Pathetic Benesova. She played just like she looked, a zombie. She could at least pretend she wanted to be there.

Re: Luxemburg R1: [6] Sabine Lisicki (GER) def. Iveta Benesova (CZE) 6:1 6:4

Sabine hit 3 great drop shots today. Two of the drop shots ended games. In game 10 of the final game in set 2, Sabine hit a drop shot to give herself a 30-0 lead, then followed up with an Ace on the next point. Sabine was leading 5-3 in game 9 and had 4 match points, but Benesova was resilent holding in game 9. Sabine was not going to fall apart like she did against Rodionova. Sabine held at Love in game 10 to win in straight sets.

In game one of set one Sabine sent a message to Benesova that her serve was going to be overpowering. Lisicki served 3 Aces in the ist set to win the ist game easily. Sabine would match her own power in game 3 of the ist set by forcing 2 unreturned serves and an Ace to take a 3-0 lead. Lisicki then showed versatility in game 4 by hitting a forehand crosscourt winner to end game 4, giving Sabine a 4-0 lead.

Sabine lead 5-1 going into game 7, with Sabine wasting no time in taking a 40-0 lead in game 7. Benesova tied game 7 at 40-40, but Sabine came back to win the game and the set 6-1.

Lisicki was never broen the entire match. Benesova went 4 straight games in set 2 without being broken, however she was broken in the ist game of the 3rd set,then Sabine consolidated in game 2 set 2 with with 2 Aces holding at Love.

Today's ist set lasted only 20 minutes.

When Sabine is healthy and getting in her ist serve, she can beat anybody. She easily has the talent to be a top 5 player. Her conditioning will be the key to her success.She has already beaten Kuznetsova, Wozniacki,(2) and Venus at Family Circle. Sabine is very entertaining to watch.

Re: Luxemburg R1: [6] Sabine Lisicki (GER) def. Iveta Benesova (CZE) 6:1 6:4

Good performance
Really nice to see that she is often able to play some good tennis, although she barely played over the last weeks..
Serve was impressive today and Benesova hadnt a great day, could have been even easier in 2nd set but never in danger!

But will be really tough for Sabine to stay under the top 32 in ranking, LUX will be her last tournament where she can make points before the AO....and it doesnt look that good!

Sabs Great to see her back and winning matches. Its a pity she will have to play Kim, but it could be a good match.
