Yeah, watched some of it, probably needed to serve better, didn't see what happened in that 2nd set. In the first set there were 8 breaks of serve.

Good week Sam, got to like the consistancy this hardcourt swing.

Yeah I think she made around 9 double faults which does not help. The few points I saw in that match on Eurosport news she didn't play that well. But still she has had a pretty good USO series so I guess we cannot be disappointed with that.

By no means her New Haven draw is easy, but with the form she is in at the moment its hard to count Sam out. Good luck Sam :) and also in the dubs SF in toronto.

This is part of the New Haven Preview on Wta's Official site:

Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova, who was seeded seventh, has withdrawn from the event due to a right rib injury; Australia's Samantha Stosur has assumed her spot in the draw as the No.9 seed, and will compete at a new career-high ranking of No.15 after her run to the quarters at Toronto.

Sammy's New Draw???

[1/WC]Kuznetsova vs. Zheng
Qualifier vs. Kleybanova
A.Bondarenko vs. [WC]Shaughnessy
Sugiyama vs. [8]Mauresmo

[4/WC]Petrova vs. Chakvetadze
Bammer vs. Medina Garrigues
Vesnina vs. Dulko
Cornet vs. [9]Stosur

I can see a SF rematch between Sveta and Sam

Good thing Sam's in good shape, cause that's a whole lot of tennis to play right before a slam.

Sam and Rennae are leading 6/2, 3/0. It's looking very good for their first title! :)

Did Sam pull out of New Haven? The OOP has Iveta Benesova playing someone else when the draw says Sam plays her in the 1st round...

I dont think she has... Cibulkova pulled out so Sam took her place in the draw playing Cornet as the 9th seed... and Cornet isnt playing anyone on Monday

she took cibulkovas seeding place:) and will play cornet on tuesday:):)

She's on a much kinder side of the draw now.

First tourny win plz!

This is interesting: with Dementieva winning Toronto, Sam has now lost five of her last six tournaments to the eventual winner. Wimbledon was the exception.

Girls should be lining up around the block to beat Sam; it seems to be a good omen. If only she could beat herself at New Haven and then win the tournament. ;)

Wow that is interesting and pretty good from Sam! She is playing really consistent this season, despite still being called inconsistent regularly :rolleyes:
I'd like to know how many times Sam has lost to a player ranked lower than herself this year. Can anyone tell me? Cause I bet it wouldn't be often.
If Sam can keep this up, there is a big chance for her to get into the top 10 by the end of the season or the start of the next season. :)

I think she has only lost twice to players ranked lower than her this year. Safarova in Brisbane & Shvedova in Rome. I watched Sam play against Safarova in Brissy & Sam simply got outplayed, so I wouldn't consider that a horrible loss.

HybridTheory
Aug 24th, 2009, 09:35 PM
Thanks for that! And what about Chakvetadze in Madrid, or was Sam ranked higher than her? Anyway, losing only twice to a lower ranked player is pretty good. :)

She beat Cornet 6-7(8) 6-2 6-4... good thing she pulled it out

GL against vesnina tomorrow:)

That would have been a horrible match, thank god Sam pulled through :scared:

Sam BPs Won: 5/12
Alize BPs Won: 2/17

Also Sam served up 8 double faults :tape:

Yeah, same it was tortortus, Sam faced bp's pretty much every service game in that first set. I would have to say it would of been one ugly match.

Good Luck against Vesnina tonight

Just a note about the US Open Series... If Sam was to get to the semi's then she would probably be third in the series but she has to win to come second...
The only person left in this weeks draw that could over Sam (I think) is Bartoli...

Yeah I felt the same way too :lol: plus she was up like 40-0 at 4-3 1st set. But anyway we can forget that & be pleased that she is winning some of these matches when she is not at her best.

Hopefully she can beat Vesnina now to reach the qtrs.

Shame that Sam wasn't able to win. Better to get one of these bad losses out of the way I suppose before the USO.

The US Open main draw is out, it's Sam versus Sugiyama in the first round and a possible 4th round against Serena.

I reckon there should be a US Open thread? Is it ok if I open it?

Fourth round match up against Serena, mmmm exciting! But of course one match at a time! Good luck Sammy :D

I would be happy for Sam to make the fourth round, she should do that and it would be a career best performance in New York.

Hope she doesn't get destroyed by 'slamrena' and can put in a decent performance in what I think would be a night match.

Good luck Sammy :)
