OK guys, here it is, i've started it a little early as usual, but thats because im working, then straight off to eastbourne, where i'll be uploading and trying to avoid getting crapped on by the huge killer seagulls.
Then its :wavey::wavey: windy eastbourne, and killer gulls and off to wimbledon where that 6 hr bloody queue will cause me to get tourettes. (sweary reports might be frequent). From here, I will again be posting photos, mainly of umbrellas and moaning about how shite the weather is :rain:
You queue at wimbledon every year, you have this right. You live in england, you also have the right. Please feel free to add captions like last year, captions make them that much more special.
My seats for eastbourne are really pants, they are row 'z', obv i'll be seat spotting thru the change of ends and will just move, if anyone has a problem with that i'll put on my swedish accent and claim i don't understand, which seemed to work nicely at Roland Garros and USO! :angel: Who says you need tickets for the centre court matches :angel:

i wasn't expecting it either but nice to see she got one, that makes at least 4 aussies that will be playing overall in the md.

Good luck for eastbourne sam!

sam got a shit eastbourne draw last year, vaidisova, im sure she got a set or she was deffo up in that match, i remember being there. Hope for a better draw this time, please not lindsay!

*timtams*
Jun 14th, 2008, 08:26 PM
draw could be better :scared: Must start packing soon, eastbourne, then wimby, no time to get home betwenn them, im not exactly close to either, 300+ mile drive tomorrow, with no bloody ipod, as i STUPIDLY shoved it in the washing machine last night, tried in hope to switch it on today, what a shock, it did not. Thats the 2nd bloody one ive knackered now, the first one died of alcohol poisoning.

It's not that bad is it, she should be Katie OBrien for a shot at Mauresmo or Cornet...

*timtams*
Jun 16th, 2008, 06:34 PM
OMG!

Can i just shout: MOVE YOUR FEET, PLLLLLLEEEAAASSSEEEEEEE

Crowd support very much in favour of o'brien, couldnt do much about that. Sams match must have been the only sunny hour of the day, gotta be thankful for that.

First serve was more than a little off, second serve was mainly the kicker, backhand sucked big style today, conditions were nice, and not windy. Those lowish balls that need smacking but also lifting over the net, they were a real concern today, not one of them cleared the net as a return.

MOVE YOUR FEET

First set.....up 2-0, o'b broke back to 3-2 up, few more dble faults, somehow got it back to 6-4. Second set up 5-1, got broken 5-3

Needs to improve (sorry)

Mauresmo struggled against cornet, dodgy serving from her too

I presume casey lost her match, she was knocking back some redbulls, but that didn't seem to help, crap and windy for that match forced me to go back to hotel and get more clothes

i have pictures, but my battery is running low and im unsure they will upload before it dies

Sam has drawn Ioana Raluca Olaru in the first round. Nice match-up for Sam there :)

And out of form Vaidisova R2 :D Go Sam :rocker2:

Jun 20th, 2008, 10:23 AM
She isn't known to bring her best form to Wimbledon but hopefully she can take out Nicole in the 2nd round.

aussie_fan
Jun 20th, 2008, 10:23 AM
Love Sam's draw :drool:

Can make 3rd round here

Ben.
Jun 20th, 2008, 10:38 AM
A 3rd Round appearance is possible for Sam I agree, but remember we should take this one step at a time so that we don't get too disappointed if she loses.

Dani12
Jun 20th, 2008, 11:34 AM
:lol: I was thinking a bit more ambitious such as quarter final. But knowing me, she'll lose first round now. But in saying that, she SHOULD beat Olaru, Vaidisova (It'd be sad if she lost to Ondraskova), Dellacqua (Fingers crossed) and then could have a good crack at Chakvetadze.

OZTENNIS
Jun 20th, 2008, 01:59 PM
Chakers has been in bad form in recent times too, so both Casey and Sam have a shot at the quarter finals...
But usually an Aussie comes unstuck before then and loses to a revelation such as Suarez Navarro or Kostanic Tosic (Sam at Aussie in '07)
Anyway, as long as Sam can win her first match, I will be happy :)

GOOD LUCK :cool:

I agree with all the above. I feel that SS has got a great chance in her first round match. Let's see what can happen from there. Good luck to Casey as well.

awesome, thanks. They had better show sam's match, because I am actually considering staying up for it. I no longer have a dvd recorder, so I have no choice. I either stay up and be absolutely dead on my feet tomorrow or not watch it at all.

There is no way they will show Samantha's match...
Federer will be on Centre Court opening play...
There is no way they will show Stosur over Federer, even though we see every single match Federer plays :rolleyes:

aussie_fan
Jun 23rd, 2008, 03:45 AM
i would say there would be a chance of fox showing it, their coverage starts at 9. Federer doesn't start till 10 and nine have exclusive rights i think to a few selected matches and you would think the opening mkatch on cc would be one of them.

Anyway i don't have fox so i'll be on here at 9 following the live scores. Go Sam!

30-30 .. misses a FH down the line
30-40 .. SET POINT!
GAME AND FIRST SET TO SAMMY STOSUR!

She's in complete control at the moment. A few lose forehands and volleys crept into her game towards the end of the set but hopefully she can keep those to a minimum. Olaru is being very erratic, and for a while looked to take the net from Sam, which worked a little, but not enough to take control.


Casey D was just on the telly, smiling of course :D She's in hot pink at the moment! Looking rather hot..

Deuce
Ad Olaru
Game Olaru.. missed a chance there

Olaru looks to have a pretty predictable serve. It's by no means a weak serve, but she puts a fair amount of slice on the ball, so Sammy is always looking for it to slide to the FH, which it has done for the majority of the match so far. Her ball toss is also far infront of her, and she lunges into the court as she serves, and when Sam returns a ball with pace she seems to already be on the back foot. Very smart from Sam.

Stosur def. Olaru 6-2 6-2

Finished off with a FH winner down the line :drool:

A great match from Sam all round. Her serving was outstanding, her volleys solid, and she serve volleyed a fair amount with lots of success. She was so consistent though! A few errors crept in here and there, but all round it was one of the most consistent performances I've seen from Sam.

Olaru's serve really was what Sam pounced on. Odds on, it was going to the forehand atleast 75% of the time, so Sam really looked to step inside the court, and take the return early and aggresively. When she did this, Olaru was instantly on the back foot in the point. Her ball toss is so far forward that she lands far inside the court, and since Sam was returning so early, Olaru hit the ball while her body was heading backwards, to counter the pace and/or depth. Olaru wasn't really solid of the ground, and her stroked weren't exactly penetrating. Didn't really bother Sam at all.

Sam can't afford to miss as many chances against Vaidisova in R2 though. I think she converted 5 of about 15 BP's :help: This match could have easily been 6-1 6-0 if she'd taken more chances, however 6-2 6-2 is still incredibly good.

So, going into R2, there's still room for improvement. She can take many more of her chances, and must play smarter when these chances arise. For example, on many of her BP chances, she dumped the forehand return into the net on numerous times - just trying to be over aggressive - whereas I think getting the ball into play and getting in the point would be smarter and more rewarding. Also, she could cut down on the volley errors. A few pissweak misses in there, also from the forehand.

So there's still room for small improvement there, which is a good thing considering how convincing she was. She completely controlled Olaru, well done Sammy and good luck against Vaidisova :hug:

Ben.
Jun 23rd, 2008, 12:36 PM
Well just as long as she stays agressive & doesn'tchuck in a few errors here & there, she'll do well against nicole.

Interview on Wimbedon site ;)

---------------------------------

S. Stosur - 23 June

Monday, 23 June 2008

Samantha Stosur def. Ioana Raluca Olaru 6-2, 6-2

Q. Back couple of months training. How did you feel out there?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: I felt great, yeah. Really settled and calm and wasn't too nervous and thought I hit the ball well. Overall played pretty well.

Q. Did you fatigue at all? Do you feel any effect?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: No, not at all. I felt good out there, and I felt fine after. Yeah, I don't know. I feel fine.

Q. Obviously just coming off the back of Eastbourne and played really well there, how are you finding this surface?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: I'm really enjoying the grass this year. In the past I've kind of struggled with it, had some good matches and some other not so good matches at all. But yeah, this season I've had a lot of match practice, probably the most matches I've ever had coming into Wimbledon. So I think that's probably been able to help my game and for me to feel more confident when I'm playing out there.

Q. Speaking of Wimbledon, it obviously gives you a lift to be back here. This is a pretty special tournament, isn't it?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: Absolutely. I've always loved playing here. Unfortunately, never really had the kind of results that I've wanted. It is a special event, and every time you go on that court you get that extra bit of a buzz.

There's so many Australians here, as well, you almost feel at home. More similar to the Aussie Open than anywhere else.

Q. Do you feel reaching the semis at Eastbourne was a bit of a turning point going into Wimbledon, like, yeah, I'm definitely where I want to be, or just sort of a natural progression?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: Maybe a bit of both. You want to be playing those sorts of matches going into a Grand Slam, but it has been a better result than what I have had the last couple of months, as well.

It was probably a good time for it to happen leading into a Grand Slam. Yeah, just good to get some more matches. I think the more matches you play on grass, the more comfortable you feel.

Q. Watching your game, you're serving and volleying a lot. Have you been practicing that a lot?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: Yeah. Since getting once the French Open finished, then you go onto the grass, yeah, Dave and I have been working on that quite a lot and just basically trying to be aggressive.

If I can serve well, I think it's good for me to follow it in after the serve and hit volleys rather than stay back, as long as I kind of get a feel for it. If it's working, keep doing it. If not, then start mixing it up more. I think it can definitely be an asset for me.

Q. Obviously you think you can win any time you go out there on the court, but what are your expectations after your last six months or so?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: It's kind of the same thing: Every time you step on the court you've got to expect or believe that you can win the match. I think coming back from having so much time off, maybe that's even more important than what it usually is. If you don't believe that, there's no point even being out there.

After having that time I think it's extra important, and I'm ready to play. If I wasn't, then I wouldn't be out here. That's kind of just all in the past now.

I've played for a couple of months now and I'm feeling good, so it's just kind of the same mindset that I've always had for now.

Q. Is there a time when you were sick that you didn't think you'd come back here?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: Not really. I always stayed pretty positive, and I kind of believed with the doctors and the trainers and everyone else that was helping me through it, they said that I would be fine more than likely. They were pretty sure about all that, but it was just a matter of when. Nobody could put a time frame on that. I managed to get through it, I think pretty quickly in the big scheme of things from what I know about what I had. The more I've learned about it, I think I've done pretty well to be back out here playing so soon.

Q. More than anything, is it a relief to feel fit and healthy and all the rest and just doing what you love?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: Oh, for sure. It's amazing when you can't do something that you love doing, how much you miss it and how much you want to get back to that.

I think that also kind of drove me to keep just doing the right things to get better. You know, I've always loved playing tennis, but when you can't do it for nine months you kind of realize that, yeah, that is a huge chunk of my life and I want to be able to experience that: practicing and playing matches and having people cheer for you and all that sort of thing.

It is a good feeling, and when you don't get it, you do start to miss it.

Q. Do you enjoy the tour?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: Yeah, I do. As long as you just go home when you can and enjoy that aspect, as well, then when you're on the road you do what you've got to do. Yeah, I quite like it.

Q. Vaidisova in the next round. How do you feel about matching up with her?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: Yeah, I've played her a few times. I actually played her in Eastbourne last year and I had a few three setters against her, but never been able to get her over the line. It's going to be a tough match, but I think I'm playing pretty well.

I think I'm playing better on the grass now than what I have previously, so, yeah, I've just got to go out there, I think, more be concerned about what I'm doing and try and play well and focused on my goals and see what happens.

Q. Talking about the serving and volleying and being more aggressive, is that the approach you'll take into this match?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: Yeah, for sure. I'm not going to change anything now. It's worked for the last two weeks in my first round, so I'm going to keep along those lines. But like I said before, if it's not going so well, then I just kind of play that by ear.

But that's probably going to be my first kind of tactic when I go out there is to be aggressive and try to come to the net.

Q. I'm sorry if this was asked earlier, but when match point was over with that forehand winner, what was your feeling at that point?

SAMANTHA STOSUR: Just really happy. Yeah, I guess I don't know, just happy to get through a match here and feel like I played well and be in the second round.

Just saw that Sam has overtaken Alicia as the second most 'posted about' player in this forum, behind Dokic. Is this evidence of a changing in the guard? Of Sam becoming more popular? Or is it just that she has been in better form over the past few years and people have felt the need to say more here than in Mount Molik?

Interesting too, that in the last 10 years, only five Australian women ***I think*** (Nicole Pratt, Jelena Dokic, Alicia Molik, Samantha Stosur and Casey Dellacqua) have held the position of Australia's top ranked woman. I don't think Rachel McQuillan or Evie Dominikovic held the No.1 ranking during their hot streak in 2001, but I may be wrong...does this showcase the commitment and talent of these players or of a lack of depth in Australian tennis?

Are you looking at the number of posts?

I think it's both reasons. I would talk about lish more, but basically, there's nothing to say :sad: she just keeps losing. And yes, i think sam probably is more popular, now. It just comes with her having better results, not being a more likeable, or better person or anything like that (not saying that she isn't, just discussing reasons).
It's a real shame about alicia. She was the first person I ever watched play tennis, like on the tv. In Jan 2005 I was flicking through the channels, and I always thought tennis was boring to watch. But i thought that i might try and watch it for once. I then noticed that it was an aussie that was playing, so I watched. Within a week, I was screaming at the tv for her against lindsay davenport in the quarters at AO. Haha, i remember asking my dad "who's lindsay davenport? is she good?" my dad was like, "uh, yeah" lol :p And she was on the rise at this point, then it all just dropped off, and i've never screamed at the tv like that since :sad: It's a shame I missed all the excitement of olympics, end of 2004, sydney title etc. Don't get me wrong, I love watching sam play, it's just that I have a real soft spot for lish, and I want to be screaming at the tv for her again.
Haha, rant :p

Good luck tonight sam!!

Well, alicia hasn't had a lot to post about for a while. I would still say alicia is more popular than sam, don't think wtatworld is a complete judge of how popular a player is.

6-2. She won that game with NO first serves in! Sam needs to be much more patient with her returns I think.
