Alright so our family is getting a bit big right now and trying to remember names is hard for all of us short-term memory people. This will make things a bit easier, yes? I wasn't sure if you guys were serious about wanting a thread but screw it, might as well make it anyway :p.

My name is Diana and I'm slightly obsessed with Sam and with sports in general.

Just a little note:

Drine is our mistress, tenniscrazy84 is our bartender, Wedgie619 is our awesome mathematician, vodka's our official drink and Mindy the bunny is our mascot. Oh and if anyone's on facebook, there's the Smash'em Sam (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=131900393493177&ref=ts) group that you might want to join. Anything else? :lol:

Alright, I'll add them as they introduce themselves. I'm bound to forget someone so it's probably better than way :p. Didn't realise you guys made another facebook group though. The last page got closed down, didn't it?

Great job Diana :yeah: I was wondering who would start the thread :p

OK, no problem to remember my name here :lol: Drine is my real nickname, comes from my first name Sandrine (typical french name that I don't like.....anyway :o).

I'm also obsessed with Sam.....wow, what a scoop :rolleyes: Uhhhh........what else, love sports in general too, I'm also part of the "hi, my name is ....and I'm an alcoholic" group.

Thanks Diana btw for the "mistress" thing, it'll follow me the rest of my life now :lol: What a reputation :p

Last but not least, I hate when it gets messy in the threads. Believe me you'll get off topic one day or another. I'll be there :devil:
If you don't get what I mean, don't worry, you'll know it sooner or later :devil:

Good idea for everyone to get to know each other a little better.

I'm Matt, from Melbourne, been posting on and off here for ages, love my sports especially my tennis and of course obsessed with Sam like everyone else here. Lleyton is my favourite male player.

Hi guys, my name is Jake and im from the Manning Valley in NSW, Australia.
Sam has been one of my Fave's since i watched her win her first round at the 2004 Australian Open as a WC. She then got cleaned up in the 2nd round by Kapros, oh what different paths their careers have taken.

this sounds like an AA meeting. mmmmmm. odd.

our love for alcohol and other mood altering drugs is what we all have in common here. the fact that this is a tennis board has nothing to do with it.

the official board drink is vodka but I'm more of a sangria girl. it's not as strong but I can sprinkle it with xanax or something. it's yummers :hearts:

Hello Smash'em Family, my name's Jen and I'm from the US. Been a fan of Sam for years. She has always been a player that has made me want to see her achieve her goals, and improve, and become stronger. She is really the consummate player to me, both on the court and especially off the court. Her beating Serena at the FO was one of the greatest days ever. I've been trolling these message boards for awhile and just recently signed up right after Sam's loss because I was so crushed and felt I needed a comforting outlet, although I ended up never posting anything. I got over it quickly and now, I just can't wait for what is next for Sam. :D

A little bit more about me... I am a 5 year old lop eared rabbit and was adopted by my 2 mummies (sometimes called 'apes') 2 years ago. One mummy you will be already familiar with (the crazy McB) and my other mummy is called Jo. My 2 mummies have been together for 7 years and I am their little baby :rolleyes: Mummy McB loves tennis and Mummy Jo has rediscovered her love for tennis just recently thanks to Sam :hearts: I can be found hanging out on my Facebook account and in the Smash'em Sam Family Facebook group.

I know what you mean Matt. I went into GM straight after just to see what they were saying, but I didnt read any articles or newspapers, and when it came on the news I switched it over straight away. :sad:
Eh, I guess thats what being a supporter is about, you're there in the happy and sad times.

Yeah tell me about it. Right when Sam lost I turned off the match, kicked my bed:fiery:, then went out drinking with my friends so I could forget about the match. I guess I'm a really sore loser, even when I'm not playing :angel:

same here. I've been a casual fan since last summer... and then the FO happened. that was great at first :sobbing:

now I'm thinking about getting a eurosport player (http://videos.eurosport.com/eurosport-player/teaser.shtml) account so I don't miss any of her matches.

I just wanted to hid under my bed and scream after the match, but i didn't fit (im not THAT fat, there just wasn't ROOM enough :tape: :devil:) and i was too sad and tired even to scream.
But it went over soon and it's not long for Wimbledon now. :bounce:

ello,

I became a fan of Sam's while watching the RG match she played against Henin. I've been a fan of Henin's for a bit. Not a raging rabid fan or anything, just liked and supported her. During that match, I found myself rooting for Same instead, now I think I'm a hardcore fan. Was on a high watching her sail through to the finals and was really down when she lost to Fran...

During these past few days. I've trawled through all the threads relating to her including that one thread that goes all the way back to 2004.

I hope that she'll keep up her success and I'm actually going to subscribe to another cable tv provider just so that I can watch Wimby and the US open. Just for her!

So hi everyone!

Hey everyone! Well I've been on and off here for a while...I'm Hannah, and I'm a Sam-a-holic.

:lol:

I've always followed Sam, but I suppose I really became a fan about last year, during RG. At the end of last year, there was a little bit of rearranging of my favourites, and I think I can say Sam is now very, very high, if not the highest! And I'm hoping to see her in 11 or 12 days time at Wimbledon! (Again! I've seen her before, but wasn't as big a fan then as I am now!)

Hi everyone :wavey:.

This is a my first post here and I think it's the perfect place. I'm Melanie from Germany and the last FO has finally done it for me, I became a "groupie". I've followed her way more and more regularly since FO 09 and this year i thougt ok, now you're really going nuts, as I sat at work in front of my pc and followed the match against serena just by the scoreboard without tv screen because the stream broke down more than once. And my colleagues just shook their heads while I nearly broke my fingers or jumped up and down (and I think it's a good thing that they didn't take any pictures). At this point I started some research and found you. And then I was relieved that there are many more and nope, I'm not the only one who ist a little bit crazy and kind of obsessed :bounce:.

OK Sorry never introduced myself properly.

I'm Yuan, living in Melbourne for the past 7 years. I'm not Aussie, but Australia is really a 2nd home. I love everything here. And I'm male, 26, a graphic designer/photographer by trade.

First noticed Sam in 2006, before her illness. She was ranked around 30-50 I think. Aside from Sam, I also like Casey Dellacqua a lot, and Alica Molik of course. Casey's such a sweet, down2earth Aussie girl - could be my neighbour.

Male players I really like Marcos Baghdatis and Andy Murray. Not a huge fan of Lleyton... I admire his competitiveness and 'never-say-die' attitude but he's a bit hard to love. :lol:

I should have known this before, right after the first time when i heard some weird voices coming from the hall and caught her and her own damn sister doing something very, very suspicious together.. :tape:
Back then i thought it was gonna be just a phase and she'd switch to boys (and leave her sister alone, which luckily happened) after they'd got sterilized but no.. Being just gay would be cool but now i probably should be more worried of her attraction toward a human being. :unsure: :p But atleast she has a good taste. :p

To be honest, one of them could probably learn to play football. After all she can already fetch, sit, give a kiss when asked etc.. She's more clever than the other 3 altogether. :rolleyes:

I almost wish i had your friends, it's hard to play anything with (almost) any of my girl friends when they think the ball is the enemy, not the other player(s). :devil:

Well, my name is Bertrand (aka: bertisonline).
And now i can tell you the truth: I am a Sam's fan. :);
I really appreciate her attitude in life in general, and the combination of grace and power in tennis. Such an inspiration.
And I found this forum great with the dedication and the passion of its members: you.
If I can be a member of The Official Smash 'em Family, in a form or another, I would try my best.
So now you know.

Aug 23rd, 2010, 03:04 AM
Ok i have more time now so I can introduce myself better...

I am a huge Sam fan!!! have been since Hopman cup 2007... yet have never seen one of her matches live (am hoping to this year at Sydney... was so pissed that last year she played on Day 2!!!)
Apart from Sam I follow all the other Aussies and Some of our juniors... Of other ntionalities, I follow Sveta, Clijsters, Petrova, Cirstea, and alot more that I get to know from Hopman (I just love that they get personality peices from the players, Not just tennis)... From ATP i follow Nadal, Murray, Del Potro, Simon to name a few...

As you now know, I am a sports nut... My friends hate it coz thay really get to hang out during the Summer or they have to brib me to go out (Not when Sam is playing though)... Yeah, anything sport im interested in, however the ones i follow closest would be NRL and tennis...

I dont know if you would have picked up but i have this little OCD thing that I do with exlamation marks, question marks and dots... (i do them in 3's)... see!!! :lol:

Oh, my name is Peter, and I :hearts: maths... I am planing to becoem a high school maths teacher but right now I work at Woolies (which is why I couldn't say on for long last night, My monday's start at 4!!!). I am facinated by stats and figure and all things numbers, I dont know why but I just can remember things with numbers better...

In regard to tennis (and most sports) i am very patriotic... I love all things and (most) sporting players that are Aussie!!!

I play tennis with my brother (recreationally - we are looking to enter some local tournaments in dubs) and I would say that I play a lot like Sam... heavy forehand (not as heavy), good kick serve, my back hand is not a bad as Sams :lol: in regard to my forehand, but its not good... i can volley, but usually come in off the wrong shot... so basically im a less fit, 20 year old male version of Sam!!!

I think thats it, if there is anything else that you would like to know then... just ask!!!

oh and Huntress... I know, i was so happy that the sharkies cant get the spoon, but I just wish that we had a few more attacking options Ie Gardner has been a great find!!!

Haha thanks for that Drine. I was gonna work on that when I wasn't so tired and hadn't hadanything to drink. Cos otherwise I sound like a loon. But since you forced my hand :P

Hi everyone my name is Sian!! Some of you I might know others I don't. For those I do know I'm sorry ;) and for those I don't you have been warned lol.
Okay so um I have been a tennis fan as long as I can remember and a Fan of Sam's since her days as a junior. I remember seeing her play as a youngster a few hours from where I live and have adored her ever since. I am also a big Molik fan along with Henin, Clijsters and Seles ( even though she has retired lol). I met Sam and Alicia a few years ago when they played a tournament here and got to have lunch with them which was the highlight of my life hehe.

On a non tennis note I worked in a winery for 5 years until this April just gone. And am now looking for a job wherever I can find one. I am told I'm kinda crazy but it's all in good fun. I used to play basketball and tennis and also was a competitive swimmer but had to stop because of injury. I'm 22 and not your typical into the feelings and talking about how you feel Pisces. I live in south Australia in a little hole of a place. Which I soon hope to move away from lol.

I think that's about it. I've probably bored you all to death by now thanks to my current rum flavored alcoholic drink. Yeah well okay thanks for listening :P

Haha thanks for that Drine. I was gonna work on that when I wasn't so tired and hadn't hadanything to drink. Cos otherwise I sound like a loon. But since you forced my hand :P

Hi everyone my name is Sian!! Some of you I might know others I don't. For those I do know I'm sorry ;) and for those I don't you have been warned lol.
Okay so um I have been a tennis fan as long as I can remember and a Fan of Sam's since her days as a junior. I remember seeing her play as a youngster a few hours from where I live and have adored her ever since. I am also a big Molik fan along with Henin, Clijsters and Seles ( even though she has retired lol). I met Sam and Alicia a few years ago when they played a tournament here and got to have lunch with them which was the highlight of my life hehe.

On a non tennis note I worked in a winery for 5 years until this April just gone. And am now looking for a job wherever I can find one. I am told I'm kinda crazy but it's all in good fun. I used to play basketball and tennis and also was a competitive swimmer but had to stop because of injury. I'm 22 and not your typical into the feelings and talking about how you feel Pisces. I live in south Australia in a little hole of a place. Which I soon hope to move away from lol.

I think that's about it. I've probably bored you all to death by now thanks to my current rum flavored alcoholic drink. Yeah well okay thanks for listening :P

Sian :hatoff:. Nice to meet another not-talking-about-your-feelings Pisces ;)

Hi everyone,

Just want to say this is my first post in the tennis forum - have been lurking here for the past few months. I used to follow tennis a good bit (well many moons ago) when Steffi was still playing. After her retirement, never really found someone "special" to follow although I used to really admire Patty Schnyder's game but tennis coverage in Malaysia was really bad so I hardly got to watch WTA matches. Fast forward a couple of years, I moved to Ireland from Malaysia for work and started watching tennis intermittently again. I remember watching the Wimbledon ladies doubles final in 2009 - I knew of Rennae because she was a good friend of Steffi but I have not seen or heard of Sam prior to that match. Anyway google did the trick and that was the first time I have seen Sam play. I was quite disappointed they lost to the Williams sisters but it was a good match especially "THAT" point! Then this year, I finally made it to Wimbledon (queued and got into the grounds). I didn't get to watch Sam play but as I was walking around the grounds, she suddenly walked pass me and my friend - I remember getting really excited and told my friend - that's Sam Stosur - she used to be no. 1 in doubles! She didn't look too happy that day (it was just after her mixed doubles loss) so I didn't ask for an autograph. Anyways, the next few months I was busy with work etc and didn't really pay attention to tennis and then one day I saw on my twitter feed that Sam had beaten Serena in the US Open finals! I was like wow, that's really an upset - they showed a replay of the match in the same afternoon - I watched in awe as Sam ran around her forehand time and time again to produce winner after winner especially off Serena's serve. Her off forehand reminded me of Steffi's trade mark shot. I remember thinking, hmmmm maybe I have a new player to start following now (also loved the fact that Steffi was Sam's idol growing up :))! I began googling to find out more about Sam's run to the US open title and also frequented you tube to watch some of her previous singles matches. Google also led me to this great forum on all things Sam - you guys really are a wealth of information and a really passionate group! I look forward to joining you guys in cheering for Sam in 2012! I am sure it will be one hell of a roller coaster! (hope I am wrong though!) Sorry for rambling on and on - hope I didn't bore you guys! Go Sammy go! :)

Welcome welcome! :)

Beware of General Messages - it can get quite nasty in there. But Sam's forum is a great place to hang out.

You should definitely catch some of Sam's matches from French Open 2010. She beat Justine Henin, Serena Williams and Jelena Jankovic in consecutive matches to reach the final. Also don't miss Charleston 2010 final against Vera Zvonareva - Sam played lights out tennis and made Vera look like an amateur.

Hiya - yup managed watch highlights some of Sam's matches from the French Open 2010 - very good run to the final, pity about the final (which I still cant bear to watch!). Also saw highlights of the Charleston 2010 final - she was so good that day - Vera's racquet smash was hilarious :)

Hi and welcome again Anne! I must admit I had no idea what you were talking about when you said you posted something on the intro thread, and was too embarrassed to ask a newbie where it was :o :lol:. Nice to read about how you came to be a fan of Sam's. It's a little bit similar to my experience in that I was also looking around for a long time for someone I could really admire in the women's game. I used to follow mainly men's tennis, was a big fan of Pat Rafter, Andre Agassi and more recently Roger Federer, but gradually I became more interested in women's tennis. There was something about the women's game that I was missing in the ATP tour, don't ask me what it was, I still can't really put my finger on it. The problem was that for a long time there were no female players I could really get behind. I had heard of Sam for a few years, but had never seen her play and thought she was basically a doubles player, so never really bothered to check her out. I was only after she got to the RG SF in '09 that I saw that she was a really good singles player, although even as recently as that she was still very rough around the edges. I had never seen a woman play tennis like that (although for sure there are some big similarities with Steffi's game), and pretty soon I was hooked. Even though being her fan is a real roller coaster ride at times, the more I saw of her, not just her tennis but her whole personality and the way she carries herself on and off court, the more fascinated I became. She really is one of a kind.

Well, we all have our own personal Sammy epiphanies, don't we? I'm a late bloomer in that respect: I first saw her play at RG 2010-1R against Simona Halep. I had developed quite a bit of cynicism towards the sport and stopped watching it for a number of years, with RG 2010 being a random attempt to renew my interest. Anyway, I know I was trying to pick a 1R match to watch and when I found Sam vs. Simona, I recall thinking, "Who the fuck is this woman? Holy shit!" I was mesmerised. I could go on about what I saw but you all know perfectly well what I saw. (Before anyone starts, I want to make it clear that my whole lusty objectification business started much later. :lol:)

Although that RG 2010 didn't end well (:sad: :fiery:), Sam's run was the single most exciting sporting event I've ever experienced (as a spectator). And Sam is the single reason I got back into WTA tennis (and ATP for that matter).

My :hatoff: to you. Clearly you are better able to be honest with yourself on the 'Sammy, hot or not' matter than I am. The truth is that I did find her kind of cute right off the bat, but she was quite far removed from my usual type. So, I didn't think much of my initial 'wouldn't kick her outta bed for eating crackers' thoughts. But boy, she grew on me such that about one year after RG'10, I had developed a full-fledged celebrity crush on her - this from a grown woman* who does not typically have celebrity crushes! Such is the allure of the incredible Sammy!



* Yep, I'm a big lesbo (or rather, a petite lesbo :lol:) who happens to fancy the pants off Sam. I'm just putting that out there - you all seem like a lovely lot, and I'm sure I have nothing to worry about by telling you this. Somehow, I'm guessing I'm not the only one here...:) I assure you, however, I am in no way asking/expecting else anyone here to out themselves on TF.

If it wasn't already obvious from my references to Cher, naked Andy Murray photos and constant use of :cheer: this smilie, I am a gay male. (I am also a walking stereotype, it seems).

I suspected that you and I might be in the same club, but as I hadn’t actually noticed any of the Cher references or disrobed Andy Murray pics you speak of, I confess that I thought you were a gay woman. Oops! :help:

The funny thing is that last night I deleted a post of mine on the ‘Sammy Pics’ thread, as I feared that I might have been too flirty with you and might make you uncomfortable. You had said something about wishing you could develop shoulder muscles like Sam’s, and I responded with a warning I would start perving on you if you did! :oh:
