Re: Sammy Videos

It's really noticeable watching this again how calm Sam was throughout this match, as 1MSF remarked earlier. She was actually being outplayed in the early games, but she never really looked concerned.

The other thing that I noticed is the difference between Sam's shots when she's striking the ball pretty well, and how effective they are when her game is really flowing. She wasn't playing badly by any means in the first few games, but Cepelova was handling her serve and groundstrokes with ease. Same helped her a little by giving her a few errors, but the main thing is that Jana was absorbing Sam's power and taking over the initiative in the points. I recall being very nervous at that point, because it looked like Sam wasn't going to really be able to hurt her on this court. Then she just flipped a switch and turned things up a notch, and from that point on she was the one dictating the play.

I think that there are some matches in which Sam never really finds that extra gear, and then it's a real struggle for her. Sometimes that's due to external conditions: playing at night, in cold weather, on an unresponsive court etc., but I think that sometimes her game just doesn't click. She cops a lot of criticism for those matches, people say she chokes or panics or whatever, but I don't think that's fair. There is probably a mental aspect to it, but I think to a large extent it's just the flip side of the fact that her game flows so beautifully when it's on.

May I shamefully ask if you were able to record the whole Casey/Sam Interviews and the one at the end of the doubles when the whole team is here? I can't find it and I'm not in the right location...
Hi AsianAussie - my pleasure - sorry unfortunately my internet connection was really bad last Sunday so i couldn't cap the channel 7 version of the match I was lucky the connection was good enough to at least capture a small part of Casey's interview with Sam.
