Charleston: Sam Does It. Metaphorically.
Posted by gauloises1 on April 19, 2010
Congratulations to Samantha Stosur, who won her second (and biggest) career title at the Family Circle Cup this weekend. I’m afraid I didn’t see any of it, but it doesn’t seem like I missed too much, after Daniela Hantuchova and Caroline Wozniacki were both forced to retire during the semifinals.
Wozniacki’s injury in particular does not sound good, in any sense. Hopefully it won’t set her back too much.
Anyway, Stosur demonstrated that she was not in the final by chance by putting the absolute smackdown on Vera Zvonareva, 60 63. I’ve hastily skimmed through and it seems like it was a ruthless performance by Sam and a reminder of just how dominant her game can be when she’s got it all together. Vera could do absolutely nothing to take control of the match, which is a shame for her, but good for us, because it brings the giggles.
Cool, calm and collected.
… Really not.

It was Sam’s show, though, despite Vera’s best efforts to steal it, and well done to her. She had Lyme disease, you know.
She’s in there somewhere.
