Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

Well, I think that's a pretty fair draw. Hantuchova is potentially dangerous, but she has a bad record against Sam and hasn't really been in good form this year as far as I know. Not sure about Erakovic.

I think if Sam is in any sort of physical shape she could win at least a couple of matches here. But then there's always the possibility that she'll play tentatively because she's missed a period of matchplay/training, or that her body simply won't hold up. Please Sammy

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

I'm still expecting Serena and Venus to pull out, in which case Sloane's spot in the draw would have been better. I know that Venus tweeted that they were on their way, but I think that was for the form. Even if they play it's a bit hard to see them being in peak form by the time Sam would have had to play them.

But the draw is what it it. Could be better, could be worse. Hantuchova-Robson-Barthel-Wozniacki is no cakewalk to the final in any case, especially if Sam is underprepared.

Not too worried about her body not holding up if she starts. If she still has any doubts I think she'll pull out before the start of play.

Fantastic pictures, Bertand! Especially because I happened to be there when they were taken....

And to all the forum members, you can be certain that Bertrand is 100% dedicated to capturing the best pics and videos of Sam from a true fan's point of view. It was a pleasure to meet him!

Sam practiced for a short while today, with and without a taped calf muscle. Fingers crossed!!

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

Thanks for the pictures and updates peeps. Hope you both have a great time - Charleston always seems like it's a really nice tournament for some reason

How was Sam moving on court today? Did she look uncomfortable or inhibited at all? I think the fact she had a bit of a hit without the strapping is probably a good sign.

Hantuchova and Erakovic aren't on on Monday, so looks like Sam's first match won't be until Thurdsay.

Re: Clay Court 2013: Sam on the Road to Roland Garros

Thanks for the pics Bertrand, theyre great

Sam looks happy and relaxed. Interesting that she chose to have the taping taken off after a while, I would have thought she'd keep it on for the first practice. Although with bad weather being forecast, I suppose she may not even get a second practice.

@SilverPersian: Barring weather delays I can't imagine they'd schedule 2nd round matches as late as Thursday. They still have another 4 rounds to get through after R2. Or did you mean Thursday your time?

Glad you two got to meet up, Bertrand and Sinclair! Enjoy yourselves
