Here is my Statement:
Sam was on Court 1 at 2pm, just after Federer on the Lenglen. While the Lenglen is public, Court 1 is not (and really is not). Another challenge was the weather: hail, wind, cold, and then intense sun light. Sam practice was vas very intense, sharp and focused. Dave was vocally pushing her which is unusual that way. She played a mini-match and finally answered a quizz on Court at the end.
B.
Note: I don't know if I can renew what did to be in there, but I was there! There is a true story behind these visuals, but I can't make it public.

Here are my pictures:

Bertrand, you are a legend

The practice sounds great, Sammy getting her intensity level up already

Great pics

Btw: I get the feeling from the 3rd and 4th-last pics that Sam knows she's being stalked, but is not sure by who

I feel better knowing we have a Sam Superfan on the job to give us some accurate intel, but knowing Bert, it's going to be done professionally and respectfully. I doubt he will give up his secrets. I hope he can get some practice footage and pics like last year. That was great.
Here is the video of the practice Sinclair, with a big waaave from Paris.

I knew you wouldn't let us down, Bert! Thanks for the video and pics! Great stuff, as usual.

I'm sending all the voodoo I can muster for a good draw....but something tells me that regardless of Sam's draw, she is destined to hoist that trophy this year.

Sam drew Kimiko first up. I'll settle for that

Really? Oh well, better than Serena I guess. Ws hoping for Aga

If Sam reaches the QF I think she has an okay chance of beating Vika anyway. But one round at a time, even Kimiko shouldn't be taken too lightly.

Yeah, it was hard to follow the draw. Should have paid more attention to the numbers, that would have at least shown which quarter she was in.

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

According to the live draw thread Sam is in Maria's quarter. Vika would have been better I think.
