to college. Once you go pro, that option is gone.

Not sure how I feel about Lauren turning pro. I know she has the dedication and the drive. We'll see I guess. She has been playing out of her mind, so I hope she is able to build up a good ranking!

Re: Lauren Davis

Comparing Madison Keys's kick serve to Sam's...

She seems very confident and dangerous though... Time will tell how good she'll be, and a GS R1 match against a top 10 player is a good gauge.

Yeah, I think she's just trying to stay positive, which is the right thing to do. I saw Madison play a lot in Cleveland, and her serve was just really fast and hard.... it didn't have the kick that Sam's has.

Re: Lauren Davis

She looks sooo nervous out there

Hopefully she can hold here. I think that would give her a bit more confidence for the begining of the 2nd set

Stosur is serving so well. No chance for Lauren, I'm afraid.
