I hope she can do well!!! She has Fran up first then possibly Mauresmo!!! She will most likely play on tuesday which is my birthday so hopefully that will be a good luck charm!!!

C'mon Sammy give Sammy 4 eva a great birthday present!!! :D

By the way Sam only DROPPED 1 place in the rankings, she's now 29.
But Santangelo and Medina Garrigues are really close to Sammy so she
need's some wins and hopefully 1st round losses to Mara and Anabel (no offence!!). :)

:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Sams done good. She beat schiavone in straight sets, even with the 'emergency toilet break' schiavone took, what a load of crap that was! I managed to catch the final set on eurosport. The clay didnt look as slidy as at the french open, didnt seem like there was a mass of clay dust on the surface, unsure why.
Are the players now allowed to aimlessly chat or get coached by anyone? I noticed Adam chatting to Sam on a break, but then schiavone seemed to wonder off mid point and chat with someone on the side lines, like a photographer, WEIRD!
Anyways good result, i wish sam the best of luck against mauresmo and happy birthday Sammy 4 eva :bdaycake: :aparty:

This is a great result for Sam. Should give her lots of confidence going into the match against Amelie. Good luck Sammy!

Harvs
May 15th, 2007, 09:54 PM
What a great win... Schiavone has had some great wins in Rome (Anyone remember the straight-set upset of Serena!?!)
Mauresmo lost to Vakulenko last week so she is obviously beatable after not playing much lately.... I hope Sammy just goes out there and does her best, taking at least a set off would be another great confidence boost for the French!

Sammy 4 eva!!!
May 15th, 2007, 09:58 PM
Yer nice work for Sam!! I have a feeling that she might beat Mauresmo.

Ben.
May 15th, 2007, 09:59 PM
nice win there from sam :yeah: really handled schiavone pretty well in front of a pro Italian crowd. she's got nothing to lose against amelie so she should go out there & swing freely :D

Daniel.

Their head to head isn't to good for Sam.
6/2 6/3
6/2 6/0
6/0 6/0
6/4 6/2
7/6 6/3
Mauresmo won all.

I remember Sam saying in an interview that Mauresmo is the player she likes playing the least.

I hope she can surprise us!

with hingis out of the french, stosur is almost certain to be seeded from 25th-28th... this is good as she will be in either jankovic, vaidisova, ivanovic or safinas section of the draw (by this weeks rankings)... which is better than henin, sharapova, kuznetsova or mauresmo!

hola, doing a quick reply from mobile phone, asi know i will get no breaks at work and will finish around midnight, 15 hr shifts are not fun, i may quit, i just cant be arsed not having anytime off to socialise, eat or sleep. Its crap!
Anyways erm i put my dvd recorder on this morning from 12-7 so if they do show the sam/mauresmo match in, i should in theory record it. Altho eurosport are quite good, they do have tendency to switch to court 1 mid match and then forget to return etc, but we'll see. Back to sodding work now :sad: *becks* sleep deprived. Its pissing it down here in uk :rain:
P.s Sam did not seem to slide into the points that much against schiavone, hope she works on that a little and her serve was rock solid

Ben.
May 16th, 2007, 11:54 AM
so if sam beats amelie tonite, i'am sure she will secure a Top 32 seeding at the FO.

*timtams*
May 16th, 2007, 03:07 PM
sammy is doing well, but what i predicted with bloody eurosport has happened. i taped eurosport 1, but they switched it to eurosport2, just to be irritating twats. Grrr i have like 40 mins break, i might have to go brick a crow outside my window to make it nice and quiet. :fiery: Anyways sammy is doing well, her serves are spot on and mauresmo not getting a rhythm on them at all. no breaks as yet. sammy made a few errors could have gone 4-2 up i think and now instead its on serve 5-4 (to sam).no wait, its 5-5

*timtams*
May 16th, 2007, 03:10 PM
yes! go sammy, great smash, awesome serve, great volleys 6-5, she's making mauresmo look average! this is ace :bounce:

May 16th, 2007, 03:12 PM

i dont get where the sound has gone on the court, normally on tv, you can hear the ball getting smacked around, its almost like its been muted, but then again the commentators are quite loud, when they are talking, i not understand

*timtams*

GeeTee
May 16th, 2007, 04:42 PM
Unfortunately, a tim-tam Slam is the only kind Slam she might manage in singles - at least on clay..,,and if Mauresmo's anywhere near her in the draw :(

Their only match before was in Sam's home town at the 2005 AHC (maybe her first final?) where she had quite a few chances, but faltered. It was torture to watch the game!

almost wining in a match last week against Chakvetadze.... and now wining a close THREE hour match against Mauresmo.... i think this is a major turning point....

anyone know when the next sammy match is on. I have managed to piece together the mauresmo match, it seems i only missed 2 games, bloody eurosport i think it must be about 4 mins missing. On dvd, looks good quality from what i can see. Eurosport currently covering the demented girl vs petrova. Can i ask a question of where are the spectators? more than half the seats are empty. Is it cos they are too pricey?

Anyways good luck sammy against patty. I like patty, but sams my no.1, wonder who she will practice against for a lefties game

Beck - do u know why Petrova retired? Asking as a few of us are evilly wishing for a few last minute withdrawals from RG to help Aussie entries!

she called the trainer, she seemed to pull up after a point. Trainer came on, messed/massaged her back for a time out break, petrova kept wincing. played a few points and decided it was best to quit the italian and concentrate on getting fit for the french

so broken in first game, then she breaks at 2-1, gets broken back for 2-2, and back on serve for 2-3 i think! currently getting shown on eurosport is the jankovic bondarenko match, hopefully they may change

nice tournament sam... wins over schiavone (in italy) and amelie mauresmo on clay and going down in two close sets to patty schnyder is something for sam to be proud of. will sam play next week? shame she lost her doubles but at least she gets some Rest and Recovery ahead of roland garros

I would be very surprised - and disappointed - if any Australian decided to fly from Europe to Australia and then back again the week before a Grand Slam...

I think one of Lisa Raymond's recent blogs said even flying back to the US from Europe between tournaments is tough.

If I was a player with my girlfriend in Rome and had a commitment in Paris a week away, I would be having a nice relaxing mini holiday, say on the South of France, while I was practising and preparing as a pro should.

sorry... who is sams girlfriend? is it one of the players? sam is looking so confident and ready to play out there from the (little) that ive seen since fed cup. fingers crossed she can at least live up to her seeding (third round) at roland garros
