sammy beat her in the 2nd round of both the girls prefferd hard(rebound ace) surface at the aussy open and sammy came out on top in 2 sets.
Sam reached the 2nd round last year of RG and Ivanovic reached the QF.
Sam has been playing very well on clay lately and ivanovic has had an injury since wich forced her to withdraw out of Rome last week.
i really cant pick this one,i think if sammy was to win it be in a tight 3 setter :bounce:

nah sammy 7-5 6-2. GO ALICIA!!!

I like both girls. But if Sammy will win this match then I think it would be a 3-setter.

hope sammy can win this one, don't want to make predictions about this match, hope she plays well.
May 27th, 2006, 05:20 AM
i reckon yes and in 3

I think (and hope) Sam can win. She is in possibly the best form of her life outside of Australia, and has already beaten her this year.
May 28th, 2006, 08:37 AM
I hope so but im not confident!
She needs a good start to the match!
Can't let Ana build her confidence early!
May 30th, 2006, 11:46 PM
she lost 6-0 6-3!! i was a bit surprised. She didn't put up much of a fight

I watched the match and Sami was just feeding into Ana's hands and Ana was scary with how hard she hit the ball keeping Sam pinned. And when some did get a rare opportunity she failed to capitalise half the time. She did show good fight towards the end though which was good to see.

Wow, Ana Really Comprehensively Beat Sam..

Sam didnt play very well she didn't hit it deep only hit 47% of first serves 12winners to 16unforced errors. She didn't come into the net much and when she did she won 5 of 6 points and won only 1 of 7 break points

Didnt Sam beat Ivanovic in Australia when Gigi was her coach. Did i miss why gigi got fired. It seems like she was doing better when gigi was her coach. And where is the new coach Mark?
