Wimbledon Women’s Second Round. Fifth Ranked Samantha Stosur Upset By Dutch Woman Arantxa Rus 6-2 0-6 6-4!!

Once again, Australian tennis star Samantha Stosur is unable to rise to the occasion she loses in the second round of Wimbledon to Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands.

Rus defeated Stosur 6-2 0-6 6-4 and she played fearless tennis.  Rus was smart, she attacked Stosur’s weak backhand and she just broke it down.  Stosur hit numerous backhands into the net or long.

Tennis experts and fans have wondered why does Stosur do so poorly at Wimbledon?

Sam has only reached the third round of Wimbledon once in her entire career. Stosur has a huge first serve, excellent second serve, and a big forehand. Stosur also volleys very well but her backhand is weak and her mind is fragile.

A few weeks ago, Stosur lost in the French Open semifinals in a shocking upset to Italian woman Sara Errani. Today, Stosur seemed uncertain on the court she lacked composure and I think she needs to see a sports psychologist. I also believe Stosur needs to develop a better two handed backhand. Stosur’s one handed backhand is excellent she is able to slice and keep the ball low. Why didn’t Stosur use the one handed backhand on the slick grass court?

It looks like the expectations of being a grand slam champion have gotten to Stosur. Stosur won’t admit it, but her poor performances at the Australian Open and Wimbledon championships indicate she doesn’t like being the favourite. The reason Sam won the US Open over Serena Williams last year is nobody expected her to win. Stosur has a terrible record in WTA finals she’s 3-11 in her career.

Stosur has so much potential and a lot of talent but she just fails to play her best tennis when she needs to. It is so sad to see such a talented player end up being just a one slam wonder like Gabriela Sabatini  and Jana Novotna.

Jet Magazine Interview: Actress Gabrielle Union Breaks Her Silence About NBA Star Dwayne Wade Crazy Ex Wife!!!

Think Like A Man star Gabrielle Union is revealing for the first time her relationship with her boyfriend Dwyane Wade‘s ex-wife Siohvaughn…and why Gabby herself chose to keep quiet about those homewrecker rumors (but still fought the court battles against Sioh privately).

We’ve got the first glimpse into Gabby’s upcoming JET magazine cover story about Sioh’s lawsuits and Gabby’s current relationship with her…

In the upcoming April 16th edition of JET Magazine, Ms. Union maintains that she’s still every bit the girl next door she used to be.  Despite the messy divorce her Miami Heat star boyfriend, Dwyane Wade, just tackled…with Gabby getting dragged into the mix as well.  Siohvaughn sued Gabby for being an alleged homewrecker and for allegedly being detrimental to Dwyane & Sioh’s 2 sons’ well being.  Sioh claimed that around the boys, Gabby allegedly used foul language and dressed inappropriately.

Gabby reveals for the first time, in a story title “Crazy Messy Love,” that she didn’t rebut the homewrecking rumors and lawsuit for the sake of the kids.  And that she could related to Siovaughn’s crazy antics since Gabby was “that” girl who attacked her own ex-husband’s new girlfriend as well.

On why she didn’t publicly defend her reputation against rumors she cheated with Dwyane while he was married

“The kids.  For the people that hire me, it’s a non issue.  But at the end of the day, Dwyane’s kids are going to be the ones who really suffer.  They’re 10 and 4 and a half.  They’re old enough to understand the mean things that strangers can say.”

On feeling bullied by her fans who believed she was “the other woman”

“I think people mistook me taking the high road as an admission of guilt.  Dwyane and I made a decision very early to not react to the negativity.  And I kept feeling like the truth would come out.  The problem is, when it did, nobody cared.  What I discovered on social media is that people don’t read the entire story.”

On handling Siohvaughn’s lawsuits alleging Gabby as a homewrecker and detrimental to her kids

“I fought it.  My life is just too easy to track.  So, we were submitting plenty of proof for the times she said I was in Miami.  So, it was like, obviously you’re not telling the truth.  And then the courts dismissed the case.

On her current relationship with Siovaughn

“I’ve never had one.  I wasn’t involved then-because I wasn’t involved with their marriage–and I don’t have one now.”

On contemplating breaking up with Dwyane because of the divorce turmoil

I did a lot of talking with girlfriends and sorting through my feelings about the madness.  This kind of love is a gift.  It’s so consistent.  There’s no way that I would trade it for people who refuse to simply acknowledge the truth.
