I really assumed that she was going to win this match. I guess I underestimated both Iveta, and how much of an effect playing in Australia has on Sammy.
She was very nervous, from the beginning to the end.

Re: Brisbane 2012

Oh well Sam hasn't changed I guess.

I can't give a damn about Brisbane or Sydney. Give me the surprise in-form performance at Australian Open please!

So long...

Wow, I'm touched, seriously. I missed all you guys too, especially after hearing that Sam had lost to Benesova of all people. Been on the road all week, ironically enough in Australia, arriving in Brisbane just hours after Sam bombed out, but have been so tied up I haven't even had the chance to follow live scores. After Sam lost I didn't even have the heart to go online to seek consolation. Hopefully she can turn things around in Sydney, although the draw there certainly hasn't done her any favours. As of Monday I'll be back in Europe, just in time to resume the customary pattern of huddling over the live-scores alternating curses and cheers as Sam continues to put us all through the wringer (hoped we were over all that, but obviously Sam is still Sam)

I agree in theory, but in all honesty Sam needs a strong run in Sydney to have a realistic chance of pulling off another surprise in Melbourne. Another first or second round loss is just not going to give her the momentum she'll need.
