What a stupid comment. Game wise (shank wise) there is no way Sam can be confortable playing on grass, plus Sam is not a youngster either, so don´t wait for her to peak for grass anytime soon.

Not as much as finger licking Sam Smith...

Sam had never been beyond R2 of the USO until two years ago and she has now won it (so however ridiculous such quotes seem you never know with Sammy)

several Finals? probably she meant several 4th rounds?

Sam had never been beyond R2 of the USO until two years ago and she has now won it (so however ridiculous such quotes seem you never know with Sammy)

she has a game suitable for fast hard courts, and definitely not suitable for grass .... She is a less grass-courter than Errani hard-courter

I agree- just wouldnt die of shock if she did it, given how unpredictable she is.

What's really inevitable is that any time anybody (doesn't really matter who) says anything overoptimistic about any player, somebody here will start a thread on it. I mean, who cares, really?

Given that you're the only person who complained about it, maybe you should take a hint. :)

What on earth made her say this? Alicia seems to be a reasonable woman.

It's tough enough for players whose games are suited to grass-- Davenport, Sharapova, Henin, Clijsters, Bartoli, Lisicki, Kvitova; to make SEVERAL Wimbledon finals. Sam would do well to make another final at RG or USO in her career (very conceivable).

Sam relies on spin to get the ball up and away from her opponents, and on grass it just sits there for some BBB to bash it down the court back at her, resulting in a shank.

Take what hint? I never knew there was any rule you have to go with the majority opinion on a thread (this may be news to you of course;))

Guys I'm pretty sure she meant USO, she just said the wrong slam.

Alicia said during the fox sports coverage of Wimbledon that she expects Sam to perform better at home than at Wimbledon, just because AO I HC and grass isn't that good for Stosur's weapons.

So yeah. Don't think she meant Wimbledon.

Hingis must have left some of her good white powder behind back when she was in Australia, looking a kitten heels mess.

To be honest Stosur has the game to win ANY slam but it's the head that keeps her away from doing that. It's true that grass is her least best surface but you know, she has power and a nice serve. She fails on that serve because she's not willing to compromise on hitting the flat serve and forehand because of her determination to keep her style of play on every surface, and it's a shame I think.

Her 3 most recent losses on grass: Suarez Navarro. Rus. Czink.

That is all.

Alicia honey... I'm a Stosur fan and I think that Sam does SO bad on grass because of the mental factor, I think that a player who has had so much success in doubles in Wimbledon and has made the SF 3 times in Eastbourne should definitely do better in Wimbledon, I don't know something like R3 or R4 as average, but I don't see Sam being capable of making the final at Wimbledon...

She has been in 3. 2 Doubles and 1 Mixed. There will be no Singles Finals though.

4 actually, 1 mixed (2008) and 3 doubles (2008, 2009, 2011)

Gottalove an Aussie talking up the Aussies.

If Sam can learn to play on grass then she could be a chance.

Big service
Big forehand
Slice backhand
Good at the net

Sounds like the sort of player that could do well at Wimbledon, even Martina Navratilova has questioned Sam's Wimbledon results and thinks Sam should be competitive.

The main reason being that there was a time when the Aussies were very competitive at Wimbledon, the Aussies never had as much success at the other two (French & USO)

Well I like Alicia but that makes me doubt about her tennis knowledge if she really meant that as in single finals. Even Stosur's serve is less effective on grass cuz it takes away the big advantage on the kick serve. Her groundies having loads of spin on them as well are much more less effective and it's just too quick for her to adjust to the balls.

I think she is right but in Legends Doubles about 10 years from now. I can see it.
