Re: Sammy at Amelia Island

its ok, but i have a weird feeling about this, i hope she does well, shes had a quali or bye in last few events which is a change frm top seeds. and she could face golovin again which is better then venus =)

SAMMY OUR NO 1

Re: Sammy at Amelia Island

the players that would likely threaten sam towards a path to a QF from my view would be azarenka & golovin (both good hitters of the ball). so i'm hoping that sam's serve is on & that her groundies & net play will help her through.

Re: Sammy at Amelia Island

Hoping sam to make third round, and if she beats Golovin (excelent).... but i really think that sam should be able to get at least a set of a top 20 player

Re: Sammy at Amelia Island

probably to focus on her singles more... she has already proved herself in doubles and she would really be looking to further her singles ranking and results so maybe this is for her to really focus on singles... im sure she will stay play doubles will lisa just not as often... but lisa will want to continue playing doubles becasue her singles ranking is very poor... that is my take on the matter i could be wrong though

Re: Sammy at Amelia Island

from her homepage

SAM AND LISA WIN MIAMI
posted on April 2nd, 2007 at 4:54 AM

Sam and Lisa have captured their third WTA title this year after defeating the number two seeds Black and Huber in the final 6-4 3-6 (10-2) of the Sony Ericsson Open. Their second in a row.

Sam now moves on to Amelia Island where she is competing in singles only this week.

Amelia Island will mark the first tournament Sam is playing only in the singles in an effort to improve her ranking beyond it's present 27 and into the top twenty. She is not abandoning doubles and Lisa and Sam still remain a solid partnership, only on a slightly reduced schedule together.

Amélie || Serena || Roger

Re: Sammy at Amelia Island

Lisa will have more points than Sam now so Sam will be ranked #2.

Stosur | Dellacqua | Gajdosova | Tomljanovic | Gavrilova | Rodionova | Barty

Re: Sammy at Amelia Island

Great result Sammy! The Golovin game will be a tougher one I think but Sam can do it.

Re: Sammy at Amelia Island

Golovin knocked Sam out 6-2, 6-1. The second set only lasted 12 minutes. Let's hope she can get a better result in Charleston.
