The winner will definitely come from Sam's half. I hope she ends up on top.

That's definitely a possibility, but to be honest I wouldn't be too unhappy if it did happen in this tournament. Wins against Kim and Serena would be quite nice as a lead-up to the AO. She only better not lose to Fran in Melbourne

Re: Brisbane 2012

Thats a tough draw, but could be a blessing to have some tough matches to begin the season. I think she can beat Kim if it comes to that, a match vs Serena would certainly be interesting.

Re: Brisbane 2012

I've missed live scoring with you guys and supporting Sam
Pop in and cheer (or cringe) Sam fans when time permits
I think Sam should go well here.
Second half of the draw is boring though

Re: Brisbane 2012

Good Luck to Sam!!! Really hope for a solid first tournament of 2012!

If she could get to the QF and finally nab a win over Kim i'd be ecstatic!!!!!!!

Re: Brisbane 2012

Not an easy half of the draw for Sam, but on the other hand I guess you gotta expect tough draws & matches from her now that she is in her career best form. The tougher the matches, the better I'd say.

Re: Brisbane 2012

Brisbane is on SevenTwo?! Anyone know about the AO and Sydney?

I guess it's time for me to buy a set top box.

EDIT: Benesova beat Safarova, which I think is better for Sam.

Re: Brisbane 2012

Holy top-heavy draw! Sam's up to the challenge though, and I'm uncharacteristically optimistic about how well she'll do in Brisbane, e.g., she'll get her first win against Kim here (fingers crossed).

GO SAM!!!

Re: Brisbane 2012

G'day folks. Happy New Year.

Man, I'm pumped for the new season. Can't wait to see Sam back in action, serving up aces and smashing down winners.

Good luck to Sam in Brisbane, let's start the year off with a win.

I agree. I wouldn't want to relive 2009. I guess the universe conspires to make it happen!
