^This, exactly. I know these players can handle being put on the spot like that, and Sam did a great job answering him, but damn. It's uncalled for, and it makes me wonder if the WTA or tournament people draw a line anywhere. His prodding had nothing to do with the USO, with Sam's match, or with tennis in general. I hope you're right about the complaint process.

Jo and Bertrand -- thanks for the videos!

Re: Sammy Videos

You can have a look to that video: the morning before the Robson match.
With unusual suspects.

Re: Sammy Videos

Thanks Jo!

Really proud of Sam for getting this award, but annoyed at the USO for giving it zero publicity. As far as I can see it was not published on their website, apart from the bit at the end of her interview video clip where the award was actually presented. It isn't even included in the interview transcript, which explains why most of the media haven't picked up on it.

Re: Sammy Videos

Thanks for posting, Jo.

Wow...such a great attitude. And I'm happy to see that several times she mentioned playing really well, so I know she believes in her ability.

It's really too bad that her Sportsmanship Award didn't get any attention. I saw one small mention of it on USTA's website today. She totally deserves the award, but it should have gotten much more recognition. Btw, the first thing I thought about is the way that un-sportsmanlike behavior creates a media orgy (Serena), whereas being recognized for sportsmanlike behavior barely gets a mention(Sam). I know this is the the proverbial way it is, and it won't change, etc, but I still think its sad.

Re: Sammy Videos

The one video I really wanted to edit from the US Open: captures at 60fps with slow motions from original views.
If you enjoy slow motions, you definitely should have a look at it — includes Azarenka, Robson scenes, already instant and classic memories, I guess.

Very nice, B! Thanks for the slow-motion, too.

Oh, Sam.

Like the way it ended, though!

You're right unfortunately, that is the way it is. You only need to go onto GM to see how much value people put on classless behaviour (unless one's fave is on th receiving end, then it's totally unacceptable of course)

Re: Sammy Videos

I don't remember if this one has been posted yet. A quick interview with USANA as part of a series they are doing with athletes. Actually, digging through old Sam videos helps me ignore the USO womens final....

Each time Serena wins a slam final Sam's performance from last year seems more and more exceptional, so I didn't mind the result

Re: Sammy Videos

Of the possible finals based on the SF line up, this was the one I preferred. I like Vika more than Maria (if "like" is the right word), and even though I like Sara better than Serena, I don't hate Serena by any means, and I think Sara reaching a second slam final would just rub more salt in Sam's wounds for losing that SF in Paris.

But the main reason I wanted this final is that I thought it was the one that had the biggest chance of being a competitive match. That turned out even truer than I expected. While I agree with Silver Persian that Sam's victory last year looks even more exceptional now, the fact that Vika came so close to winning makes Sam's QF performance look more exceptional as well.
