Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

I’m pretty happy with the match this morning.
Solid start, losing her game only once in two sets at the wrong moment, but correcting the thing in the third. Breaking, Broke back, but not losing her focus.
I saw someone we know running at the end of the second set as a temp’ coach.
She did great in fact. Fixing the thing by herself. Sure, we’re late in the season, but many would have pulled out.

Bertrand, you are the undisputed champion of the tantalizing cryptic remark

Any chance of telling us who this "someone we know" was?

I agree completely with your analysis of the match btw. This was exactly the kind of match Sam has been losing this year (and before), but despite a few sloppy errors here and there, she really never lost her focus. Doi reminded me a lot of Fran in the RG '10 final, with her great serving and smart use of angles. The big difference is precisely that Sam didn't get flustered this time.

Flipkens lost. Sam will move to 19 if she wins her semi.

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

^With her final points to defend in Moscow she'll have her work cut out to be ahead of Kirsten by years end, but she has a pretty good chance of staying in the top 20 at least. If she can win the Osaka title that should pretty much clinch that I think.

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

Thanks Bertrand

Drakulastream sounds a bit scary. Hopefully for Madison and not for Sammy

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

Maddy seems to struggle a bit with Sam's kickers (I write, as she hits a clean winner)

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

Sam serving well so far, but she will need to continue to do so. We saw what Maddy can do if Sam's serve is just a little bit off.
