Re: Aussies at the Olympics
Sam was never going to get far in singles but at least she has a winable R1 match having beaten Navarro at Wimbledon and being the underdog against Kim ahould help her and hopefully she can just go out swinging.
Tough doubles draws but I'd give both teams a chance to move into R2 with Casey and Sam outside chances at a bronze medal. Anyone know who our team will be for the mixed? I'd go with Sam and Lleyton.
Samantha Stosur, Ash Barty, Lucie Safarova
Kim Birrell, Sabine Lisicki, Lizette Cabrera, Priscilla Hon
Kristina Mladenovic, Heather Watson, Ana Konjuh, Zoe Hives
