  • Leanne Wylie

    Go Sam, show the tennis world what you are made of, with your explosive serve and ground strokes. You will win tonight, and every Australian back home is proud of your achievement over the past fortnight. GO SAM, GO SAM.

  • Julia.M

    Hi Sam, it’s just so brilliant having an Aussie woman in a Grand Slam Final. Well done for getting there. It was a great trip, especially beating the unstoppable Serena. There’s no doubt you can win many a Grand Slam.
    But tonight, I think, Francesca seemed to really want it, in every fibre of her being! There was such a passion, a fierce/angry determination, a killer instinct. That seemed to be what won the match for her. When things went bad for her she appeared to recover through sheer angry energy chasing and attacking the ball with such ferocity!
    Is it possible you can harness this sort of mental energy for the final in Wimbledon? I don’t doubt you’ll get there in the first place. Once you’re there GET THAT DAMN TROPHY! You know you WANT IT!

  • Jen

    So proud of all the hard work, dedication and commitment you have done and is now bearing fruit and is inspirational!
    All the very best tonight Sam……Australia is behind you. Regardless of the outcome you are a winner…. but hope to see you holding that trophey high! Sweet!!!

  • Terri Wulff

    Dear Sam, I am so there with you in spirit and I wish you all the VERY best, cause I know that deep in your heart, I know that you can do this. You are an INSPIRATION to us all. All your fans that could not make it to the French Open are there with every serve and every hit that you play. YOU ARE THE BEST SAM, and only the best of your fans know it. NOW GO OUT THERE AND PUT YOU NAME IN LIGHTS.

  • Sonja

    Good luck, Samm. Enjoy the moment and know you have so many of us who are cheering you and already so proud of you here in Naples, FL!!

    You beat the best players in the world this tournament. I think this was a great victory for you and for Aussie tennis. Don't worry about the final, you won in my books when you took down Serena!. Can't wait to see you in Melbourne.

  • ringmezzo3

    Sam,

    You are an amazing tennis player. You do not seem to waste a movement…very spare and tough.
    Kudos and cheers from California !!

  • Bernadette

    Hi Sam. Too bad you lost yerterday, but I think and deeply hope you’ll win here in Paris,in the years to come. I though you were the one who most deserved to win, considering all the great players you defeated to reach the final, but that’s sport, each match is a different one. You were my favourite, because I like your game and your attitude on court. Also, because my grand mother who died very early was born in Australia at Sidney, from an Australian mother and a French father. Her parents died when she was 7 and having no relatives in Australia, she arrived in France at that age. Because of her story, for some members of my family, including me, Australia has always been a mythical country. I remember was so happy when The Olympic Games took place in Sidney! Tennis being my favourite sport, I always feel very interested in Australian players. I also like very much to watch on TV the Australian Open. Australian public is so great, we can feel how much people like sport there. Well best wishes for the tournaments to come and will enjoy seeing you here in Paris next year!

  • David Lochlin

    Sam, You've done well. You've kicked a lot of arses of late, some bigger than others (hey)! Just keep on going. We love you :-)

  • Diane

    Way to go on the French Open run, Sam. Been following your game closely since last year’s US Open and the improvement in your game and your belief in yourself has been such fun to watch! You’re a breath of FRESH AIR in women’s tennis – from your style of play to your quiet and mature strength, so please, keep it up!

  • Luce

    Good evening Samantha,
    I imagine that could be hard to lose the finale in Roland-Garros. But I have to say that you're an amazing player, and a beautiful woman. I will never forget words of Fransesca about you. Full of respect. I'm a french and young journalist. Following handball, a sport not really famous in Australia. And I looked Roland-Garros just to see you. Never change. You're deeply amazing !
