Good fighting.

Coming down from 3:5 in the third set.

But next time she should make it easier.

well done Sabine and good fight!

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

mmm the match started out high quality i thought, then dellacqua started to make heaps of errors and lisicki made winners
but casey choked at the end...1 point in 3 games

Lucie Safarova, Anna-Lena Groenefeld, Agnieszka Radwanska

This was the first time i'd seen Lisicki, and I was very impressed.

She did 12 aces and won at least the last 8 points. She stayed confident and energetic the whole time and fought very well especially in the 3rd set. Her groundstrokes are very strong, I think one day she will make it to the top 20 at least.

Her post match interview was very nice too, she has a big smile and had a very positive vibe. I really liked what I saw of her!

Bad luck Casey She didn't play badly, she just needs to work on her 2nd serve and cut down the errors, maybe work on a bit of footwork, and she'll be dangerous at the AO again.

Both girls displayed poor play on the important points, but it looks like Sabine played the most important points better . I liked what I saw from her, especially her first serve and forehand.

Bad luck Casey, but she let her opponent back into the match and this is the result.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

This was the first time I'd seen Lisicki and I was also very impressed. I admired her for loads of self-belief and never give up.


Inspiration is for amateurs
