Re: French Open 2014

Sam another HUGE opportunity down the drain by the inability to put Maria to the sword when she was on the edge...

Re: French Open 2014

Maria is pretty much the best CC player around - and she's about the hardest person to put away in tennis besides Serena maybe. Disappointing that Sam couldn't keep her level up - yes, but i'm still feeling really good about this week, showed she's still a contender hopefully she can build on this now for the remainder of the year.

Re: French Open 2014

Proud of Sam's efforts this week. She's done really well. What a shame she had to play Maria so early

Re: French Open 2014

Stosur really played well up until deuce 6-3 4-3 on Sharapova's serve. Maria though really did up the anti and hit a lot of unbelievably good shots at that point, raised the bar, and really moved the pressure off her and onto Stosur to come up with more. The 2nd set really was neck and neck, and it was obvious that if Sharapova won it that she would streamroll the last set. Its a pity Stosur isn't more animated or pumped on court, whilst Screamapova was giving me the shits, I give her credit for really staying focused, fighting and intimidating her opponent in that last set. Looking forward to a good US Open from Sam. Hope she can grab a top 16 seed for that!

Re: French Open 2014

^ Spot on. To borrow the latest AFL term, Maria just plays 'better for longer' and is intense on EVERY point. Mentally draining for most, but not for Maria.

Nice to see that Sam is back in the winners circle after the very indifferent start to the year. She seemed to be getting a little more punch to her game whereas during US hardcourts game looked quite ineffective.

Re: French Open 2014

Soooo disappointing she couldn't get over the line. Massive effort though. Proud of her.
Shame this won't bump her up the rankings much. Through another clay season and in the same position we were before it.
Sigh.............

Re: French Open 2014

Wow Casey and Ashleigh finishing their R3 doubles strongly. They're up 4-6 6-2 4-1.

A QF will be brilliant and give them some hope of making it to Singapore!

Bartacqua eat a tasty bagel at the hands of Errani/Vinci in the first set

I am sure they can get it back. I think they have a good match-up with those two And remember sometimes eating baked goods gives you extra motivation to come back in the next sets
