Clay season!

First up: Charleston.

Can our lady defend her title? Will she have a form turnaround?

So long...

Re: Clay season!

Would like to see it happen, but just can't see her playing well enough to defend her title. After watching her level of play so far this year, I'd be surprised if she makes it as far as the semis/final.

Prove me wrong Sammy

The sad thing is, she is entirely capable of owning this clay season...but her stupid drop in form might prevent her from doing so

Re: Clay season!

It's funny people keep going about how bad she is since start of year. I wouldn't blame them because she has not played to her seeding in any of the tournaments.

But... if you compare her results with last year's, it's not terribly far off.

Sydney - 1R (2010), 2R (2011)
Australian Open - 4R (2010), 3R (2011)
Fed Cup - 2 wins (2010), 2 losses (2011 playing much tougher opponents)
Dubai - 1R (2010), QF (2011)
Indian Wells - SF (2010), 3R (2011)
Miami - QF (2010), 4R (2011)

Defending Charleston is a tough ask but I hope she at least gets to SF/F.

So long...

Re: Clay season!

Hopefully she finds some sort of form on clay. I dont want to expect too much from Charleston, a QF though would be nice.

Re: Clay season!

Sam is skipping Fed Cup, which is a good thing I think, that way she doesnt fly to Aus, have to fly back and its against a team Aus should beat without Sam anyways.

Re: Clay season!

Great start in the clay season I guess Didn't watch the match though, I just followed the live scores. Anyone who saw the match?
