Sam needs to hold Marion out of 9th spot, as historically the 1st alternate usually gets a start in the YEC as someone always pulls out with a damaged ego, oops, I mean injury.
Agree about keeping the alt spot. That would be an added bonus if she wins the title this week: Marion could no longer pass her even by winning Moscow.
In Sam's defense, only the 1st set today was bad (really bad tbh). She's had too many matches this year in which she's started well and collapsed like a souffle at the end. Nice to see her being tough at the business end of matches for a change.
