Quite the dilemma, this match. Do I root for my new love, Sam? Or do I stick to my guns and root for Dani, knowing that a win and a final would make her happy, which is all that I've ever really wanted for her?
Tough call. Katie said I should root for Dani because "she doesn't get a chance to play on center all the time." Not convincing, Katie. And so while I was fighting off hipsters left and right at Record Store Day, I was quietly rooting for Sam, knowing that she needs to build her confidence on clay, you know, seeing as how she actually did well at Roland Garros last year.
So no, I didn't watch the match. But from what I understand, Dani was up 5-2 in the second before she collapsed, Sam started busting forehands to force a tiebreak, which she took easily, 7-2.
What? That was me being positive!
