As promised, Sam practiced in Sydney today, taking some time mid-practice to sign autographs and take pictures. First time I've ever seen a player take the time mid-practice. Awfully nice of her.
Nothing of note to report, really, other than that they were working on her shitty backhand for a good 45 minutes (not that this picture backs me up). I can't be sure but it seemed like they were working on, tactically, when to hit the slice and when to hit the two-hander.
