Impressive performance by Sam. Great serving and looking to come to the net as often as possible... as expected. Grass suits her game perfectly. Good luck in the SF! :yeah:

Caro forgot how to hit a backhand down the line, she tried to pass Stosur crosscourt every single time she came in. She also didn't realize that every single one of Sam's returns went down the line, she just stood these flinging her arms at the ball. She still hasn't convinced me that she can even be a Top20 player.

Congrats to Sam. :yeah:

Sam's volleys won her the match, plain and simple, two or three were just jaw-dropping. Caroline looked the better player from the back of the court but that means nothing because she couldn't handle the tactical side of it today. Good learning experience for Wozniaki, excellent win for Stosur.

Very impressive performance :yeah:. Only her return of first serve was bad, but she truely amazed me with some of her volleys. Wimbledon Champion, surely not, but she totally deserved her WC. I wouldn't want to face her in R1.

I still have the same impressive about Caroline. The FH is too weak at the moment. I wonder how she defeated Sveta. A good tournament for her :hug:.

Watching this match, i think both can make the second week at wimby. Caroline is seeded so that will help as her movement wasn't great. Sam is looking good and i agree with the above poster that her net play was off today.

Awesome, well done Sammy! :) Please get a kind draw at Wimbledon now...

Sam is the perfect example of how to plan a successful comeback. Other players should take note. Only come back when you are READY to play.

Very accurate analysis !

You don't get a lot of S&Vs on the tour today so Caro was a bit unlucky to get one if FULL STRIDE.

Very nice from Stosur :eek:

This is a great learning experience from Caroline, in her position you learn more from losing.

Caroline is young and has tremendous promise, her time will come. She just needs to beef up the serve and forehand a bit.;)

Great win for Sammy, into a semi final of a tier 2 a couple weeks after she lost in the semi's of a 75k.

Good to hear she is playing well and volleying well, hopefully she can keep it up and take herself into her 4th WTA final, hopefully winning this time!

Bad luck to Caro:)
