Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

Whew. The miniest of wobbles to go to 15-30, but GOAT serving cleared it up.

Sammy gets the "easier" SF. Pav may not be a pushover though. Sam will need to lift her game a tad I think

Great serving towards the end to win phew! Who would have thought Sam would top the group after yesterday really lifted her game towards the end! My guess is that there will be a two thumbs up post on Fb tonight

Yes, she served great, which will help her a lot in the SF. But she is still really struggling quite a bit in her ground game, as she more or less conceded in her post-match interview (it was kind of backhanded insult to Tsveti, saying that she hoped she would go back to playing like her first match after playing not so great yesterday and today). Don't know if she'll get the chance to practice tomorrow before the match (who would she hit against?)

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

^yes re her ground game - good thing some of her shank returns landed in! I suppose it's good that we saw a few glimpses of the Sammy from Osaka late in the second set where she seemed to really get on top of the ball to unload her groundies in the game she broke Pironkova but generally she doesn't seem really at ease out there. Re her hitting partner, I am actually amazed at how well she is playing recently even without regular hitting partner on the road with her - but you are right - who on earth will she practice with tomorrow? maybe she will indeed just be practicing her serves

Ended up checking live scores instead and reading the commentary here

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

Rankings update:

- If Sam reaches the final she will finish the year No 18.
- If Sam wins the final she will finish the year No 17, which will almost guarantee her a Top 16 seed at the Oz Open.

Re: Sammy's Asian Swing 2013

Wow. What a lucky break for Sam that VIP choked away a SF against Pavs. Really is a game changer to avoid Halep to at least the final IMO. Not that I don't think Sam can beat Halep... She can... only if she really ups her ground game though. I really like her chances against Pavs though.

Yeah, Sam lucked out for sure. Her game isn't yet at a point where I'd give her much of a chance against Simona, so it's great that she gets an easier SF to hopefully play herself into form before the final.

Pavs may not be a pushover though. Sam would have to be a pretty clear favorite, but they've both been running a bit hot and cold all tournament, and if Pavs has a hot run while Sam is struggling, she has a big enough game to cause Sam some serious problems.

The challenge for Sam is to keep serving well, and find just the right mix between aggression and safety in her ground game. If she can do that she should pull through I'd say.

Battle of the UEs at the moment. Thankfully Pavs is winning it.

Sam *2-0
