Re: ...HardCourt

Yeah but at least she is winning a good 67% of them this match.

Re: ...HardCourt

Was hoping for a bagel, but Hamptom holds for 4-1. Keep the pressure on now Sam!

Re: ...HardCourt

Despite Sam's first DF (I suppose I asked for that by saying she should go for more on serve) she holds for 5-1.

Break for the breadstick now Sam so you can serve first in the second set!

Re: ...HardCourt

Love hold for Hampton. As expected she's getting more into the match now. Important for Sam to close out the set quickly now, so she can save her energy for a tougher fight in set 2.

Re: ...HardCourt

I don't think Sam's won a set this comfortably since the US Open. It's kind of freaking me out

Re: ...HardCourt

Couple of aces from Sam to take the first set

Excellent stats in that set, no BPs (don't think she was even taken to deuce on serve). If Sam can keep serving this well she should have it in the bag now.

Re: ...HardCourt

Sam won their last match 6-0 7-5, so she needs to stay focussed now.
