sam now has a very good chance of defending her points :D next up is benesova (my fave international player :( ) and then probably maleeva, which r both very winnable matches.

That's sad. Last year I had high hope for Sprem but since wimbledon she has gone downhill. Now it seems anybody can beat her. What happened?

i wouldn't say sam is just "anyone", she has a 3-0 record against sprem now and its obvious that sam's game probably just troubles her, im sure she will do fine in the aus open :)

I don't even want to make any comment. She just keeps losing, but I'm not used to see a fave player of mine losing that often yet.

I'll wait until she can win a couple of matches at a tournament then talk.

wow- karolina really does not like playing stosur

but i'd bet this result would be the opposite if they had played on clay

let me put it in perspective. in two matches, sam won a grand total of 3 games against kostanic last year. apparently all you have to do is keep the ball in play. but, apparently, k-lina can't do that :sad:

That's sad. Last year I had high hope for Sprem but since wimbledon she has gone downhill. Now it seems anybody can beat her. What happened?Well, are her post-Wimbledon results really worse than her PRE-Wimbledon results? Last year before Wimbledon she lost to #163, #114, #112, and #93. She beat #14, #18, #20 and #23. (She also beat #2, but let's be honest and admit Kim had no business being back on the court.) Stosur is the first player outside the top fifty she's lost to since then, and there's more than a little bit of a home court advantage going on in this case.

Only two matches won since the Olympics for Sprem :scared:

And those were over Medina Garrigues and Smashnova indoors :o

Stosur is the first player outside the top fifty she's lost to since then, and there's more than a little bit of a home court advantage going on in this case.

Thing is, she had a few bad losses pre-Wimbledon in 04 (Stosur x2, Randriantefy, Casanova, Hantuchova), but every other tournament she'd do very well - go deep into the draw before losing an often tight match to a top player. Same after Wimbledon until the Olympics. Her post-Olympic slump is an extended sequence of first- and second-round exits. The rest of the Australian swing (especially the AO - Slams have historically been where she's posted her most bizarre, inexplicable losses) is pretty crucial for her - if she doesn't post a good result soon this slump could be quite hard to get out of.

Is she sucking ass or what recently? she is carrying on the same terrible form that she showed at the end of 2004. Is her mind on tennis?

The early-in-the-year Australian tournaments provide players who are fit and/or acclimatise quickly with a chance to set up a great year - it's very tough to come to Australia after the break and to have to play in the heat. If you look at the results over the years from, for example, the Canberra Women's Classic (and, before that, the Canberra International), a number of players who have done well in Canberra have gone on to do well at the Australian Open and have then over the next year or so taken huge steps up the rankings.

Thing is, she had a few bad losses pre-Wimbledon in 04 (Stosur x2, Randriantefy, Casanova, Hantuchova), but every other tournament she'd do very well - go deep into the draw before losing an often tight match to a top player.That really isn't an accurate description, allowing for different definitions of 'deep'. I have listed all her losses and wins separately here. The losses I'd call 'early' I'll put in read. (I chose NOT to call the round of 16 at a Tier II 'deep'. You may differ with me on that.)


GOLD COAST ....... R16 .. L 163
CANBERRA ......... SMI .. L _14
AUSTRALIAN OPEN .. 128 .. L _25
PARIS ............ R16 .. L _18
ANTWERP .......... SMI .. L _19
INDIAN WELLS ..... R64 .. L 114
MIAMI ............ QTR .. L _35
AMELIA ISLAND .... R16 .. L _07
CHARLESTON ....... R32 .. L 112
BERLIN ........... SMI .. L _11
ROME ............. R32 .. L _18
FRENCH OPEN ...... 128 .. L _93
EASTBOURNE ....... R16 .. L _54
WIMBLEDON ........ QTR .. L _05
SAN DIEGO ........ R32 .. L _04
MONTREAL ......... QTR .. L _03
OLYMPICS ......... R16 .. L _13
US OPEN .......... 128 .. L _40
HASSELT .......... R16 .. L _45
FILDERSTADT ...... R32 .. L _21
MOSCOW ........... R16 .. L _11
ZURICH ........... R32 .. L _11
LINZ ............. R32 .. L _44

Looks bad after the Olymics, but look at the rankings of who she's playing. SIc of those matches were against #21 or higher.

Now let's look at wins.

GOLD COAST........ R32 W 23
CANBERRA.......... R32 W 39
CANBERRA.......... R16 W 55
CANBERRA.......... QTR W 46
AUSTRALIAN OPEN .. 128 L 25
PARIS ...........Q-R32 W 94
PARIS ...........Q-R16 W 72
PARIS ...........Q-QTR W 68
PARIS ............ R32 W 41
ANTWERP .......... R32 W 20
ANTWERP .......... R16 W 48
ANTWERP .......... QTR W 56
MIAMI ............ R64 W103
MIAMI ............ R32 W 39
MIAMI ............ R16 W 14
AMELIA ISLAND .... R64 W125
AMELIA ISLAND .... R32 W 23
CHARLESTON ....... R64 W 25
BERLIN ........... R64 W 90
BERLIN ........... R32 W 40
BERLIN ........... QTR W 24
ROME ............. R64 W 47
EASTBOURNE ....... R32 W 18
WIMBLEDON ........ 128 W 72
WIMBLEDON ........ R64 W 08
WIMBLEDON ........ R32 W 35
WIMBLEDON ........ R16 W 24
SAN DIEGO ........ R64 W 68
MONTREAL ......... R64 W161
MONTREAL ......... R32 W 64
MONTREAL ......... R16 W 11
OLYMPICS ......... R64 W 37
OLYMPICS ......... R32 W151
HASSELT .......... R32 W 44
MOSCOW ........... R32 W 30

She's 5-3 for the year vs players ranked #21 or higher. Her form didn't fall off that far. She's was playing better players.

I hope Maggie will beat Stosur, she has a completely different game and is more difficult for Stosur I hope. Benesova is hard for Stosur, too.
