Sorry to be rude, but will you shut up. Sam doesnt need fans like this, you can go support Caro now :p :wavey:

I'm so sad and disappointed for Sam, definitely not her best match today but what a match from Franny :eek:

Hey don't be surprised if you see this extremely long post on Sam's website. The chances of her reading it is very slim but...it's better than nothing.

I cried. In fact, I'm still rather teary...To be honest I thought there was too much hype about Sammy, everyone was saying it was a done deal...It did make me fairly nervous..

But Congrats to Fran, she deserved it today. Sammy played the tournament of her life, and should be proud. :)

Fran went today as underdog and made the best of it like Sam did in her last 3 matches. All the pressure from her country (even the prime minister called her...:)), her family being there suddenly, everyone taking for granted she would win...was just too much for the poor girl and today she couldn't find her game.
...she is still my hero :worship: and she could not have lost to a better person :)...and Mindy loves her too :p

People are saying that it's all about the jinx and it's like no it's not, it's just nerves, pressure and a good opponent. Fran deserves it. And lets face it, Fran's not getting younger. This might have been her only chance and she took it. Good on Fran :yeah:.

Now that I've had time to calm down, things aren't as bad as they seem after the match :lol:. Still going to avoid the GM though, it's going to be hell in there. No doubt our brave, lone gunman tennisforadults will be there to bat down some people though so thanks for that :p. Hopefully Sam's family is taking her out to dinner and really comforting her right now. She needs all the support she can get.

let's not do GM. Best policy is ignore the shit they post and avoid bringing it in here. Nobody gets to her rank by being all the things they call her. For the few things we know about Sam, I bet she wanted to win it more for people around her than for herself and she probably feels she is letting everyone down. I will never forget meeting Rafa the morning after he lost his first Wimbledon final and he was totally devastated. Didn't matter how much he achieved or how amazing it was to be finalist, he just kept his head down all the time not letting go how close the win was.

but....we have a reason to celebrate in here...because she is having the best year results ever and will continue to achieve more and more and win more and more...

and now I'm starting to look like Diana writting her essays :lol::rolleyes:

:hug: to all the true Sam fans out there - your girl was (is!) fantastic and has a lot to be proud of after this tournament. I know she'll just keep going and trying to do even better, and I'm quite sure she will, too!! She has a great game, her belief is growing by leaps and bounds, and I don't think that'll go away because she lost in the final; as she said, Fran just didn't do anything wrong today - there was no beating her. Sam's turn will come.

:worship: to them both for giving us a great match worthy of a GS final (at last!) and for showing the world what real sportsmanship (not the kind that wins phony awards) looks like. It's a joy to see two women break the mold in terms of looks, attitude, personality and athletic ability - and see their efforts rewarded with this kind of world-class success. And we get to enjoy amazing tennis as a result! :worship:

Chin up, Sam, hold your head up high and focus on the next one - it's yours to go after. You rock, girl. :kiss::hearts:

And since we shouldn't be any less gracious or sporting than Sam herself: Fran, you cast yourself in the role of fairytale princess and damn me if you didn't carry it off with style and panache! You just can't argue with fate: today was your day, and you embraced it with all of your very large heart. Forza, bella, e grazie! :kiss::kiss:

Trying to go to sleep last night and every Stosur mistakes would come flashing by in my head. Been in a shitty modd all day. The fact that it looked so certain that she was going to be able to do it and then loves to Schiavone in the final. she played a good match but in my view Sam the way she has been playing should beat Schiavone.

Well, I wouldn't call this loss a choke :o Sam didn't play as well as she did in the previous rounds and Franny played extremely well so that's it, there's no choke here :shrug:
But that's only my opinion of course :p ;)

Gallofa
Jun 6th, 2010, 09:18 PM
She didn't choke.

I am sorry but she did. She played nowhere near her ability. Francesca did well. Really well. But she shouldn't had won. She wouldn't had if Stosur had played like she can.

She was tense. Too tight and nervous. It's understandable, really. But she is by far the better player and she did not play her best tennis. That is choking to me. Maybe choking sounds bad? Maybe it's not the right word. I mean no insult. I wanted Stosur to win. I have seen her play many, many times. And she always tended to crumble under pressure. I have to say that she played the final exactly as I thought she would.

However, I had hoped. Having seen her play this week, winning in such emphatic, positive fashion against great players, I had hoped that she had moved past all that, but I guess she's still not quite there :sad:

Drine
Jun 6th, 2010, 10:06 PM
If that can cheer you up a little, Sam wasn't as devastated as Mary Pierce was for instance when she lost against Hénin.

She was indeed upset _ who wouldn't in this situation? _ but she didn't leave in tears. She is very well surrounded so it probably helped her a lot to overcome the defeat and she even seemed ready to have a little celebration with her family and friends after. There was a great spirit, a bit bitter but still a great one.

What people were saying about her today at Roland was that she was still happy for what she had accomplished during the tournament and her final wasn't so bad. You can say that Jelena completely missed her match against Sam but Sam didn't choke either. The pressure and the surprise caused by Schiavone's game just didn't help at all.

Besides I guess she was still happy for Francesca. They get along, that's sure (and have a common passion for chocolate!) so yesterday wasn't either Sam's worst day.

I was pretty sure they'd celebrate Sam's amazing fortnight.....good to finish on a pleasant note with her family and friends :)
"A common passion for chocolate".....hmmm :lick:

Here's a funny quote I found on the net about Sam losing in the final on Sunday. It probably won't comfort you guys but I found it quite good ;)

"Don't worry about the world coming to an end today, it's already tomorrow in Australia"

Hello, I'm back - just wanna say some last words on the French.

I was so upset after Sam's loss that I decided I needed a break! I had earlier posted that I was going to check in once the match finished. I didn't finish the match... at 4-4 in the 2nd set, I went to bed, completely depressed. I was hoping for a miracle when I got up in the morning, but I knew Franny was just playing too well tactically in that final. And Sam wasn't able to execute her usual winners. It didn't help her confidence that she was missing easy smashes and volleys, and generally not serving as well as she should.

There was no way I wanted to go to GM. So I thought maybe it was time to just avoid tennis altogether for a week. Didn't bother watching the men's final... Seriously I couldn't remember the last time I was so devastated by a sportsperson losing. :lol:

It was only natural for Sam to be disappointed. She came so close. I hope she would use this experience for future Grand Slam finals. I especially want to see her at the Australian final!

Anyway, hope she does well at the grass season, even though she had been saying it was her least favourite. And good on everyone here for continuing your support. I saw all the lovely messages you left at Sam's website. Funny that everyone's giving one another 'likes'.

GO SAM! She has certainly earned many new fans in the last month...
