In news that could surprise no one, Sam Stosur has admitted that the weight of higher expectations is getting to her.
One can debate the wisdom of hashing this all out in the press-- not for the sake of your opponents (I'm pretty sure Flavia's not sitting in her hotel room hitting refresh on Fox News Australia), but for the sake of avoiding being live bait for journalists. Giving them fresh blood in the water is not going to help you gain confidence, Sam. I'm sure Dinara and Anne K would be happy to talk to you about that.
Sad and yikes. Seriously, a sports psychologist with a decent reputation could make a mint just hanging out around the locker rooms at any WTA tournament.
