Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

This is one of those days when it's really great to be a Sam fan. They don't come too often, but this is the second one in a couple of months, so I'm not complaining. Hopefully tomorrow will be an even better day

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

The final starts at 12 noon local time. That's another 5 am start for me, but it's a Sunday, and even if it wasn't there is no way I would miss it.

So excited

I might apply for the job. Just need to tell her to keep on doing whatever it is she's doing

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

Sam on tomorrow's singles final:

"I played Eugenie one time but I had to pull out injured during the match," Stosur said. "It was an injury from Indian Wells, a pulled calf muscle. So I wasn't really ready to play in Charleston, and I wasn't really paying much attention in that match, so I'm going to have to do a bit of homework tonight."

Interesting comment, in more ways than one. It puts her performance in that match into a bit of perspective. She was not only injured, but it suggests that neither she nor DT had really done any serious homework on Genie before the match. Which kind of makes me wonder why that would be.

Sammy

So awesome. Two first round exits at Beijing, and now two finals in Osaka. How's that for non-linear?

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

Sydney 2005 she lost in a three set singles final to Molik, and got a walkover in the doubles final against Dementieva/Sugiyama with Bryanne Stewart.

So this is the second time she's been in the final of both singles and doubles in the same tournament, and the first time in eight years.

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

How dumb of me. I was at that Molik Stosur final.

I always know SP will solve the problem

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

Sam back to sucky draws in Moscow. R1 Kanepi, likely R2 and R3 Cornet and Ivanovic.

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

I am ok with that draw. Kanepi on these courts will be easier and is a head case. She has Cornets measure. And Ana can't play two good weeks in a row anymore. Bring it!

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

Not the best draw, but not a nightmare either. I don't think Kanepi's been in great form; and depending on what happens tomorrow, I might not be too upset with an early loss in Moscow. Anyone know if she's entered in doubles there?

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

You guys are right, it's not a disastrous draw by any means. My main worry is that Sam won't have any real chance to practice on the courts before the tournament.

It's such a weird surface, it will take some time for her to adjust, and I would prefer that to be on a practice court against someone like Lauren Davis, rather than on a match court against a player with huge weapons like Kanepi, however rusty she is.

Not sure about doubles, but Sveta is playing and might be keen to play doubles as well as singles. I'm sure she'd understand though if Sam said she wanted to stick to singles next week. How hard can it be for her to find an alternative doubles partner in Moscow?
