Both Sam and A-Rod are donating $100 for every ace they serve this week in Brisbane to benefit the victims of the floods that are affecting tens of thousands in Sam's homestate of Queensland.
Sam knows floods. When she was six a flood destroyed her family's home and business on the Gold Coast. They had to relocate to Adelaide.
“We lost everything, photos, furniture, all our possessions apart from what we were wearing. It could have been a lot worse as my younger brother’s cot was completely submerged in water but he was in my parent’s bed that night. I also remember Daniel diving for my mum’s wedding ring which she lost in the water – he found it."
Huge props to both. You know what would be even huger? If everyone else in the draw would just sit back and let them get aced and Andy and Sam won the tournament without ever having to see a serve returned.
Just throwin' it out there. Or how about a Hit 4 Queensland? Brainstorming and the like.
