Re: Pattaya R1: Sabine Lisicki def. Akgul Amanmuradova 6:0 ret.
I don't want to beat a woman when she's down but Akgul just keeps letting herself down.
Sabine is 5'10 and has one of the best first serves in the game.
Akgul is 6'3 and serves like she's 5'3 at times.
I hope she gets better health wise but I really don't know what to say.
She plays doubles but she still has choppy and heavy hands at net but she seems to play her best tennis when moving forward.
I've seen her deacclerate some awful shots when she's at the back of the court.
Perhaps she needs a steady doubles partner.
