After reading some of the posts/threads here, now I know you can never really assume Sam will get through the first round (no matter who she plays) haha. So I'm pretty bummed right now I didn't go to the UO last monday. But well, better luck next time I guess..

ps. sorry if my english sucks, but I'm not used to speak english so I'm trying my best

I was impressed with her quiet, classy tennis and her sportsmanship. Funny - I was a huge Mauresmo fan at the time, but I remember thinking 'here's a player that I will always cheer for' and 'why has she stopped playing doubles with Raymond...' After the match, standing near the entrance to the court, I thanked her for playing a great game. She looked at me as she walked past, smiled a little smirky, shy smile, and said "Thank you" in that adorable accent. Not at all snobby or pretentious, just super cool.

So after lurking on a off for a few years, I figured it was time to join. I am so totally impressed with how you guys maintain respect for one another here (the GM forum intimidates the hell out of me), and I hope I can occasionally add to the discussion.

Side note: Bertrand, your videos are gorgeous - I've been a subscriber on your YouTube channel for a while! Love them!
Welcome! It's always good to have more people here

Smash 'em Sam
