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

Yeah....this is odd for it to still be so damp. But, there isn't much of a breeze on the court level here like there is on AG, so maybe thats why it dried much quicker? It's also cold and damp.

Kader is hanging around, and the tournament official dude is still kicking around at the clay as if testing it for the 100th time. Hopefully we will get a decision soon.

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

Ok - breaking news from FCC....

The sofas have arrived on center court! Looks like we will see Sam soon!

Kader is dancing. Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to have gotten frustrated and left the stadium. Lots of hardcores like us still remain, so we will do our best to cheer loudly!

Thanks for the support, guys!

Out on court. Wind seems to be causing problems for Eugenie's toss.

Sam's FH looking good.

Man, it's impossible to sleep when you know Sam's playing, isn't it? C'mon Sam, break her!

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

Sam gets the break with a little help from Eugenie.

But Eugenie is playing quite well when the rallies start. Sam will need to be on the ball.

*1-0

Blargh. Eugenie's returning well, and too many errors from Sam 1-1

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

Blergh 3-1

Really impressed with Eugenie, she's giving nothing away and playing aggressively. But I think Sam's lack of court time is showing at present.
