Re: RG SF (4) Garbine Muguruza made 1st RG Final def Samantha Stosur 6-2 6-4

Sam started off extremely poorly, but Garbine was just fantastic. By the end, Sam (sans serve) was fantastic, too, but just much too late against a Garbine in red hot form.

We're proud of you Sam,...

Re: Did Sam Stosur underachieve on clay?

Exactly. I think half of the fan thread whenever Sam comes up against an enigmatic player is deciphering how tall they are, what hand is dominant and if they hit flat or with topspin.

Then we...

Re: Did Sam Stosur underachieve on clay?

They mean that, had Pennetta beaten Kerber at the QF stage of that US Open (from memory, Pennetta was a set all and up a break in the 3rd against Kerber in that match before losing), Sam's chances of...

Re: WWW RG SF: [4] Muguruza vs. [21] Stosur

Yes. I personally saw Sam travel to Antarctica by boat, pull out a lighter and slooooowly melt the polar ice caps, all in preparation for the eventual Halep match at RG. She's a wily one, that...

Re: Roland Garros R16: [21] Sam Stosur def. [6] Simona Halep 7-6(0) 6-3

Nearly vintage Sam (was completely vintage Sam after the rain delay). Please stay for a while, Sam. Your fans, and the tour, need you. :hearts:

Oh, Simona. You are a great player and it will...

Re: Bombshell! Serena Williams just took one breath of air!

They were too busy trying to implicate Sharapova in the stealing of Serena's oxygen. :oh:

Re: Birmingham R1 (13) Svetlana Kuznetsova def Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-6(4) 5-7 6-2

Hah, it's an error.

She beat Karin Knapp.

Re: French Open R3: (19) Stosur def. (9) Cibulkova 6-4 6-4

I actually have grown to really respect and like Maria, over the years. I'd also wager that a few Sam fans have a soft spot for her. :)

Re: French Open R3: (19) Stosur def. (9) Cibulkova 6-4 6-4

Spot on. :) I also hope for sun, and lots of it, from now on.

But I'd also add one more thing to that equation - depth.

David Taylor, it looks like. From the (admittedly few) glimpses I saw of the match, her strongest assets are starting to get highlighted. I remember what happened when a certain someone else's...

Re: French Open R3: (19) Stosur def. (9) Cibulkova 6-4 6-4

Yeah, because hitting almost as many winners off the ground makes you a serve bot. :rolleyes: Oh, and by the way - Domi was returning quite well today.

On topic - very well done, Sam. Her best...

Re: Hobart QF: [1]Sam Stosur def. [8]Bojana Jovanovski 6-3 6-2

First set was better than most of her sets here, but was still a bit shaky. Forehand was still slightly askew, but her defence and backhand won her that set. The second set, however, can only be...

Re: Hobart R2: (1) Stosur survives Mladenovic 6-4 2-6 7-6 (9-7)

This thread is just oozing with bitterness.

Sam, you are a hair-colour draining player to be a fan of, but winning two matches in Australia has exceeded my expectations. Hopefully this match gives...

Re: Sofia F: Simona Halep def. Sam Stosur 2-6 6-2 6-2

Absolutely - power, spin and slice vs. tactical intelligence and angled shotmaking.

Re: Sofia F: Simona Halep def. Sam Stosur 2-6 6-2 6-2

Sorry, I should re-phrase:

Sam's tactical best was what was problematic for Simona in the first set. I still do not think, groundstroke-wise, Sam was at her best.

But with Sam and Simona both...

Re: Sofia F: Simona Halep def. Sam Stosur 2-6 6-2 6-2

She played well - not really well. Her ROS was still off (and she needed that against a good returner), and her forehand never got completely going. But as you said, Halep played a wonderful game to...

Re: Sofia RR: Stosur def. Vesnina 6-3 6-3

Good win - bit scrappy, but experience and grit got her through. The court definitely helps Sam's serve, but I'm not sure about the rest of her game - we shall see in other matches.

It is a...

Re: Who will be the draw's top half Finalist?

Awww, that would be really cute of Sharapova, serving Sam some food before the final; it's almost as cute as the vitriol that comes out of your mouth on a daily basis. If you would be so kind, could...

Thank you for both of your analyses - I had inferred as much, but it is obviously better to hear. :)

Re: Charleston QF: Sam Stosur def. Venus Williams 6-3, 4-6, 6-3

I am sad I missed it; it looks quite a high quality match from the highlights and W/UE distribution. But I did not mind - as long as Sam won, I was going to be happy; a great win Sam. :)

Ah, I...

Re: WWW Charleston Semi: Sammy Stosur v Serena Williams?

How classy of you.

Let's go Sam; you have beaten her three times, you can beat her a fourth. Not getting my hopes up though, Serena is...well...Serena, and Sam must be tired.

But I'll live in...

Re: AO R2: Wozniacki struggles past Tatishvili 6-1 7-6(4)

The same one you were, I'm very sure, and I can assure you - if I thought it was hindrance, she had every right to believe so too.

Re: AO R2: Wozniacki struggles past Tatishvili 6-1 7-6(4)

Technically both were not "fake"; she had blisters, and Anna definitely called out "c'mon" before Wozniacki got her racquet on to the ball.

Now I personally do not agree about when she took her...
