Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

@Sinclair: I'm the same way, I look at a draw now and say, "yeah, Sam could lose to her", "and her", "and her", and so on and so on. It really doesn't matter who it is, she could draw the legendary Brie Whitehead and I'd be thinking that she could lose. So SP's point about it not being a feature of this particular draw is spot on.

Hopefully that'll all turn out to be unnecessarily pessimistic and the feeling will pass. I want to use "bow down bitches" at least once this Asian swing, it's such a great line

Good news re coverage:

RT @josemorgado: Tokyo WTA will have 3 streamed courts all week. 50 live matches. Fantastic.

Cornet vs Sammy should have some so drama per usual. Haven't worked up if it will be some ungodly hour in Europe yet though but at least it's streamed

Awesome. Can't wait to see Sammy wildly charging the net at every opportunity

Should be a good time for me - something in the evening.

If the 4 matches before don't get endlessly bogged down it should start around 12 noon in W. Europe, that would be around 11 am your time I think. If that's the case I will be able to watch, but I have to leave to catch a flight at around 2 pm, so I hope things don't get dragged out. I'll be away for most of the week and probably won't catch any matches for the next few rounds, so hopefully Sammy will kick some butts so I can catch up with her again in the SF.

@SvetlanaK27: We (me and Sam)did not get doubles WC to play in Tokio , this decision i wont ever understand ... But good luck to the rest of the teams )

What a bizarre decision on the tournament's part - 2 grand slam singles and doubles champions pairing up and they rejected them? Nevertheless good to know that they decided to play some more. They are both playing @ Beijing and Moscow so hopefully they will play together there!

Sounds decent timing wise - particular nice that Sam is playing on Sunday

Exactly!

It's this kind of crap that is killing the doubles tour. Any tournament with the slightest interest in promoting its doubles competition would have welcomed Sam and Sveta with open arms.

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

The WCs went to:
Cibulkova/Erakovic
KDK/Parra-Santonja
Flipkens/Kvitova

I know I can't possibly judge this fairly, but while I can understand they'd want to get hometown hero KDK into the draw, I don't know how on Earth they passed over Sam/Sveta for the other two teams?

Samantha Stosur

Jarmila Wolfe|Svetlana Kuznetsova|Vera Zvonareva|Francesca Schiavone|Zhang Shuai|Sloane Stephens|Ashleigh Barty
Andy Murray|Stanislas Wawrinka|Ryan Harrison|John Isner|Jack Sock

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

I'm probably only going to have time to watch the first set, so I hope Sam gets off to a good start.
