Miss Karlovic. :lol: Sam isn't 10 feet tall - that serve is all technique, baby. ;)

Oh man, that match was a rollercoaster but she pulled through in the end. I'm so proud of her; she has come so far this year. :hearts:

Now Sam: if you lose against Schiavone, I will kill you.

sam you lovably b$%#h, stop doing that :sobbing::p

Up until 6-0 3-1, Sammy was GOAT! Serving 9 aces or something ridiculous. 3 aces in a row to get to 3-1. A couple of second serve aces in this match as well.

Then she went into relaxed, pretty sure I have the win mode...started choking and lost the second set.

Struggled throughout the third set to hold, but did it. FINALLY! broke and served it out in style :worship:

Caro :sad, good fighting. But wasn't to be. You have more important tournaments to worry about. :)

HUGE OPPORTUNITY AGAINST FRAN. Beat her twice this year, probably equally as shit in finals.:drool:

Please Sammy, win your first title and go play Bali :)

Well Wozni, you were coming off an illness and were playing pretty badly in the first set, like real bad, but Stosur was on fire.

You could of broken to go up in the third but after that, it looked like you just collapsed. Its okay, rest up and next week's a new week. :D

On to Doha soon! :D

Sam...Miss Karlovic?? Please, she hasn't been taken to a tiebreak once all week :shrug:

Karlovic is the serve and tiebreak king. Sam's serve can let her down at times, but today it worked well for her, and she is through to final number 574783...hoping for her first win.

No disrespect intended, but this is the easiest opponent Sam will have faced in a final, and she should REALLY win it...
And I think she will :)
GOOD LUCK :rocker:

So Disrespectful

I really hope Sam wins her first title, she deserves one so much. Unfortunately, I can see her nerves getting the better of her again.

Congrats on another final... Please win it Sam you have already def. Franny twice this year!!!

Woow. and qualify for Bali!!!

It's hardly like she is unbelievably tall and serving like 50 aces in a match. She served 12 aces today which is not an unbelievable amount in 3 sets...4 aces per set...BIG DEAL!!!!!!!

Can we please stop with these disrespectful thread titles?:rolleyes:I think, lagely, no. However, ridiculing the thread starter remains an option.

'Miss Karlovic' is an obscure, but actually somewhat creative, reference.
'Pushnacki' is evidence of a sub-standard intellect with little, if any, appreciation of the sport.

Of course, my favorite forum nickname for a player was 'Wild Thing'.

Well, there you said it yourself, it IS rare. Petrova is regarded as having one of the best serves on tour.

Someone PLEASE change the thread title! It is OSAKA SF, STOSUR AND WOZNIACKI.

Anyway, great performance Sam, didn't know you could pull this off! :worship:

Well if Stosur is Karlovic, then what must Petrova be? :eek: And then there's Kanepi with 24 in one match in 2008 :lol:

I'm just saying it is stupid to compare Stosur with Karlovic...she is not ridiculously tall, she doesn't own the serve records and her serve is not her one big weapon, as she doesn't completely rely on it to win matches.

I actually totally agree with you about comparing Stosur to Karlovic - it is stupid and incorrect. Karlovic depends only on his godsmackingly good serve to get him to a tiebreak and then a couple of well-timed volleys to snare the set. Stosur has a great serve, but it doesn't produce as many aces on a regular basis, and she is actually much more comfortable around the baseline. She's got one thing Karlovic doesn't - powerful top-spin forehands.

I was simply pointing out 12 aces is an outstanding stat in a womens' game. And to diminish it by comparing to Petrova is not quite fair.

PLEASE don't waste this title opportunity, Sam.
