Jarka outclassed by Oprandi, but Sam beat Voegele 6-0 6-4 to level. Strange match, Sam bagelled the first set, went down a double break in the second, then reeled off six of the next seven games for the win. Guess a bit of a wobble was to be expected given how little she's played lately. Pretty amazing performance against an in-form opponent. If she can just do the same with Oprandi, Case and Ash should have a good chance of sealing the win in doubles.
Hopefully Sam won't have to join Casey in final doubles.
Zero chance of that I think. Atm Sam is probably the least in-form doubles player in the team, but even if that wasn't the case it would be sheer madness to let her play 3 matches in one day when she's recovering from a calf injury. Even 2 matches is tempting fate a bit IMO, but fortunately the first match was short and sweet.
