I know this is getting WAY ahead of myself... but I can see Sam making the final here
If she beats Ivanovic she will face:
QF: Safina (who she has beat before)
SF: Radwanska, Lisicki or Cirstea (She has beaten all this year)

I know we shouldn't but Sam is playing SO much better this year...
Can she make the final???

Sam next opponent will be Zheng...
Played once before (earlier this year, when Sam was losing matches from winning positions) 3/6 7/5 7/5...
I think Sam was up in the final set and served for it???
Anyway Sam is in Career best form and I wouldn't be suprised if this is another win for Sam, Hopeing for a Jie letdown...

Sam need to be MORE aggressive

sam needs to hit the ball in first

Wedgie619
Aug 7th, 2009, 10:25 PM
Sam is down 1/4* (Down 2 breaks)

Sam is going for everything and in my oppinion she's trying too hard and missing almost everything

Keadz
Aug 7th, 2009, 10:28 PM
She is feeling rushed because Zheng is taking everything so early.

She needs to push her back and try and come into the net more.

Wedgie619
Aug 7th, 2009, 10:30 PM
What a high backhand volley.... she's definately perfected those lucky shots :lol:

What changed at the change of end... She is playing aggressive but with margin...
Sam 4/3*

Keadz
Aug 7th, 2009, 11:20 PM
She needs to keep this up.

She was playing with absolutely not game plan before at all. At least now she is trying to open up the backhand side of the court so she can hit the Forehand down the line. Using the slice more effectively and wrong footing Jie.

Still too many questionable errors.

Good job Sam, big turn around from 1-3.

Expecting maybe a little lapse in concentration, which usually happens when things have been going a little bit too easily. But I'm confident she can win this match now, extremely different to what I was thinking at the start of this match.

That was powerful way to finish off the match. Good fighting there Sam, finally stopped hitting too many errors and started playing smarter tennis. And i don't think she was thinking of Dubai when serving that one out.

Now now, the Sam we are seeing now is a little different from the one even at the start of this year.
She'll break through eventually. Have faith ;)
So glad that she is finding some margin for error in her game when things go off. I've never thought that she's a full-on choker. Always thought that its her point construction, forehand and patience have been her issues. The amount of wins she's had over the last couple of months proves that as her game has evolved her confidence has followed.

Does anyone know when the US Open Seeds are established... Im hopinghoping it is after the Toronto points are added to the ranking coz If Sam preforms according to her seed (there) and Cibulkova doesnt in Cinci and doesnt play Toronto Sam has a chance at jumping her and moving int the Top 16... anyone know when the seeds are established???

Svetlana Kuznetsova (6) vs BYE

Very tough draw with Kuznetsova and Pennetta in the 2nd and 3rd round.
Good luck to Sam! :hug: She can do well.

I was thinking, Pennetta might withdraw from Toronto if she makes it to the finals in Cincinnati. Will Sam be seeded 16th in case that happens?

Going to be hard for me with Sveta and Sam facing each other in the 2nd round!

But if 3rd round comes then it could be the perfect chance to have a little revenge on Pennetta ;)

Pennetta must be getting tired by now she is going to wear herself out for the US Open :lol:

Sam will play Heidi el Tabakh (:lol:) today. The match is scheduled second on Grandstand, the first match starts at 11.00 am. So Sam's match will probably start around 12.30 pm, which is 18.30 CET and 2.30 am NSW time if I'm right.

Go Sammy! Kick some ass in Toronto! :banana:

Phew, glad Sam won in the end :yeah: probably should of been easier than that considering she had a 5-1 lead in the 2nd set. But she won so I'm happy :)

GL against Sveta, like you two who posted before me its against two of my faves :sad: but at least one is through to the 3r.

Does anyone know what Sam's chances are on winning the US Open Series?

She is on 70 points and Jankovic is on 115 so she would have to do one round better then jankovic to overtake her... she probably has a 50/50 chance, as Jankovic is playing Clijsters next round...

I think all others equal or above her in the series are out of Toronto...

HybridTheory
Aug 20th, 2009, 12:25 AM
