But I've enjoyed reading *that* many posts about Sam Stosur :). You being hired as a full-time tennis blogger is very, very well deserved. That sense of humour, that frank writing, that ability to say what you want seemingly without a lack of fear of how people may react - this has all lead to very interesting writing. I'm sure you'll do well and hopefully they mean it when they said they'll give you the freedom to cover it however you want to. I found this blog by googling "I stole a food tray from Roland Garros". I stayed here from 2009 onwards because frankly, Forty Deuce is awesome. All the best. And please, never stop writing about a certain charming, headcasey Australian.

So cute. That's all I can say after seeing Dani's smiling picture.

Good excuse to get drunk in the middle of the day, I suppose. I'll just go cry now.

It was pretty amusing when Iveta just starting laughing when they shook hands. Oh, to be a fly on Sam's hat. Or something.

There should be something for her after her very last match in the Fed Cup, no? Man, I'll cry if I see Sam saying goodbye to Stubbsy. Sam/Stubbsy was my favourite doubles pairing like...ever.

I love you for saying that, Curtis. I'm biting my nails with nerves at the moment watching Sam vs Kvitova and reading someone thinking she'll win the match is calming it somewhat :p.

Slava's gorgeous. She looked absolutely amazing last year at the Hopman Cup Ball as well.

What can I say? A little silliness wins me over every time ;). And yes, I lost the fight for Franny's attention to a seal. Sad :(.

No offense meant. It's just that I'm usually too focused on Sam to notice other tennis players so I find it odd when I do notice them.

She looks oddly attractive to me in this picture. Oh, the confusion!

Vera was always really hot. And flannel shirts on a girl? Yum.

Nope, it definitely should have been Sam. She's our girl, after all.

Relating to the "It Gets Better" project - http://www.afterellen.com/people/2010/09/ellen-degeneres-speaks-out-against-bullying. The article itsef isn't that long, it's more of the comments that are important. Most of the LGBT suffer from bullying and abuse at some point of their lives. If the LGBT teens read the stories by us (the people who survived), maybe then they'll hold on. That's why websites like afterellen.com are so important.

I sorta wish Stubbsy was there though. Can you imagine Stubbsy with a sword? Pure awesomeness.

Kimiko. I love that name. And I wish I'll look that good when I'm 40. Regarding Sam, what on earth are you talking about? I don't think she even played. I think she just went to Tokyo to drink some sake and grab some dinner before flying off somewhere else. Classy.

Slava is so cute :). Vania's adorable as well, now that I'm not bitter about last year's USO. At the beginning of the year I had high hopes for Slava after seeing her in the Hopman Cup. My hopes may be wrong for her in singles but it's definitely right for her in doubles ;).

Not beautiful enough? Are you kidding? Bepa is gorgeous and those eyes can kill people (in a good way). Rooting for Bepa to win the USO but knowing Sam's tendency to lose to the eventual champions....we'll see. Lets do this, Bepa :)

I think most of us were like that on the day. The loss was expected but the "YOU ALMOST HAD IT!"-ness of the match makes it so much harder. A stupidly optimistic, jinxing side of me thought she actually had a chance of winning the whole thing. Damn you, jinxing side. But hey, great result from Sam. I know most people weren't actually expecting much from Sam before the tournament started so she at least proved them wrong. She also proved that she can play against quality players like Lena off clay and still win. Absolutely gutted that she lost, especially after her match against Lena but at least the feeling isn't as bad as when she lost the RG final. She didn't have as much chances in the RG match as in this match but the feeling of what could have been was worse. So in comparison to that, this isn't too bad yes? Corgi corgi corgi, oi oi oi!

Being me, I noticed her flirting with Vika before I noticed her flirting with anyone else. Eek.

Never did understand why people said she's emotionless. Even when she's wearing her sunnies she shows tons of emotion. Absolutely love it when she doesn't wear her sunnies though. Gorgeous eyes. And that last pic? Made me giggle uncontrollably :)

I agree with Tim - I was hoping that both players would somehow lose as well. Roddick just annoys me after 2009 Wimbledon and Tipsarevic...well I have a thing against a homophobic misogynist.

Meeting the family already? Didn't know you guys were that serious ;) Anyway, thanks for blogging about Sam so much. It's always awesome to see the family in the pictures. Makes her seem more human and less of "Oh she's just a tennis player".

My condolences to Ana fans. I've never been a fan of hers but seeing a player getting injured when she finally starts to play relatively well again just plain sucks.
