Stosur finally won 6-3, 4-6, 6-2. She finished the match how she started today - hitting deep in the court and finishing points at the net

This is at least reassuring

Go Sammy!!

Hard to say how this match will work for Sam. On one hand she'll be more used to the conditions than Venus. On the other hand, playing in such cold conditions is bound to be tough on Sam's body, and under these circumstances it seems less than ideal for Sam to have to go back out after just a couple of hours. Hopefully she'll still be loose enough to go for her shots.

Bingo! We need to recruit Cartman into Sam's family of fans. He won't take the kind of crap from her that we do

Hopefully closing out the last set well plus the good serve stats especially in the third will give her some confidence going into the match later.

Oh dear, Sabine has retired against Serena. Sam's rest looks like being very short.

Simon Reed just said Sam's match will not start for another forty mins. Apparently she told organizers she won't play any earlier than that irregardless if the Serena's match ends early. So any 30 mins to rest. Poor Sabine

2-1 Go SamSam

I feel a bit bad cheering against Vee. She seems like a really mellow and lovely person.

Ah, SilverPersian. I was wondering if you managed to wake up for this

yeah, I agree, I've always liked Venus. I look at it as cheering for Sam though, not cheering against Venus. There are certainly players that I blatantly cheer against, but Venus isn't one of them. I would like Sam to take his handily but I don't want Venus to be humiliated.
