A few clips of Sam's doubles match with Julia today for Aussie Open:
So nice to see Sam smile after yesterday's nightmare. Reminds me of her matches at wimby 11 with Sabine although Julia isnt necessary as smiley as Sabine.
Thanks for posting these.
I'd already seen the second one on youtube and wondered whether it was yours
As you said it's so nice to see Sam happy and relaxed after the singles debacle. Once again she proves how good she is at bouncing back after disappointment. I think the experience of playing doubles with Julia will help erase the bad memories, so by the time she plays singles again she should be able to start with more or less a clean slate.
And yes, Sabine is definitely a more bubbly personality, but Julia also seems nice, at least where Sam is concerned. There have been some threads on GM suggesting that she's sometimes not so nice when she plays singles, but as long as she's nice to Sam she has my blessing
