She did great in fact. Fixing the thing by herself. Sure, weíre late in the season, but many would have pulled out.
Bertrand, you are the undisputed champion of the tantalizing cryptic remark
Any chance of telling us who this "someone we know" was?
I agree completely with your analysis of the match btw. This was exactly the kind of match Sam has been losing this year (and before), but despite a few sloppy errors here and there, she really never lost her focus. Doi reminded me a lot of Fran in the RG '10 final, with her great serving and smart use of angles. The big difference is precisely that Sam didn't get flustered this time.
