Ha ha, you're right. Love it or hate it, this ASIC line of clothing is definitely a lot sexier than the Lacoste stuff was. I'm a bit divided: I thought the Lacoste dresses looked better, but as far as Sam is concerned I think if you've got it why not flaunt it, so I really like this sexy gear as well :drool:

Shame I missed that. For some strange reason they seemed to have done the coin toss with the players facing away from the cams (see the flickr series posted by Molly), so don't think there is a pic.

http://s018.radikal.ru/i516/1202/2b/8040396204c3.jpg

Sam doesn't look as happy after the event, but I don't think she looks that sad either tbh. I'm sure she was disappointed, but she also must have known that she had been beaten by someone who is playing simply amazing tennis.

I'm laughing hysterically.

That would definitely be a great way to go!

*Love* the hopping/dorky laughing but I also love the little smiles with slightly pursed lips 1st time when shes in mid-swing of her racket and 2nd time when shes finished talking just prior to hopping/dorky laughing. The 2nd time is the best (so to speak). She did it during her Chinese portrait interview too its adorbs. :hearts:

I'll have to go back later and make an arse of myself by getting someone to take my picture with it. :lol:

This is Charleston. This is Samantha Stosur: this morning on the Stadium.
Here are all the pictures (http://www.flickr.com/photos/51661206@N06/sets/72157629698598295/).

A few words from Charleston today.
I came to the Family Circle Cup area at 9:00am, by car, and simply park in front of the main gate. You can access the campus: it's free and open, before the week end. Some electrical engineers are working hard to set the place ready, but the place is almost empty.
I took some time to watch some players coming early, in order to set my camera the way I wanted (was just too sleepy in the plane yesterday). Next uploaded two Asics pictures in a lounge area (well, when they finish to load the bar and next open it). Time to circle around (that the local name:) and coming in front of me, main alley: Sam+Sim. I was the only one on the whole campus at the time, just changed my way and choose to seat on the Stadium. Two other people in the Stadium, I think one lady from the organization, she took a few pictures and left; and one fan I met on a side court.
That led us to the practice... First: no Dave. You will see her coach of the day on the pictures. New physical training with no rackets, alternate game positioning her FH onto different zones, physical aggressive series. No serve. Her BH is almost better than her FH, which is already impressive. I was surprised!*
I think I have never saw her play so effectively well: really sharp, powerful, fast (yet, not furious).. Her coach congratulated her many times, Sim too, some shots, and drop shots were truly amazing, and there were really many of them. Sam and Coach both discussed and exchanged a lot, on situations regarding the game: quite interesting.*
And finally Sam came right on me for her stretching: I was quite surprised too, and frankly, a little afraid of the situation, but I could not escape it. I was 150% sure to see her on site today, but maybe not on the stadium and so early. Well, I guess a fan has to adapt to the situation. Time for a beer now (the pub is 200 meters away from the stadium:)

Excellent pictures dude! What definition on the muscles and cool that Asics have customised her shoes with "Sammy".

Interesting report too. I wonder who the hitting partner/coach is. Anyone know? Also interesting about the FH/BH/drop shots. I'm really looking forward to seeing her play now. Are you going to be there for the week and can we look forward to more great pics and videos?:D

Lucky you to be in Charleston - I'm well jell.

Hmm..I'm trying to imagine what Butters' hair would look like on a non-cartoon person. The closest I can think of would be Jamie Oliver's hair.

More from Charleston.
For supporters, it's always a privilege to get close to one player. But when close means really close, day after day, the experience tends to change: after the excitement of the first hours, the real pleasure is to watch the different techniques Sam is perfecting. Here is what I could better notice.
Sam is burning so much energy to that goal during the practice sessions that it seems more a visceral envy than a code or a routine.*Sam's athleticism is polished, you clearly an easiness in her gesture but also pain due to the intensity.*
Her style is all the way elegant, sleek: a mix of simplicity and efficiency, always repeating the same powerfull sequences, some of them are unique. All combined, they are all focused to maximize the disrupt of the other player: in a big way, instantly. Her new coach has real problems to read her serve.*
Her coach really also pushed her, technically and physically, as she was asking of it.*
I have noted a real respect from the input of her coach and a delight to mutually exchange experience, sequence after sequence.*
What is great is to see her using to the edge her most impressive technique, the kick serve wide to massively open the court, in order and finish the point with a punchy FH along the line on the opposite side: repeating it during the warm up, and exactly mimetically repeating it during the match just after in the same efficient way.
She is sticking to practice what is good for his game, not all what is possibly playable, which is really a philosophy, I guess.*
During the day match, I clearly see the kick serve wide plus big FH sequence perfectly executed during the warm up and replicated during the match; the bagel is due for a good part to it, it was only the practice turned live: stick to what really works, and push it to the extreme.
The yellow session was by far the physical one: a 2 hours practice, under the heat. You probably also fell it with the intensity of the light, the dust all around. 50 people were watching.*
I could also talk with her at the end of that practice, she was really happy of her gale and being with fans around; I finally gave Sam a USB flash drive containing the Fribourg iBook Katja and your servant produced: such a nice day! You can see on the left picture the USB drive she is holding on her left hand with the two bottles, this picture is just priceless.

*A few words regarding Friday.
Sam played her first match with the cold. We were freezing but the good side is that the match was not exhausting, essentially technical, a question of focus more than anything else.
As a consequence of playing the morning, Sam was really warmed for the Venus match, and was immediately fit Vs. Venus, many opportunities to break her in the first set. The result of the first set is no surprise. From than point until 3*-2 in the third, she faced an enormous pressure on her serve, you really felt frustration. Her coach smoothly re assure her from the distance. Once she reached 4-2*, it became obvious Venus was tired and her will was shocked. Then, you know the story.
The sun came back only in the third set. So she really played only one of her 5 sets under some heat, I'm sure she is not exhausted to some extreme, the weather protected her: it might be very important for today.
One more detail: and the exit of the player tunnel, so many fans were looking for an autograph: believe it or not, she signed all the balls, it took time, the golf cart was following her all way long, then she jumped into it, and the car had to klaxon to find a way: really funny.

Just two funny things that happened during the VOSKOBOEVA match:

-During the first set, one audio promotional message went on during the game, "Please, support our troops in Afganisthan, etc". Sam stopped playing, but he message did not, it was read all long during one minute. Sam looked at the umpire like, what am I supposed to? Hilarious situation:)
-And a few games later, Sam hit a fantastic BH puchy return: and at that precise moment, the first thunder appeared, all the stadium went mega white flashed during 5 seconds during that night session. We were all, waoo!, that time maybe Sam hit the ball a little bit too hard and have tilted the whole thing :) (the game was suspended 5 minutes later, the the rain came around 30 min. later).

I'll refrain from commenting on the suits:lol: but I just noticed from this pic that Sam seems to be almost as tall or even taller than Jarka. I always thought Jarka was really tall. Checking the WTA website only added to the confusion, since it lists Sam as 5'7-3/4" (1.72) and Jarka as 5'7" (1.74). Someone has clearly botched the conversion. I figured that such a precise figure as 5'7-3/4" must be accurate (Sam must have been really frustrated when she pulled up short of 5'8":lol:), and that Jarka probably made an error converting from centimeters to feet and inches (which for a Slovakian brought up under the metric system must have felt like being asked to convert to cubits or something). A quick check on the metric converter reveals that Jarka is actually 5'9", so a bit taller than Sam, but not much. No wonder I always thought Dave was so tall, he's captain of a team of midgets (by tennis standards anyway;))

Good to see all these pics of the team looking so happy with the win. I actually found the reaction of Sam and the others a bit muted when she won the 3rd and decisive point. Maybe that was out of respect for the German team and fans, who must have felt like crap at that moment. You can see from these pics just how much it means to Sam and all the rest of the team. So cool! :)

Thanks Molly!:yeah:

The court looks like a hardcourt with a layer of blue chalk dust strewn over it.:help:

I just hate the render of blue clay. It's just bad taste.
I thought about a swimming pool with no water in it. Sam almost drowned into it. :help:
