Re: ...HardCourt

Good that Sam won the first set, but not a very convincing scoreline so far against a player ranked #164. Come on Sam, you can do better than this!

Re: ...HardCourt

4 BPs saved in that game. Don't know whether to be happy about that or not

Re: ...HardCourt

^This is kind of how Osaka was for Sam last year as well. Just scraping through against players she should really be comfortably beating...

Well at least her aces match her DFs now.

Re: ...HardCourt

I wonder what is contributing to Sam serving so many double faults of late. Very uncharacteristic of her.

Re: ...HardCourt

Sam breaks Sema out of the blue, after not winning a point on her first two service games this set. Seems to be the story of the match: Sam winning the decisive points in an otherwise very tight match.

I'm not sure but I think it might be related to the fact that she's also been hitting a lot of aces lately. My hunch is that Sam is trying to score more free points off her serve. For someone with such a huge serve she doesn't usually get all that many free points on it, more often it goes to a rally in which she gets the upper hand. I think she might be taking a bit more risk on her serves than she used to. If she can hit more aces and unreturnable serves on a consistent basis that would get her through her service games more comfortably, and allow her to put more pressure on her opponent's serve.

Re: ...HardCourt

Woohoo, 6-4 6-2! After two consecutive DFs Sam finally got pissed off with herself and ran away with it.

Probably true. But I think she did get a fair amount of free points on her serve.. unreturnables or serves that set up an easy put away. Sure she didnt hit alot of aces bt didnt really matter.

At the moment the risk of getting more free points isnt really paying off with the amount of DFs she is hitting. It cost her in her match against Julia.

Do you think it has anything to do at all with the small injury she has. I mean we dont know how bad it is but it seems like the DFs have really started to come since we heard of the injury. Second guessing herself?

Re: ...HardCourt

Not as convincing as it should have been (at least on the scoreboard) but still a win. Lets hope the DFs are just a temporary glitch.

I think she went through a similar period earlier in the year (maybe around Indian Wells and Miami). It might be because she's being more aggressive as stromatolite says, or it could be the leftover effects from her ab strain, or a slight loss of confidence in it.

Got away with the second set pretty comfortably in the end. Next round against a qualifier or Razzano who aren't playing today, so Sam gets tomorrow off.
