Ugh, ugly game against a clay-courter. Clijsters will roast her if she plays like that.

Re: LUX R2:Sabbs d. Hercog 76 64

Well done Sabine Some great play in periods but she'l need to get a lot more 1st serves in than today (51%) to stand a chance against Kim. I Hope she can pull it off though.

Sabine wasn't at her best, but she pulled it through.

First QF since Wimbledon for her.

Re: LUX R2:Sabbs d. Hercog 76 64

Nice win for Sabine!
Made some great points, important for her to win such matches and just play after so many injuries etc.!
Was great to see how she came back from 5-6* to 76(1) and some point at BP against her in 2nd set!
Last service game at *5-4 was really impressive!
Polana wasnt that bad today, she played a good match I think, wasnt that easy for Sabine!

Well, she will play better for sure against Kim, she always plays some good matches against the top players

Re: LUX R2:Sabbs d. Hercog 76 64

This was about an up and coming 20 year old future star against an 18 year old power player named Hercog. This match was as thrilling as it can get. Both players were at the top of their game. It was power vs power.

Sabine scored a point in game 4 set 2 on a play where it appeared that Hercog had hit an apparent winner over the head of Lisicki reaching the baseline. Sabine, who is a fabulous retriever ran it down and hit a shot down the line over the head of Hercog for a winner. That was clearly the play of the tournament. It would give Lisicki a 3-1 lead in set 2.

Sabine had to face 4 aces in Hercog's ist service game in game 2, although Hercog was given credit for only 3, but it was really 4. In game 2 set 1 Hercog saved 5 break points taking a 2-0.

Lisicki came back winning the next 3 games including game 5 holding at Love to take a 3-2lead. However, Hercog was about to present more headaches for Lisicki. Lisicki had 2 break points in game 6, but Hercog held to tie the match at 3-3.

Lisicki had problems with DF's in this match totalling around 7, but in game 7 of the ist set Sabine cranked up 2 Aces and 1 unreturned serve to take a 4-3 lead. Both players continued to hold with the match tied at 5-5.

Lisicki saved 4 break points in her next service game before finally succumbing to Hercog.Sabine never looked worried at any point of the match. The undaunted Lisicki broke Hercog at Love to send the match to a tiebreaker. Lisicki wasted no time winning the tiebreaker 7-1, although Hercog gave Lisicki everything she could handle in set 1.

Lisicki took a 2-1 lead in the 2nd set as Hercog coughed up 2 DF's in the 3rd game. The rest of the match each player held serve. Both players played beautifully in a match that was more like a title match.

Re: LUX R2:Sabbs d. Hercog 76 64

How the hell is Polona a clay courter? She has quite bad movement and point construction, but a great serve + forehand. First time seeing her play, so maybe today was unortodox play, but she looked pretty much like a grass specialist.

Solid play from Biene. We'll see what Clijsters has to offer.
