Sam could beat a Belgian and then Serena and lose to Schiavone in the final
That's definitely a possibility, but to be honest I wouldn't be too unhappy if it did happen in this tournament. Wins against Kim and Serena would be quite nice as a lead-up to the AO. She only better not lose to Fran in Melbourne
Not an easy half of the draw for Sam, but on the other hand I guess you gotta expect tough draws & matches from her now that she is in her career best form. The tougher the matches, the better I'd say.
