A pretty amazing result from Misa in a negative way.
It's already May and she lost all her matches this year.

Great comeback, Sam! Didn't expect it to be so easy.

I feel for Misa. I honestly think she needs to assess her options and take a break because it's defnitely not working for her.

Well Done Sam, top result, good to get a WTA win this early in her comeback, no matter who it's against. we'll see how she matches up with venus

Great work Sammy!! Convincing win which is great to see! Now against Venus who hasn't played for a while so Sam as a chance is this match, hopefully she can go well, Good Luck Sammy :yeah:

Great work on your WTA comeback Sammy :) Great to get the confidence up even though Misa is slumping terribly.

Now a shot at Venus :armed: She's supposedly coming back from 'injury' so just take advantage of her lack of matchplay - even though it rarely affects the superiority of either Williams sister :)

0-9 is Krajicek now :o And to lose like that on clay against Stosur who is back after a long break :unsure:

I don't give Stosur a chance against Venus.

But Misa :tape: 11th consecutive loss, and so bad stats again :help:

Yeah but if I hadn't won a match all year by this time of the year, I sure as heck would enter myself into a Tier I.

Thank god for her grass season isn't too far away.

she need to play some ITF tournaments to adjust herself.

it's not good for her to lose so many matches.

Maybe she doesn't have the money to pay all the fines she has to if she withdraws without a reason. (Injury is not a good reason because she couldn't play elsewhere then.)

Misa, look the positive side of it. If you lose one more match, you'll have a chance to repeat Jelena Jankovic's 2006 performace. It had a good ending, maybe you'll end up good as well. ;)

It looks good then. :woohoo: Maybe she'll just have to lose one more match,she'll beat Venus or Justine at Wimbledon,get into the SF of USO,then surge to the top 5! :D :sad:

Get it together Misa. :help:

And congrats Sam. :yeah:

Hope she gets the RG WC.

She won't need it. She has her protected ranking, which she is planning on using. That wild card will most likely go to Alicia.

She isnt eligible for GS SR spots ;) She has only missed 1 slam and you have to miss at least 3 GS to be able to use your SR at a GS.

She can at present only use her SR for regular WTA Tournaments :p

Hence she'll need the WC and I hope she gets it...Alicia doesn't deserve to be in the MD the way she has been playing recently :o

At least Sam's got some preparation for this tournament playing clay challengers.

Misa should probably do the same. Example of Benesova is pretty clear.

Exactly. Sammy made a smart move with playing a couple challengers before coming back to the tour events.:bounce:

It's getting comical now. If there was one player I was totally wrong about it's Misa. I think I predicted her as a top 10 player early in the beginning. I guess in the back of my mind I always knew where her limits were (you can't really do huge things when you have a return like hers), but grass and indoor surfaces made her tennis seem better than it actually is (like most of womens tennis). And I'm not just saying this now that she's losing. She's better than this though.
