My predictions are a final at Charleston, a win at Struttgart, a fourth round at Madrid, a semi-final at Rome and finally a win at Roland Gallos.

Fantastic if you turn out to be right (), but that would almost double the number of singles titles she's won in her whole career! I prefer to be cautiously optimistic to avoid searing disappointment. A repeat win in Charleston might be feasible.


It's later than you think...

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

I think Sam will beat Serena on clay, and I can't see anyone else in Charleston who she can't beat, so she should be favorite there. In Stuttgart Sam would probably still be seeded outside the top 4 and would need to get through a slam-like field before she's fully found her clay legs, so I don't expect too much there. Madrid is hardly even clay at all, so I think she will go there with a view to just keeping her arm in, but I expect her to have a good run again in Rome. If all goes to plan (that's always the case with Sam, right?) she should go into RG in peak form and blow the opposition away.

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

I dont want to expect too much but I cant help feeling confident for this clay season. Maybe because I think she surely cant do what she did last season But apart from Australia she hasnt been in too bad form, in her past two losses she showed good signs, especially against Serena. IF she can kick her serve back into action then she can do some real damage in the clay season.

Cant wait

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.

I am hoping for a win in either Charleston, Stuttgart or Rome and definitely RG.

Come on, time to give the other girls some "sleepless nights" (quoting a badass Aussie swimmer).

So long...

Sam is very good at giving people sleepless nights. Unfortunately that mainly applies to her fans

So true.

She does cause a few sleepless nights for some players, unfortunately other players cause sleepless nights for her.
