It's better when she is the underdog. Look forward to watching her again! Good luck!

Re: Sydney 2012.

Another tough field. I'm not going to expect much either but it would be ideal for her to win at least two matches to get some more matchplay under her belt before the AO.

Re: Sydney 2012.

Sammy vs. Franny in the first round of Sydney

(1)Wozniacki v BYE
Cibulkova v Peng
Pavlyuchenkova v Petkovic
Q v (7)Radwanska

(3)Azarenka v Q
Jankovic v Goerges
(wc)Dokic v (wc)Holland
Q v (8)Bartoli

(6)Zvonareva v Kuznetsova
Safarova v Ivanovic
Pennetta v Q
Q v (4)Li

(5)Stosur v Schiavone
Vinci v Hantuchova
Lisicki v Q
(2)Kvitova v BY

Maybe playing another top player will be good for Sam; she'll feel the expectation a little less and not be too worried about losing.

Re: Sydney 2012.

Schiavone is the perfect test - can't think of a better opponent to test your game than your arch nemesis who snatched your Grand Slam away. Bring it on!

If Sam can win a few rounds to meet Kvitty, it will be adequate preparation for AO.

Re: Sydney 2012.

I have to say, seeing Dokic vs Holland next to all these top players is not quite right.

Yeah I agree. If she can get past Franny (and it's a big if after what happened with Benesova), she has a winnable second round match with Vinci/Dani, and then a big test against Petra (or maybe Sabine). Wouldn't be a bad preparation for the AO if she can get to that QF.

But one match at a time...

Totally agree with this statement. Also, even if she loses to Fran, it won't be nearly as shameful as losing to a relative scrub - I'm only saying "shameful" because I think Sam gets too caught up in that, hence her tendency to get tight when competing against such players.

And of all the players for Sam to (possibly) lose against, Fran is the one I would begrudge the least. I still feel that way even after RG'10. The soft spot I have for her is a powerful thing!

Not with the dreams again

Although previous experience suggests that Sam infiltrating the subconscious of TF users is a sure sign of unexpected glory!
