I wouldn't mind that either, but I also kinda want Clijsters to get one more before she retires. If they end up in the final against each other I'm not gonna know which one to cheer for.

Sammy's lost the plot at the moment. She's rushing her shots, and looks tight. Settle down Sam, you can still win this!

Re: It's that time of the year again! That's right...it's Clay Time!

I think in the past year she's demonstrated a very good ability to kind of "reset" for the third set of matches, so hopefully she can flick that switch today. Although breaking immediately back here would be even better.

Sam, sweetie, get your service game together....I don't even care if you lose this set, just get your service game back on track and hold! You haven't even held serve once on this set! Hold your serve and get back on track for the third set!

I still think Sammy is favorite to win this match as long as she doesn't panic. She's making life too easy for Venus atm, but if she can start to put on a bit of pressure I'm pretty sure cracks will appear in Venus' game.

Good hold under pressure. This gives her some kind of platform to regroup.
