Re: Sydney 2012.

4-1

She's making strange decisions on court and has no confidence in anything she's doing, except for pounding the FH from the back of the court. That's not going to be enough to beat Franny.

I can't deal with how Sam's playing. Evidently, the combo of playing in Australia against Fran is too much for her.

Re: Sydney 2012.

I almost wish my internet would go out so I wouldn't have to watch anymore of this.

I know what you mean. Some of her shot selections are a bit cringeworthy.

Although Schiavone isn't giving her any rhythm.

Re: Sydney 2012.

Two SPs saved.

She's at least giving me some hope for the second set.

Hey SilverPersian! I've been browsing but not posting. I've had some family things going on as my Dad's pretty sick. I still check in to see what's going on with the boards, and I've been watching the matches online. It's good to have a bit of time to post while watching the match, although I wish the match was going better!

Re: Sydney 2012.

Oh Sam. Franny takes the first set 6-2.

The only positive is that she doesn't appear to be getting angry at herself like she was against Benesova.

Sorry to hear about your Dad

It would be nice if Sam could give you something a little nicer to focus on
