Yeah I know. Cause now someone said she's in Maria's qtr. Think Ill just wait until full draw comes out.
Regardless I think Sam is in the tougher half.

Its JJ vs Dani in the first round which means JJ is around Sam somewhere...

Yes, I just saw somebody else posted she's in the Li-Vika quarter. Unless she picks up her game in the early rounds Na might not be a bad R4 for Sam if that's true. At least Sam's got the H2H to give her extra confidence.

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros



No-one know what is going on, and reading this discussion it looks like Sam's quarter contains Vika, Masha, Petra, and Na

Damn twitter!

Well that's good news, because once she's disposed of all of them, it will be plain sailing till the final

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

I think Sammy was on line 112... if there is 128 in the draw that means she's in Maria's quarter right?

And if JJ is up against Hantuchova... that's Sammy's potential matchup R3

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

From Twitter:

So Sam's 1R is Kimiko, possible 3R JJ, possible 4R Petra, possible QF Maria, possible SF vika/li.

How pleasant. Good news is she could play herself into form with each match with this draw. One match at a time was never more relevant.

Possible R2 against Davis or Mladenovic...

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

JJ is about the toughest seed she could have drawn in R3, so that's tough. Petra in R4 is no cakewalk either. Hopefully Sam will find her a-game before she plays them, if they don't lose before then, which could happen as well.

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

Oh dear.

Really tough one for Sam. Masha would probably be my least favourite QF match up for Sam, because she'll always play well and is very unlikely to crash out early. And then she needs to beat JJ and Petra just to get there

Still, just think 2010. No draw is too tough for Samambo

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

For the moment I'm looking on the bright side, she has two winnable matches to start things off. After that, anything is possible. If she wants to win the title she'll probably have to beat these girls at some point (Maria at least, and players who present a comparable challenge to JJ and Petra).

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

I actually prefer Sammy face her tough nemeses here at RG... she seems to come out swinging more freely (ie. against Henin, Williams in 2010).

Also makes it less disappointing than if she loses to someone we 'expect' her win against at RG...

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

Mladenovic in R2 might not be a pushover btw. Tall, young, with some decent results recently.

Was thinking the same... have the same awful vibe I got from her matchup against Rus at Wimbly last year

... but I guess one match at a time

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

Definitely not a cake walk draw but at least its on Clay at RG! The bottom half is stacked....but better for Sam to be an underdog I suppose.

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

Least the first two matches will play into form I hope. Looks like we need some 2010-esque wins after that
