Re: Sammy on Grass

Dave Taylor was saying they would be studying how Nadal adapts to grass. Learning from the King of Clay how to be Wimbledon champion!

Sam said herself she would have to perfect her slice serve better for the grass. Hope she does! Can't wait for Eastbourne.

So long...

She's right Serve is sooooo important on grass, the more varied your serve is, the better. I'm convinced she can do well on grass with her serve. If only she could improve her slice backhand as well

Re: Sammy on Grass

Eastbourne draw's finally out
Sam's playing against Melanie Oudin in the first round and Keothavong or Hantuchova in the second
She could meet Schiavone in the semis

Just noticed the Clijsters/Wickmayer R1

One match at a time.
I hope she reaches the QFs, would give her some confidence going into Wimbledon, even though grass isnt her best surface but yeah one match at a time.

Some great first round matchups!

sam stosur. maria sharapova. jarmila gajdosova
dellacqua.kvitova.tomljanovic.safarova.

Yeeeaaaah I knooow "one match at a time", that's the motto
But I was just having a look at her draw and just gave the names of some of her potential next opponents

Interesting draw, can't wait

Re: Sammy on Grass

Haha yeah, like Matt said previously, one match at a time should be our slogan. Reckon I should put that in the introduction page?
