then I feel that she will win. In the last few yeasr Sam has played extremely well and won against players who she has lost to previously. Its like she works out how to counter a player once she has lost to them. Not that its the best strategy but it seems to be working for her :confused:
Some notable examples....
Loses to Serena in Sydney 09 and then beats her in Stanford 09
Loses to Wozniacki in the PV and Eastbourne 09 and then beats her in Japan 09
Loses to Dementieva in AO 09 and then beats her in the FO 09
Loses to Ivanovic at Wimbledon 09 and then beats her in LA 09
Loses to Kuznetsova at FO 09 and then beats her in Toronto 09
Loses to Jankovic in Indian Wells 10 and then beats her in Miami 10
Loses to Bartoli in a US leadup in 09 and then beats her in Stuttgart 10
Loses to MJ Martinez-Sanchez in Bali 09 and then beats her in Fed Cup and two other times in 2010


Maybe a coincidence, and maybe because Sam has only in the last 18 months stepped up her game again then these stats look this way. But, Ive always thought that Sam has always played better against players she is familiar with and maybe gets a bit angry and is after revenge. So look out Henin.... and for that matter Sharapova!

loving the theory :lol: JuJu seems really firm on the clay and Maria a bit less firm :p I would prefer her facing Maria but I bet she can't wait to get back to Justin after the Porsche finale :armed:

Didn't Sam lose to Maria 6-0 6-1 the last time they played in Tokyo? I bet Sam wants revenge too! :devil:
