hmm well if she shows up she should make the first round ahaha, well i cant tell until the draw is out, shes moving an playing very well, she didnt have much luk against janko but she gave her a run i think whith her seeding of 25(i think, with the withdrawels) she should make the 3rd round, but u jus never no with the aus open, lets jus wait till friday =) an fingers crossed for a dream draw.
Yep we will be crossing our fingers.
Hopefully continue on like last year at the AO.
I reckon she can make it to the Quarters with a good draw run.
Just have to wait to see the draw hopefully all goes well for our Sammie
Smash 'Em Sam.
SAM STOSUR # 1
GO CASEY DELLAQUA
WOOOHOOOO!!! the draw is finally out and it is looking good for Sammy to reach the tird round at least..... in the first round sam will be playing a qually and the highest ranch qually after the first round is Kristina Barrois of Germany (117)
In the second round Stosur will go up against either Jelena Kostanic Tosic of Croatia (53) of Australia's own Sophie Ferguson (171)... these two matches should be easy for an in form Stosur so lets hope she brings her A Game.....
If ranking is any indication then Stosur sets up a third round meeting with Anna Chakvetadze (seeded 12).... Sammy has won their only encounter (6-4 6-4 in Linz 2006)
If Sammy reaches the fourth round she sets up an encounter with Patty Schnyder (seeded 8) or Alicia Molik.....
Good Luck Sammy for the AO and hoping that she can reach at least the 4th round (which she has a good chance of doing)
sam has a dream run, all she needs to do is take it an use it shes gota a very strong chance at the 4th rnd, sam jus play ur best tennis an a 4th rnd is urs for sure =) kick some butt grl cant wait to c u soon =)
guys i really think sam has a great draw and could make the quarters... i dont think chekvetadze is as good as her ranking suggests and she will be tired after hobart and if sam makes the third round against probably patty or alicia i think she will have the momentum to win that fourth round match... i wont get ahead of myself but i couldnt have hoped for a better draw for sammy... good luck sammy smash em!
