I think we need a new thread on this. That 'Sam on Clay' thread has been going on forever! :)

Sam's clay season so far:
Charleston W
Stuttgart F (L to Henin)
Madrid QF (L to Venus)

Let's pray for a good RG draw!

Alright so potentially tricky third round match against Zheng Jie and extremely hard fourth round match against most probably Masha or Justine. Interesting.

Huntress55

Good first two rounds, 3rd round could be Jie but I think she could win that so I think she should get to the 4th round without too much trouble. But after that its going to get pretty tough!:lol: Justine or Masha, Serena....

At least Stosur has a fairly comfortable first week, Henin is the worst possible 4th round opponent you can get but if she is going to this far then she'll have to step it up.

It's a terrible draw for all the Aussies in Paris. It's really a shame for Sam though- if she had been in any of the other quarters, a QF appearance would have been a certainty.

May 21st, 2010, 04:19 PM
heyyyy...I like the draw :) If she gets to 4th round vs Masha, she will win no doubt :yeah: and if she has to play vs JuJu, I reckon she has a good chance too. After her defeat against her a few weeks ago, she mentioned she could have played better and do things different, so she definetly has a game plan now against her. Also seeing Henin being so vulnerable at Madrid will give her hope too. Serena on the other hand....scares me a bit more :unsure:

Drine
May 21st, 2010, 04:22 PM
Sam can reach the 4th round, no doubt about it ;)
But again, let's take it one match at a time, first rounds are always full of surprises and playing a qualifier is always tricky and never easy :unsure:
Let's wait and see whom she's playing first :p

Sam's first round opponent is...........Simona Halep ;)
I mentioned in a previous post that we should take it one match at a time. Well, this first match will not be that easy, this young player reached the final in Fès recently and lost to Safarova. She also reached the QF in Marbella losing to Pennetta.
Soooo, she can play on clay :unsure:

Sam should obviously be able to win this match BUT she'll have to be careful and fully concentrated :)

tennisforadults
May 22nd, 2010, 02:14 AM
Tough draw but could be worse.

Simona Halep will be a good 1st round opponent - should give Sam a test.

2nd round and 3rd round should be fine (not worried about Zheng). 4th round is THE TEST. I think it's much more likely Sam will face Henin rather than Sharapova.

Damn Caroline Wozniacki's quarter is soooo easy! (I don't buy the Caro-hate but she always gets such good draws!) Maybe Dulgheru will be the surprise quarterfinalist.

It was a good effort from Samt to get from 2-4 to 7-5, didn't flich at all. Just kept going with her game plan and it worked out in the end. :)

Hopefully the weather stays clear for the rest of the tournament, so she can keep going with the aggression. Next round will be a nice test, good match to get some consistency.
