a tough match for sam but she lost in a really close 76 63 match... she saved a few break points at 53 in the second but safina was too good and breezed through the last game, holding to love... bad luck for sam but safina is number 11 in the world and sams rankings will still improve nonetheless....

Good effort Sammy. Safina was playing really well last night, and I guess she must have been on song again today. Good luck in Sydney.

Such a shame :sad:
She was looking so good at her home tournament.
Ah well bring on the Medibank International.
Smash 'Em Sam.

sam had her chances especially when she held those 2 set pts on safina's serve but just couldn't convert. but hopefully she can learn from this & keeps on improving throughout the season. reaching the quarters in her home event is a pretty good result & i'm sure it will give her ranking a boost going into the AO.

She put up a great fight and can be really proud of that. Cant wait to see her at the Medibank
