Soooo close against Sam. But she's starting to play a bit better, at least.
Oh, I have a funny story from the Olympics. Fran was playing terribly in doubles against Hsieh/Chuang to the point where she completely boiled over after an UE and whacked a ball in fury out of the court which landed somewhere on top of Centre Court. She got a warning for ball abuse.

"I will now call her LP Hlavackova - low percentage Hlavackova. I hope she doesn't drive a car the way she drives her groundstrokes!"
