This is a thread for the result of Sam in Asian tournaments...

Sam's quarter in the Tokyo's main draw:

(1) Safina v BYE
Q v Kanepi
Szavay v Dulko
Benesova v Razzano (16)

(12) Stosur v Q
Schiavone v Sharapova
Kleybanova v Morita
BYE v Zvonareva (6)
----------
What a horrible draw from Sam... should be an easy first round. Either Sharapova or Schiavone in the second (TERRIBLE) and then Zvonareva (can be difficult) the Safina (once again should be difficult)...

Is Sam playing Doubles???

Harvs
Sep 25th, 2009, 10:11 AM
if she can get past sharapova shes in a good section of the draw... zvonareva is playing average and dinara had a shithouse US Open... sharapova will be very tough though, especially given that sam has never beaten her before..

A good test, I think it will be better for Sams motivation to be in a situation where she isn't completly considered a favourite. Take a bit of the pressure off.

I think Vera has been improving though, she was playing really well at the U.S Open...just has the mental issues again. Maria will always be tough.

Good luck Sam:)

I can see Sam making R3 and giving venus a run for her money... Sam hasn't had a great run in a while and I have a feeling that it will be start here in both singles and doubles...

R1 - Cornet: They are ties at 1-1, but Cornet has droped behind the pack lately... should be a 2 setter (maybe one tough set)

[I just hope that she doesn't have to face Wozniak in R2]

Sam and Renee have a very good chance of locking up the last spot for Doubles YEC with a good showing in Beijing...

Stubsur are 930 pts infront of their nearest rival Medina Garrigues and Ruano Pascual...
All Stubsur have to do is equal or better the result of MG/RP at Beijing and they will qualify (as there is only 750 points avaliable after this event)!!!

Smashing Sam
Oct 5th, 2009, 06:54 AM
Iīll keep my fingers crossed for this to happen, Wedgie!!!

Wedgie619
Oct 6th, 2009, 06:24 AM
(Before Tokyo) Stubsur is on 5043 and only those above 3293 points (Stubsur's total - avaliable points) can overtake them...
only Ai/Hantuchova (not competing) and Medina Garrigues/Ruano Pascual are above this...
MG/RP just lost their R2 (Bye R1) - which gives them 5 points and now only 750 can be gained in the last 2 tournamnets...
MG/RP highest possible total = (4123 + 5 + 750) = 4878 points

Stubsur has qualified for YEC!!!!

Oct 10th, 2009, 08:16 AM
I don't want top get ahead of myself because of Sam's current form, but there are some good matches that she can play herself into form here... Peng was injured last week so if she withdraws then she'd have a Q/LL, Morigami is always an outside chance to play really well and Date Krumm should put up a challenge...

Hoping for her to live up to her seeding though... a Sf against Wozniacki (hopefully) should be a good match...
Just play well... PLEASE!!!

Keadz
Oct 10th, 2009, 08:19 AM
She could have made it far in this tournamennt if we were back in August, but unfortunatly with Sams sudden drop in form I will be surprised if she wins her first round.

If she starts playing well again, I wouldn't say a semi final/final appearance is out of the question.

I kind of agree, but then again with Sam: who knows? She was playing terribly right after the French Open, and then suddenly ran into some form again. Hopefully she's moved on from the match against Sharapova and will come out swinging this week. :)

Keadz
Oct 17th, 2009, 06:09 AM
I would have preferred she lost easily than this shit.

I thought she didn't choke anymore :( :sad:

From 6-0 3-1, seemingly doing everything right with 8 aces, 3 in a row. To winning only 1 more game of the last 6.

Soooo pathetic.

Please turn it around in the third set, another three set loss to Caro this year isn't really acceptable...an much as I like Caro.

From winning nearly every point on return in the first to struggling to get two points on return now.

Caro game point...hope this isn't the point which makes Sam lose.

Keadz
Oct 17th, 2009, 06:39 AM
Caro holds for 4-3, massive opportunity lost. Would have changed the momentum considerably.

Hope she can stick in there for a couple more games.

:sobbing:

Why did she have to put us through that.

Thank Christ she won.

BIIIIGGGG opportunity to win her first title now! Beaten Fran already this year, who is equally as retarded in finals.

I have a headache from getting so nervous! But I feel like Sam proved she was a fighter in this match. :)

A title would be the cherry on top of a really good year, and it would set her up for an even better 2010! :hearts: You can do it, Sammy!

Daniel.
Oct 17th, 2009, 07:05 AM
Schiavone has nothing to damage Stosur, the only way Sam will lose is if she plays like she did at the US Open, and in her previous final against Pennetta.

First singles title there for the taking!

Congrats on beating one of the best players this season.

Oct 17th, 2009, 11:07 AM
How did Sam win this after losing the steamtrain momentum she had from 6-0 2-0??

I left at 6-0 4-6 2-2 after Sam had squandered points for 4-1 lead in the 2nd and just seemed to be hanging in there in the 3rd set. But Sam 2009 has a bit more grit than Sam pre-2008 so what a great effort. :)

Cmon Sam its time :)

Is it going to be on Foxtel like her last final was... or was that only on because it was a bigger tournament???

I think LA would of been easier to find coverage for Foxtel.

Nice start from Sam, going to have leave soon, will be wondering for hours whetehr Sam will win.

So far the best the returner has been able to do is 0-30 (Franny)... I dont even think Sam has got ahead in the count while returning...
