Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros
I’m sure the calf issue is not over. Sam cancelled at the last minute her practice which was set at 12:00pm before the match yesterday, and did not practice the day before, Tuesday. Probably to keep her leg fresh (Tuesday), and the issue is not resolved (Wednesday). She skipped a few rallies during the match and used her power to finish many points, even with her BH (btw that proved to be really effective).
I don't know if she can sustain long rallies or beside long matches, but it will bother her more than a few days. For me it looks like she can play and win, but not the same way. She can’t do all what she usually can. But winning without 100% of your abilities is also part of the job.
The only risk is to damage yourself by accident, which the tape is set to prevent from, I guess. That’s a trade-off.
