Has anyone noticed that Sam has now become very consistent she betas all the players ranked below her! This was her first 1st round loss for the year!! But for someone reasosn she just isnt challenging the top players she is not even coming close to winning. She has a big serve but also gets broken alot! She has the game i just wish she could put it all together and start challening the top players!!
yeah sam has trouble keeping her came together consistently sometimes... especially against the top players... but im positive it will come... maybe shes a bit like alicia... you know a "late bloomer"
I've thought this for the last few months that maybe Sam is going to be like Alicia. I hate comparing players because they are all so different but I really think that Sam has ALL the criteria she needs to be winning those big games, it just needs to all sync together. Once it does then look out.
When Al's game all synced together she went on a 41 of 48 matches winning streak. I've believed for a while that the same thing is going to happen to Sam and the other players won't know what the hell hit them!
It's just SO damn frustrating watching her singles games in the meantime... If only we had a fast-forward button!
i'm tired of sammy performing like this, however it will take some time for her to make a big breakthrough i reckon. she has the game & its just a matter of having the belief to beat the top players. c'mon sammy, you can do it!
She won't make any such breakthrough on clay - that's for sure. I think too many of the Aussies have a 'head thing' when it comes to playing on clay.
If Sammy is to cause a massive upset, it will come on the English grasscourts. She is capable of knocking around many of the top players, especially on grass. As long as she is able to improve her ranking this year i am happy.
