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

I think it might pay to check out whether bookies take bets on match times. I think you could make a tidy sum betting that the matches on the court where Sam's scheduled to play will take at least 50% longer than those on all the other courts.

JJ broken serving for the match. I wouldn't mind half as much if Na Na had broken on the first or even the second BP, instead of about the 17th

just broke back. This shit is going to go on forever.

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

JJ to serve for the match again, but unless Na helps her out I'm pretty sure it'll go to a TB.

If this goes to a third set it's entirely possible that Vika, who was scheduled to play at the same time as Sam, will be on court before this match is even over

There has been 29 breakpoints in the match. Fair chance this shit fest will go to three sets.

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

Na Na pretty much gave up in the end.

But on the face of it Vinci-Halep and Chardy-Granollers don't strike me as matches where one of the players is just going to roll over the other in 45 mins, so unless they switch Sam-Petra to an outside court, I can't see them playing much earlier than about 7 pm local time. As long as they get on by then and it stays dry that's okay for me, but it sucks for you guys obviously.

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

On and on and on it goes

Granollers has gone and done an Oudin: went to sleep for the whole second set and half the third, before deciding he fancied his chances of winning the match after all. Sharapova's sheduled to go on court at 7.30, and it's starting to look as if she could start play before Sam and Petra.

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

Finally!

Now all we need is for it to stay dry for the next couple of hours. Not too much to ask is it?

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

I was stressed all through that Rafa/Ernie match I was ready to sleep right after.. and now I have to watch Sam/Petra. This could be a mess. Or it could be fun.

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

I really don't know what to expect. From what I've seen of today's play, the courts are pretty dead, although it is possible to hit winners if you can take the ball cleanly. I'm afraid Sam's kicker is not going to be very effective, and that it will just sit up for Petra to put it away. I hope I'm wrong.
