Sam Stosur unappreciation thread


Stosur comfortably through to the round of 16.
Rafa also through, only dropped 1 game and looking like a matchup with Raonic in the quarters


Thiem won't have to worry about Goffin who retired against Zeballos. Zeballos has been in very good form this year though. Should be some good matches coming up. This is assuming Thiem beats Johnson (he's two sets up atm).
I'm hoping for Nadal to meet him in the Quarters.

I also reckon young Ostapenko will beat Stosur next match. She's in hot form.


Thiem and Rafa can only meet in the semis.
Thiem has to get past Novak and Rafa past Raonic


Right you are. Long way to go yet. I don't see Nadal having an issue getting past Raonic on clay. Bautista Agut next up will be tougher


Novak down 2 sets to 1


Rafa into the semis 6-2, 2-0 and then his opponent pulled the pin.
Thiem wins the first set tie break over Novak


Thiem up 2 sets now on Djoko. Come on Thiem!


6-0 in the third to take the match for Dom. Backhand down the line on match point was awesome. I reckon he'll trouble Rafa next match, both in very good form.

Nadal moves to 2nd in the rankings off the back of today's results.


Saw Thiem play Thompson at the Ausopen, the power the kid generates has to be seen live to be believed. He will have the game on his racket vs Rafa, I can't remember being this interested in a french open match up!


While this happens Wawrinka stealthily sneaks into the semi-finals - Will be super-competitive if he makes the final.


The Serb is struggling.


I decided to watch Ostapenko after you mentioned her. Wowee I've found myself a new favourite on the females side.
Haven't had a favourite female since Anke Huber :smile:
Not sure if she can win with that many unforced errors still in her game, but if she's on there's nothing stopping her.


Yeah I think she'll get those unforced errors out of her game as she matures as a player. She turned 20 today!

I liked Anke Huber more for her name than as a player :slight_smile:

Bacsinszky will be tough, she always performs well at RG. I'll try to catch some of that game today


She did it in 3 sets. Great match, gee she's good to watch. I can't see her winning the final though, even tougher opponents coming up, and she hasn't even won a WTA tour yet


There was a game in the second set, where she just cracked 4 absolute clean winners to break Bacsinczy to love.
I don't think I've seen anything like that.
I'll be cheering come Saturday


Ostapenko beat Stosur in the 4th round - Stosur tends to lose to eventual winners of GT's in the earlier rounds.

Wawrinka runs away from Murray in the 5th set to enter the final of the Men's.


Rafa gives Thiem a lesson and a half. Absolutely dismantled him in straight sets


One of the better women's matches I've watched I reckon.

Ostapenko is fkn impressive, she caught me eye at the Aus open against pliskova and she's kicking on.


A set down
3-0 and 40-30 down second set and she kicks into gear.
4-6, 6-4, 6-3


Super impressive win. Gee she's so likable. I look forward to watching her for years to come.
