If Sam reaches the 4th round of the FO and plays Henin.....

then I feel that she will win. In the last few yeasr Sam has played extremely well and won against players who she has lost to previously. Its like she works out how to counter a player once she has lost to them. Not that its the best strategy but it seems to be working for her
Some notable examples....
Loses to Serena in Sydney 09 and then beats her in Stanford 09
Loses to Wozniacki in the PV and Eastbourne 09 and then beats her in Japan 09
Loses to Dementieva in AO 09 and then beats her in the FO 09
Loses to Ivanovic at Wimbledon 09 and then beats her in LA 09
Loses to Kuznetsova at FO 09 and then beats her in Toronto 09
Loses to Jankovic in Indian Wells 10 and then beats her in Miami 10
Loses to Bartoli in a US leadup in 09 and then beats her in Stuttgart 10
Loses to MJ Martinez-Sanchez in Bali 09 and then beats her in Fed Cup and two other times in 2010


Maybe a coincidence, and maybe because Sam has only in the last 18 months stepped up her game again then these stats look this way. But, Ive always thought that Sam has always played better against players she is familiar with and maybe gets a bit angry and is after revenge. So look out Henin.... and for that matter Sharapova!

There's more to life than just being happy.

loving the theory JuJu seems really firm on the clay and Maria a bit less firm I would prefer her facing Maria but I bet she can't wait to get back to Justin after the Porsche finale

Didn't Sam lose to Maria 6-0 6-1 the last time they played in Tokyo? I bet Sam wants revenge too!

So long...

I'm gonna make a Voodoo doll of Justine Henin mwahahahaha No just kidding I don't like those things xD

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
