Re: ...HardCourt II

Hi GermanBoy, glad to see my bossy and obnoxious rep comment had the desired effect

I always like seeing people stick up for Sam in GM, even though I'm too lazy to do it myself most of the time

Re: ...HardCourt II

^I have to admit I have been completely avoiding GM threads on Sam's matches lately. A bit gutless I know, but atm I just can't handle the aggravation of dealing with people who get their pleasure from gloating about other people's misfortunes.

I don't mind reasonable criticism, god knows Sam probably deserves a bit of that lately, but all the ugly gifs, smileys and "witty" insults are just bad for my blood pressure.

Hi GermanBoy, thanks for sticking up for Sam

Doha is going to be solid. I can feel it in my bones
Dubai is going to be better - at least Semis!

Yeah, I keep getting all worked up in frustration in response to some of the comments about Sam, writing out a long rant, and then not posting it because I decide that it really doesn't matter what people in GM think and that I can't be bothered into some long inane argument

That's the spirit Although it's quite an intimidating draw for Sam in Doha if she's lacking in confidence - lots of past and present top tenners in her way.

She plays with Lisa Raymond tomorrow, against Bettanie Mattek-Sands/Mirza

Can I have some of whatever you're having

Nah, theres no reason she cant have a good Doha and/or Dubai. Despite two losses there were some good signs at Fed Cup.. just needs to remember how to close out a match. And hopefully these DFs can begin to get out of her system too.

Re: ...HardCourt II

So JJ gets knocked out by Monica. So Sam gets her one round earlier (?) this year? Remember it going to 3 sets last year. Suppose Monica is better for Sam than JJ. Her doubles match should be next up on Court 4. Hope she gets a good match in with Lisa today.

Re: ...HardCourt II

StoRay snatches the first set 6-4! Sam double faulted once and got broken serving for the first set at 5-3 Thankfully they broke again to close the set Double faulted to start the second set but held to 15 in the end for 1-0 in the second...

Re: ...HardCourt II

StoRay breaks again for 4-0 in the second, the game practically gifted by BMS who double faulted twice at 15-30 to end the game. Sam's turn to serve!

Re: ...HardCourt II

Lisa holds comfortably to 15 for 5-2. I hope they break to wrap up the game. Or else....Sam has to serve to wrap the match up!

Good result but a bit worrying that Sam got broken twice. Still, in doubles that doesn't always mean bad serving. Much more important that she's stopped leaking DFs.

Definitely happier with Monica than JJ as Sam's 2R singles opponent. Last time they played Sam didn't seem to be too bothered by Monica's eccentric style of play, even though she did drop a set. Even an out of form JJ is probably more dangerous.
