Sam in Brisbane

Sam has Maria Kirilenko first up...from her website




Brisbane International begins

Saturday 3 January 2009

The draw is complete and Sam will kick off proceedings Sunday in the opening match of the tournament.

Sam will take on Russian Maria Kirilenko in the first round of singles. The gates open at 9am local time, and matches get underway at 10am.

Sam last played Maria in the final of the Korean Open late in 2008. She will be determined to avenge her tough three set loss there with a win tomorrow in front of her home state crowd.

In other exciting news for Sam, she has started 2009 with two new sponsors. From the start of the Brisbane event she will be using Babolat racquets, specifically the Pure Storm model and wearing Lacoste clothing.

Re: BRISBANE ROUND ONE vs KIRILENKO

Ive seen Sam so many times and she is looking great. She was practicing yesterday with Azarenka, Mauresmo and Dokic. She is hitting it really cleanly and looks very confident. She watched the cricket all day today lol. Hopefully she can come away with the win tomorrow. Ill be there in my Smash em Sam shirt. LETS GO SAM

Re: BRISBANE ROUND ONE vs KIRILENKO

Sam is also looking so fit and toned. She has been doing some very tough practice sessions with Dave Taylor and looks like she is roaring to go. She sturggled a little in the exhibiton match but she has looked in really good form in her practice. She was practicing her kick serve It gets so much bounce She has also signed heaps of autographs. She is so popular. And can I just add that her outfit is the best in years. If she plays well she is capable of beating all the players in the draw. Tough battle in the opening round but hopefully the home crowd advantage can help her to play well and pull of the upset. Photos to come.

Re: BRISBANE ROUND ONE vs KIRILENKO

i have a good feeling about this - Kirilenko will be tough but i really cant see her beating sam here - apart from that Sam has a very nice draw too

Lacoste + Babolat + David Taylor + no ranking points to defend until clay = strong 2009

Re: BRISBANE ROUND ONE vs KIRILENKO

I am pumped for her in this match, shame its tomorrow so I can't see her on T.V. I love that she is wearing Lacoste as well, they always have the best outfits.

If she is pumped and plays well like it looks like she will. This should be a close fought match with hopefully Sammy coming out on top!

Re: BRISBANE ROUND ONE vs KIRILENKO

Im kinda happy Kirilenko withdrew. Sugiyama should be a little easier for Sam. Hopefully she can put in a good performance.

She was watching alot of the matches on Pat Rafter Arena today =]

Re: BRISBANE ROUND ONE vs KIRILENKO

We get to see her on T.V now which is good news, the bad news is they kicked Holland off to court 1.

Re: BRISBANE ROUND ONE vs KIRILENKO

That sucks Maria pulled out

But I'm happy I can record and watch Sam's match later

Why didn't Sam get a WO into the second round?

Re: BRISBANE ROUND ONE vs KIRILENKO

I guess because qualifying was still going so they could get a lucky loser into the draw. (who will take Sugiyama's previous spot in the draw)
