Re: Samantha Murray

Has drawn Giorgi R1 at Wimbledon.

Giorgi reached R4 last year but has had a poor year. This is sooo winnable but I'm still expecting Giorgi to win here.

Re: Samantha Murray

Lost 3 & 4. Brave effort, though not really as close as the scoreline suggested, with Sam only carving out one BP in the match (which wasn't taken).

Re: Samantha Murray

Into the final in the 25K at Granby (CAN) after beating Coin in 3. Likely to face Ozaki, who is currently a set and 3-0 up.

Re: Samantha Murray

In keeping with the tone of the weekend for Team GB, Sam lost to Ozaki after winning the first set 6-0 and having an MP then serving for it (not in the same game) in the second.

I'm too lazy to try to work out what, if anything, this does to her chances of making the USO Q.

Re: Samantha Murray

That looks like quite a choke. But still some useful points this week, and very timely for the USO qualifying scenario.

Looks like TBE has her provisionally at 211, with a few women in her ranking bracket playing in large Challengers this week, who will probably gain points that will be added for the 29th July cut-date.

So she'll probably end up a couple of places below that, but with the 128 Q-draw at USO, she should squeeze in.

Re: Samantha Murray

Through to the Semis of another Canadian 25k- this time in Winnipeg. Plays Hibino for a place in her 2nd straight final!

Re: Samantha Murray

And she's through to the final. Runner-up in the doubles, too. Seems like she's hit some decent form.

Re: Samantha Murray

I hope Samantha can recover from the disappointment of the narrow defeat in the final of the doubles to win the singles.

Re: Samantha Murray

Nope. JoKo is simply better.

But these two weeks will have really helped Sam's ranking.

Re: Samantha Murray

213 in the rankings today. That should get her into the USO qualies, along with Konta (147), Moore (189) and Baltacha (208).

Re: Samantha Murray

Sam v KDK about to start on the www.vanopen.com live stream. (Too late for me, I'm afraid.)

Re: Samantha Murray

Sam was getting schooled early on, but evidently she put her game together to make the eventual defeat a heartbreaker; score was Date def. Murray 6-3 5-7 7-6(4).

Re: Samantha Murray

So close

Pushing the world #65 to a final set TB is a great effort.
