Re: It's that time of the year again! That's right...it's Clay Time!
^I'm also quietly optimistic about Sam's clay prospects. I don't think she's been playing particularly well, but she's shown a lot of grit the last couple of months, and I think that's a good omen for clay-court success. Unlike faster surfaces, there are few if any players who can just blow Sam away on clay, so if she keeps fighting I think she should win a lot of matches. And if she can chalk up a good number of wins by fighting hard she should be able to play herself into decent form by the time RG comes around.
