Such a good match from Sam :bounce: I badly want to see a QF with her and Azarenka

Taking out a tough opponent easily...

Damn. Thought Ai would put up more of a challenge. Congrats to Sam.

Yikes...losing to Stosur in the opener is never a good thing...but she's always a slow starter and rarely does well here (though when she does, she wins it...)...good luck in dubs ai.

Not surprising, Ai usually has a bit of a slow start to the season. Good win for Stosur though!

Ai's first round was better BEFORE her promotion to 9th seed!

stosur played pretty well then
bad luck for ai though, she would probably want her old draw back

Tell me about it :D


Good match from Sam, much more controlled than usual. Great start to the season.
Treated herself to a makeover aswell. New racquet, clothes, hair and no sunnies? I thought she looked hot. :hearts:

Sam was a bit scratchy at first, but showed her best when down all those breakpoints. Lookin good.

Very happy with Sam's performance, still needs to work on her concentration and returns but that is pretty much it. Her backhand has improved immensely, I was sooo hope to see that. I think she can have a bit of a run here and it will be good to see her have another successful aussie summer.

ai is such a clean player who never gives up its a credit to her she is a great ambassador for Japanese tennis.

well done my sammy! great match very agressive and the serve was on fire again as it always is in Australia - she will be tough to beat here
