this is not what we really wanted to see :eek: hope sammy can somehow pull a win off Venus, fingers crossed. shame they have to play against each other cause Venus is one of my faves.

Apr 7th, 2007, 11:28 PM

Apr 7th, 2007, 11:38 PM
oh s***. What an awful draw.

GOOD LUCK Sammy. Do your best, that's all anyone can ask for.

Apr 7th, 2007, 11:58 PM
Well at least she doesn't have any points to defend. Who knows, Sam might shock us. Sucks for her though :(

Apr 7th, 2007, 11:59 PM

Apr 9th, 2007, 01:15 PM
Shocking! But lets hope for the best....Smash her sam!!

Apr 10th, 2007, 01:17 AM
Sammy playing third on centre court!!! (I know thats only because of Venus but GO SAMMY) The two matches before her (1. Ruano Pascual vs. Schiavone
2. Golovin vs. Cibulkova) should be won easily by the favourites so sammy should be on around 2:30-3 aest

Apr 10th, 2007, 08:08 AM
good luck sam!

Apr 10th, 2007, 09:50 AM

S Williams retires from her first round match..... so sammys draw would have opened up.... IF SHE DIDNT PLAY THE MOST DANGEROUS FLOATER IN THE DRAW.... this is such a sammy thing to happen

Has anyone noticed that Sam has now become very consistent she betas all the players ranked below her! This was her first 1st round loss for the year!! But for someone reasosn she just isnt challenging the top players she is not even coming close to winning. She has a big serve but also gets broken alot! She has the game i just wish she could put it all together and start challening the top players!!

Apr 11th, 2007, 08:31 AM
yeah sam has trouble keeping her came together consistently sometimes... especially against the top players... but im positive it will come... maybe shes a bit like alicia... you know a "late bloomer"

I've thought this for the last few months that maybe Sam is going to be like Alicia. I hate comparing players because they are all so different but I really think that Sam has ALL the criteria she needs to be winning those big games, it just needs to all sync together. Once it does then look out.

When Al's game all synced together she went on a 41 of 48 matches winning streak. I've believed for a while that the same thing is going to happen to Sam and the other players won't know what the hell hit them!

It's just SO damn frustrating watching her singles games in the meantime... If only we had a fast-forward button!

Apr 11th, 2007, 01:07 PM
lols that be kool, but its good to c how sammys game progress =)

Apr 11th, 2007, 01:44 PM
i'm tired of sammy performing like this, however it will take some time for her to make a big breakthrough i reckon. she has the game & its just a matter of having the belief to beat the top players. c'mon sammy, you can do it!

Apr 11th, 2007, 11:06 PM
She won't make any such breakthrough on clay - that's for sure. I think too many of the Aussies have a 'head thing' when it comes to playing on clay.

If Sammy is to cause a massive upset, it will come on the English grasscourts. She is capable of knocking around many of the top players, especially on grass. As long as she is able to improve her ranking this year i am happy.

Apr 13th, 2007, 12:15 AM
I had REALLY high hopes for Sammy here...

Apr 13th, 2007, 03:04 AM
SHIT CANNOT BELIEVE THEY LOST THE DOUBLES... if they lose their number 1 position i will not be happpppy! AAAAAGH!

Apr 13th, 2007, 10:08 AM
I think they will lose the #1 ranking now. Samopedia, am I right? I'm pretty sure they had to earn points to hold it at this tournament.

Have to say I was pretty shocked as well to see the score this arvo.

Sammy 4 eva!!!
Apr 13th, 2007, 10:15 AM
Ohh No!!!

Apr 13th, 2007, 11:42 AM
ahah, yeah i believe if cara makes final they wil be number 1 team, but i got no idea rankings confuss me lols.

Apr 13th, 2007, 11:46 AM
this is disappointing news to hear. fingers crossed on cara not making the final, which is doubtful i would say.

Apr 13th, 2007, 11:48 AM
Be interesting to see whether Sammy & Lisa can defend their FO title cause if they don't, it will be a struggle for them to hold onto No.1.

Apr 14th, 2007, 12:24 PM
Yeah, it would be such a shame to see them fall
