Re: ...HardCourt II

From 40-0 to MP

Got away with it in the end, more by luck than good management.

Didn't want to see Sam bow out of the tournament like that.

On CC Petra has take the first set against Serena

They were never really in this match, pretty poor performance overall.

Really terrible! Probably 2 points from the game would make it into Sam's highlights reel and that's pretty generous! Hopefully they play better in Dubai - at least they are playing for a longer run this time round - they were really bad when they first started playing together as well - lets hope history repeats itself this year!

Who would have thought both her matches would have similar scorelines!

Good to see Petra playing well. I quite like her.

Not a good day for our Sam...

I shall hate the 6/2, 6/4 result forever! Same in singles & doubles...

Bah. Sucks that they lost, but even more it sucks that Sam played poorly. Hopefully she can regroup over the next couple of days for Dubai.

I like that draw. Hopefully Sam can have a deep run and at least make semis.

Re: ...HardCourt II

3rd quarter would probably have been better for the first couple of rounds, but from QF on this is the best quarter. Potentially three tricky lefties to negotiate for a spot in the SF. If she gets that far I can see both Vika and Serena tanking before then, so she would have a realistic shot at the title. But one match at a time

Well Vika's still 7-2 against her, and both her losses were on clay, which is easily her worst surface, so I won't be holding my breath on that one.

Better news is the fact that both Caro and Marion are in Serena's quarter. So even if Serena tanks (I think she will, pretty sure she only entered as insurance in case she didn't get the #1 in Doha) at most one of them will advance beyond the QF. So Sam is sure to be still top 10 at the end of the week.

Re: ...HardCourt II

With Serena and Vika in the final at Doha, you'd think at least one of them will tank. Or Vika might do her, "play one match and then become extremely injured" trick to avoid a zero pointer.

Anyway, we shouldn't be talking about this. Sam is totally going to lose to Lepchenko

Unbelievable!

Why would I not defend Sam? She is my favourite player. I used to support the US girls, Chris Evert, Jennifer Capriati & Lindsay Davenport but they unfortunately all retired. I hope Sam will not be retiring any time soon...

Chances are they'll both turn up, but neither is very fond of playing a full programme in 2 consecutive weeks unless it's absolutely necessary. If Vika wins today (unlikely, but not impossible) I think the #1 would still be up for grabs in Dubai, and I'm pretty sure that Serena would need to reach the SF at least to be sure of staying at #1. In that case they might both go the distance.

If Serena wins today she's got the top spot sown up until Miami at least (unless Vika does something really embarrassing like asking for a WC for Kuala Lumpur). In that case I think they'll both play a round or two and then succumb to some debilitating affliction.

You confident she'll beat Makarova then?
