Re: Brisbane 2012



I have a really bad feeling that she's going to crash out in the second round. But I almost always have that feeling so it probably doesn't mean anything. Can't wait to see the draw and spend ages working out all of the possible ways it can fall apart for Sam

Don't we all? We're Sam fans, it's our duty to expect she'll under-perform.

...or all the possible ways Sam can lose a match based upon the height of her opponent and how flat they can hit.

No way!!! In 2012 Sam is going to stop losing to scrubs and that's going to make all the difference ....

... as will finally outfoxing the tall flathitters by standing a bit further back and mixing up her shots so they can't get any rhythm against her. I can't wait for 2012. Bring it on!!!!

From your lips to God's ears...
I am pretty confident that 2012 will be ever better than 2010 or 2011, too. I just worry about everything . I can't help it.

I hope she can make two slam finals and at least win one of them. I can't wait for her 2012.

Re: Brisbane 2012

She draw Yakimova first round in Brisbane. Same half as Williams same quater is Clijsters.

I keep my expectations low to avoid disappointment. But I secretly also want her to win that golden slam

Sammy beat Yakimova in 2005 comfortably on carpet - and she is only 5"5' so I think that's a pretty good first round match up.

Might be a good chance to get a win over Clijsters. I would hate to see the vitriol in GM in the lead up to a Sam-Serena rematch.

Re: Brisbane 2012

Here is the entire draw. Sam is clearly in the half of bloody death. Potential second round match up with Safarova is dangerous.

(1)Stosur v Yakimova
Benesova V Safarova
Ivanovic v Paszek
Halep v (5)Clijsters

(4)Williams v Scheepers
(wc)Dellacqua v Jovanovski
Q v Czink
Hantuchova v (8)Cibulkova

(6)Jankovic v Suarez Navarro
Zakopalova v Q
Voskoboeva v Q
Pervak v (3)Schiavone

(7)Pavlyuchenkova v Hercog
Q v Kanepi
(wc)Rogowska v Zahlavova Strycova
Peer v (2)Petkovic

You are completely right, of course. Sadly I won't see her domination of Brisbane - barely one bar on a 3G connection here in northern NZ - forget about TV or wireless.
