I've been blown away by Sam's practice today and the essence of the pictures I could grab Court 1, today. Truth to be told, I do not know why it happened today: with such accuracy and intensity. Maybe you can feel the same. Yes, Raj is back, with Dave.
There are days in life you just cannot forget: for me it is one, and it was a privilege.

Something happened today:
Serena Williams' ankle deeply hurts her and was covered with some massive tape. She could not run normally and chose to end her practice quite rapidly on Court 1 today.
I'm not a medic and have no expertise of what it does really mean. Sam on "normal days and conditions" on red clay can beat anyone, with the exception of Serena. So I guess this is an interesting news.

Very true (thanks Molly and Bertrand :worship:). Would love to have heard how she went about ordering a flat white in Paris :lol:

B.

I'm conflicted on this. It would be a disaster for the tournament and for Serena personally if she had to pull out injured. She's been so pumped up for this tournament and has probably never played better on clay than she has this year, so it would be a bitter disappointment for her if she can't compete.

On the other hand, I think she's the only player Sam may not be able to beat if she plays her best tennis in Paris, so ..... :unsure:

Good to hear that Raj is back in Sam's team :cheer:

The same thing happened when she was still with Lacoste, and was wearing that lovely purple and black dress. When she'd wear shoes or a hat that didn't match her dress, she'd play poorly. I have never been superstitious about anything, but I have become very much so with respect to what Sam is wearing.

The dampener she has on her tennis racquet is also an issue. I have noticed a few times when she plays poorly she has some random dampener that I had never seen her use before. She should know that she needs to use the smiley face or the yin yang. At the FO, I noticed that Sam had the babolat french open dampener. When she got to the SF, Errani had the smiley face - not just any smiley face, but the exact same brand smiley face that Sam usually uses. That gave me a bad feeling about that match. I can't see what one she had at s'Hergenwhatever, but it was yellow. She has a couple of different yellow dampeners though, so I can't tell if this one was the smiley face.

Okay, now that I sound crazy, I'll stop.

It really fucked me up when I saw Errani with the smiley face! :lol: Just the day before, I ordered the babolat french open dampener. I was so sure that Sam was going to make the final. I'm playing a clay tournament next month, and I thought that it would give me good luck. Then, when the match started, and I saw Errani with the smiley face, I got a very bad feeling. After the match ended, I called to cancel the order, and they kept trying to get me to not cancel it. The girl on the phone offered me free tennis balls and I said no. Then she offered me free tennis balls and free shipping and I still said no. Finally I told her that after seeing Sam lose with that dampener while Errani had the smiley face dampener, I just couldn't get it now, and she laughed and said she understood.

:lol: I have that RG dampener myself - but the one I really like is the little goldfish bowl complete with goldfish. Don't think I ever saw Sam with that one. She was using a ladybug one for a while before RG and I know she always used to use the yin-yang.

But more to the point, I can't believe we take note of these silly little details - what obsession! :help:

Minutes after being photographed stuffing her clothes into a machine in some grotty laundrette, or sitting on a concrete post munching on a greasy sandwich outside a roadside diner, Sam pulls down a hidden zipper on her unassuming outfit to reveal a glittering full-length evening gown, and walks off with a billionaire on one arm and a movie star on the other to break the bank at the Monte Carlo casino.

And the pics are probably photoshopped, as she is probably such a diva that she would not dare to put her hands on those nasty washers and driers, and for that matter, she probably refuses to touch dirty laundry too.

you were both right. I got a hold of the original pic that had been photoshopped to look like she was in a laundrette and guess what? turns out it was her arriving at monte carlo in her private yacht. hadn't pulled down her zipper yet, maybe because glittering evening gowns don't take an occasional splash very well.

Yes, it's just such a shame that some vicious haters twist things around to make it appear otherwise sometimes. Like when they manipulated the audio in Maria's interview, when she said of Aga "She's such a lovely girl! I DO hope she has a safe flight back to Poland", to make it sound like she said something entirely different.

Yeah, evil haters....

Ya know, as much as I dislike Sharapova's diva like attitude, her glare, and her screech, I am warming up to her. I think I mentioned before that I found her somewhat endearing in the Chelsea Handler interview. More recently, I lurked in her fan forum, and it seems that a lot of her fans are bitchy gay men (and I mean that as a very positive thing), and I instantly understood the Sharapova love. A large percentage of my friends are bitchy gay men, and although they don't follow tennis, and don't know who she is, if they were tennis fans I could see them liking her quite a bit. We have a party every year where everyone dresses up as their favorite character from AbFab, Kath and Kim, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, ABBA, etc. I could honestly see Sharapova becoming one of the choices. That thought made me like her a bit more. I am probably never going to become a big fan, but I feel like I understand a bit more why some like her so much.

I don't think I could ever be a fan of Masha either, but I like the following things about her:

-this is probably a sign of my inner bitchy gay, but I do find some of her burns funny (if a bit immature), such as allez up your f**king ass, back to Poland, Jim Courier's hair, etc.
-her ability to go into "unstoppable diva mode" on the tennis court. I've only seen her beaten once when she's been in her "special place" (against Serena in the AO in...2005ish).

you were both right. I got a hold of the original pic that had been photoshopped to look like she was in a laundrette and guess what? turns out it was her arriving at monte carlo in her private yacht. hadn't pulled down her zipper yet, maybe because glittering evening gowns don't take an occasional splash very well.

I don't think I could ever be a fan of Masha either, but I like the following things about her:
-her flat footed, awkward running style
-this is probably a sign of my inner bitchy gay, but I do find some of her burns funny (if a bit immature), such as allez up your f**king ass, back to Poland, Jim Courier's hair, etc.
-her ability to go into "unstoppable diva mode" on the tennis court. I've only seen her beaten once when she's been in her "special place" (against Serena in the AO in...2005ish).

For me, it's an endearing quality. I've never liked the screeching or the drama, but when she turns on the 'unstoppable diva,' I know it's going to get ugly for her opponent.
Oh, and I usually become an instant Masha fan whenever she's playing Serena. :cool:

Such a pity that DivaSam is stuck jet-setting and high-rolling while those poor humble girls are stuck at home watching their nail polish dry. Ah, such is life.

^I can't say I find the "unstoppable diva" endearing, but I do admire it to some extent. I'd admire it even more if not for the fact that I think that it's more or less second nature to her, not something she's had to work particularly hard for.

However, she has shown that she is prepared to work really hard be as good a player as she possibly can be, as shown by the long and difficult road she's followed to come back from her shoulder injury. That determination and drive is one of the few qualities I think she shares with Sam, together with the fact that it is something of an ongoing struggle, with lots of ups and downs. I admire that a lot in both of them.

It's a bit comforting to see that in most of these pics, Sam looks relaxed and happy to be with her friends. To be ranked #5 in the world is pressure enough. Anything she can do to remain calm and stress-free going into a grass tournament is a step in the positive direction. At least that's the image she's projecting.

She consciously dismantles the consistency of the ball with that amount of top spin: you clearly see the fibers teared off from the ball on the picture.

Yes, exactly. It's funny, there was a discussion thread a while ago on GM about players' superstitions, and some posters were calling the practice of always choosing the least fluffed up ball for the first serve - something Sam always does - a superstition. But when you see the amount of spin Sam puts on the ball it is clear that for her in any case it's not a superstition, it's just good sense. Especially when you consider that the extra drag caused by fluffiness neutralizes the spin she works so hard to generate.

:) What I can't understand is how she can do 'that finger thing' with her left hand and not break or injure something! She's been doing it for years, so I guess it doesn't feel as awkward to her as it looks.

As for her grip....well, that's where the magic spin happens, right? :D Love the way you can see the yellow threads suspended in the air on that one shot!! It really makes me appreciate how much strength she has to be able to generate that much power while making the ball spin so much with such an extreme grip.

Especially when you consider that the extra drag caused by fluffiness neutralizes the spin she works so hard to generate.

Most GM regulars don't know anything about tennis. A while back they were bashing her record on grass, claiming that with her game she should be better on grass than she is on clay. I tried to explain that clay creates greater friction so it increases her spin, while grass neutralizes the spin. They truly don't understand how topspin or slice have different results on different surfaces. Look at the way they bash Aga Radwanska for daring to try to create angles as opposed to just hitting the ball hard. All that most posters on GM care about is that a player hits really hard, likes to go shopping, and acts like a bitch.

It is really interesting how you can look at the pictures from s'Hertogenbosch and you can tell that she was off that day. Even if you hadn't seen the match and didn't know she lost, you could easily guess that she lost just from the pictures. Her pictures from Wimby are completely different.

And, in keeping with the topic of superstition, as well a conversation from last week about het outfits matching and her dampeners, her shoes now match her outfit (obviously since they are all white), and she is now using the ladybug dampener so maybe that will bring her good luck. I was worried that she would be using some scary babolat wimbledon dampener reminiscent of the RG dampener, and that all of her opponents would be using the smiley face.

Cool pic Jo, thanks for posting! They both look really sweet together.:hearts:

Edit: Just saw that Sam's wearing a Netherlands asics t-shirt. At least she got something nice out of her visit to 's Hertogenbosch :sobbing:

Well Bernie is 6'5", that would make anyone look a bit like an oompa loompa (including Matthew).

:lol: at how Sam wears a cap almost everywhere she goes.

Yay for Sam's return to a different-looking Wimbledon!

I'm kind of jealous of Matthew Mitcham....plus I don't like some of his recent comments regarding the Olympics, but I'm glad he posted that pic regardless.

^I wonder what's different? I'm hoping the courts will be a bit harder and dryer than first time around, and are still not completely recovered from the wear and tear of the Wimbledon tournament. That would suit Sammy's game better I think.

What did Mitcham say about the Olympics?

What did Mitcham say about the Olympics?

Since this is probably not the right place to discuss it, I'll just suggest that you do a google search on the recent controversy surrounding the living arrangements in the Olympic Village and who gets to share a room with who. People on both sides of the argument have made some rude and inappropriate comments, Mitcham included. Only my opinion. :cool:

But as far as what's different -- I wonder if it's just the all-around atmosphere? I mean, the most traditional, prestigious, high-class, hallowed tennis club of the world is about to become an olympic venue....there's got to be a bit more of a sports arena feel to it, right? I don't know.

And you make a good point about the condition of the grass. I doubt there's been sufficient time for it to recover, so the dry, harder surface might be good for Sam.

Edited to add: Thanks for posting these pics, Jo and Vaidisova!

That color is a little bit surprising. More than unconventional: in such a conventional area. Maybe the Madrid spirit in search of a flashy sequel? :devil:
What about the outfit color(s)? Hope Gold remains yellow, BTW. :lol:

Maybe that's what Sam meant by Wimbledon looking different? That's an awfully festive purple. Just seeing the outfits in colors other than white will be a change.

...and just the fact that I am posting about outfit colors and background ambience at wimby is proof that it's time for some tennis to start!!

I gather there was some controversy about supposedly differential living arrangements offered to gay vs straight athletes. Storm in a teacup apparently and fortunately it seems to have largely blown over, so I didn't bother to dig too deep for the sordid details.

Just hope the rain stays away...
