I don't know what to say. Not looking at GM. Can't believe some of the shit on her facebook page, from people who claim to be fans. Fuckwits.

So disappointed
That must have been hard to watch live. Strangely enough she has ended up with more points this year out of the oz series than last year.

Next years schedule should be Hopman Cup, Hobart then Australian Open. Lol

We will all laugh about this when she wins Charleston and the French Open this year

@BenRothenberg: Stosur just delayed press by 25 minutes. This may not be pretty...

Poor Sammy

They are going to cross to it live in Australia. I think this one is going to be raw emotion.

Just heard Darren(ESPN) mentioned that he passed by Sam at the corridor and she was very emotional.

Re: ...HardCourt II

She handled that press conference really well. So much better than last year. She was brutally honest in her assessment of what she did right and wrong and admitted to choking. Even had a laugh.I actually think there is lots of hope for our Sammy after that!

Re: ...HardCourt II

Its hard to feel anything but down now but this is cracking me up:

Courtney Nguyen ‏@FortyDeuceTwits
Sam Stosur's presser sounds like the tennis equivalent of "I Dreamed a Dream".

Anna L ‏@anna_tennisfan
@FortyDeuceTwits "I dreamed a dream of times gone by... When shots went in and I hit winners... I dreamed my serve would never die..."
"I dreamed the crowd would be forgiving... Then I was young and unafraid... And break points came and weren't wasted..."
"There was a challenge to be made... An ace to hit; Victory tasted... But the doubles come at night... With a shank as loud as thunder... As they tear your hope apart... As they turn your dream to shame" #LesMistosurables

Courtney Nguyen ‏@FortyDeuceTwits
I'm going to sing "With a shank as loud as thundeeeeeeeeeeeerrr..." forever now. Kudos and a half to you, @anna_tennisfan

She has worked with with a sports psychologist before though and it obviously hasn't worked. You cant always fix someone, sometimes if its just in their nature its hard to shake.
I actually am studying to become one haha, but I think I'll be a bit late to help her :P

You are right that some people just can't be fixed/helped. I wonder how many different people have worked with her. Would like to know what is going through Ruth Anderson's head right now

Re: ...HardCourt II

Just saw Sam's press on tv, not as emotional as I thought. Hope she gets over it soon, bounce back quickly and has a great year!

She is funny I wonder if she's still a die-hard fan of Stosur like she used to?!
