16/16 W-UE. Pretty good under the circumstances.

Decent stats. First serve percentage low but good success when in. Still at 60-70% but managed to cruise through that. So pleased to see her get a solid win and hopefully this will give her some confidence. And wins the match on her first match point which is nice.

Just 1 SP and now just the one MP. Very businesslike from Sammy

Hmmm, as I remember it Peakmantha only deigns to win matches on the eighth or ninth MP, so this stat has me worried

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

Looking at Peng and Sam's H2H, it seems to be very surface dependent. Sam's never really been challenged on clay, but their hardcourt matches have been tightly contested. Hopefully the trend will continue.

From what I've seen of her, Peng likes to force the pace. She won't like this slow uneven bounce I don't think. As long as Sam keeps her head like she did today, I think she should be fine.

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

Now what we really need is for Woz to bomb out in Rome and for Sam to reach the quarters. This will allow Sam to jump back into 9th spot and have a slight chance of being seeded 8th for the French Open (Kerber pulling out of Rome with an abdominal strain doesnt sound too good for Angie either).
