Alright alright, here we go again. I swear this is the only time I post.

Eastbourne first with its giant killer seagulls, seriously they are huge, image walking along the seafront, then getting dive bombed and crapped on by a pterodactyl...well that sums up eastbourne, along with the random weather changes....last year there was a snow flurry, yes SNOW, ffs its JUNE!

I might post some photos of seagulls crapping on people matches, depends on shit internet connection :fiery:


Then its onto my 4th favourite grand slam...WIMBLEDON. OMG my 9th consectuive slam, holy crap, how have I managed it?????? These reports will be slightly rare and obv a swear fest. Photos will be of umbrellas and i do have the right to moan about the weather.
It will :rain:
play will get suspended, no pigeons this year, as I hear there is a wimbledon sniper, will have to hope their aim is ok and don't accidentally cap someone in the ass :lol:

Sam will play Sabine Lisicki in Eastbourne R1.

Keadz
Jun 13th, 2009, 01:30 PM
I like her draw. She has to get past Sabine first though who is a pretty dangerous player on any given day. Then Sammy has Caro in the second round who she beat on the grass this time last year. Then Sam can test herself against Zvonareva or Mauresmo (most likely).

Good luck Sammy :)

Also have fun at Wimbledon Becks :) Though it is probably colder here in Melbourne (as it should be), so I don't feel too sorry for you.:p

Isn't it ironic *starts singing* that Sam's most likely opponants she beat this time last year???
Rd 1 - Lisicki (Def Birmingham 2008 6/3 6/4)
Rd 2 - Wozniacki (Def Eastbourne 2008 7/6 6/4)
QF - (MOST LIKELY) Mauresmo (Def Eastbourne 1/2)

Hoping for a repeat of last year... so to speak!!!!

Not trying to jinx her or anthying but does anybody feel that sam will be fav for her next round. If she is on her game like she was 2day i just don't think that Wozniacki (is that the wright one) can trouble her on a faster surface.

Sam has Bethanie Mattek first round :sad:

Beth is a great grass court player, expecting an upset here.

Mattek is a good grass court player but she is on a losing streak, i'd be very disappointed if she got upset.

Sam has a possible round 2 with Jelena :eek:

(18) Stosur vs. Mattek-Sands
(Q) Malek vs. Dokic
Errani vs. Dubois
Hradecka vs. (13) Ivanovic

Hopefully an Aussie makes the third round :p

Holy crap, if Sam and Jelena win their matches, they play each other...

This is beyond horrible. Dokic in the second round :o. I hope she wins because another second round loss at Wimbledon would be hard to swallow. She had to be in Venus' section as well :(

It would be nice to see her play Venus though.

Best of luck Sammy.

Don't forget Ivanovic in the 3rd.

Meh, you win some you lose some, look at the draw she had at RG for example.

Tough draw.. but good luck to Sam!
If she gets to the third, Ivanovic is definitely beatable these days.

Go Sammy! :hug:

Wimbledon Round 1: (18)Sam Stosur vs Bethanie Mattek-Sands

I wouldn't underestimate Bethanie Mattek-Sands, especially at Wimbledon (well on grass). Yes she is on a 5 match losing streak and yes, Sam is coming off some of her best tennis in recent times (excluding the first and last set against Wozniacki), but Sands did make the 4rd last year at this very tournament (Def Bartoli and losing to Serena 3 & 3)...
Is Sam is on like she was against Lisicki last week, there will really be no competition with Sam winning something like 2 & 1, but if she plays like she did against Wozniacki there couls be an upset on the cards...

PREDICTION: Sam - 6/2 6/1

Huntress55
Jun 21st, 2009, 10:24 AM
Bit of a tough draw, sucks that she might face Jelena in the 2nd, oh well hopefully that'll mean an aussie in the 3rd :)
Good luck at Wimby Sam!
