That's right. Warm up that hammer.
While watching Sam practice this evening I met a young woman who had flown down from Seattle for a wedding and extended her stay for the week in order to watch Sam try to win the tournament. A dedicated fan, indeed.
This was her first time seeing Sam live and her excitement was contagious. As Sam whipped forehand after forehand and smashed serve after serve, my Seattle friend just got giddier and giddier. There's just nothing like seeing Sam hit in person. It looks like nothing else on the women's tour.
Papa Stosur in the house. He was being adorable, shagging balls and whatnot. Every once in a while Sam would gesture for a ball and yell "Pop!" which would startle him and he'd drop, like, three balls. Corgi tendencies run in the fam.
More practice vids after the jump.
Volley drills. David was hitting some insane passers. Sam shoots him a bemused look at the end. As oly a Corgi can.
Forehand drills. You know it.
