Pattaya QF: Sabine Lisicki def. Marina Erakovic 5-7 6-3 6-2

First SF in ages. Since Dallas 2011 I think. (Not including Bali, which let's be honest she only beat Hantuchova to make the 'semis'



Also she won a match from a set down! Normally she loses from a set up.

Was worried, from 5-5 in the first set she was broken twice having not faced BPs all match up until then. But then at 7-5 *1-0 Erakovic double faulted twice and never really got any momentum on serve again.

She may just be beating lower ranked players, but it sure beats losing to them.

Maria Sharapova
Sabine Lisicki - Victoria Azarenka - Nastya Pavyuchenkova
Yanina Wickmayer - Laura Robson - Aga Radwanska - KiKi Mladenovic - Angelique Kerber
Simona Halep - Heather Watson - Julia Goerges - Kimiko Date Krumm - Lucie Safarova - Nadia Petrova

As a fan of Sabine it is an encouraging signal to see her prevail after losing the first set.

Self belief. That's what she needs. She had been working her butt off over the off season. Brisbane and the Woz match told me that and gave me a lot of hope. Azarenka beat her in straights and we know what happened in AO, yet, I believe she can be superior to both Azarenka and Sharapova.

So build up from these smaller events patiently. Sabine needs to know she is better than her opponent, keep her focus and stay calm in the battle trenches when it isn't going her way.

I'm optimistic Sanchez will be Sabine's making. I don't want her to be brilliant once in a while but ultimately broken.

I so much want to see her become the player she is meant to be.

Beating only scrubs on her way to the SF and guess what, the next one is waiting with Bratchikova

That must be the biggest cake draw ever

1st round: Malek
2nd round: Panova
QF: Erakovic
SF: Bratchikova

And accidentally continue taking something that is not a PED because WADA couldn't bother to inform their athletes in a proper fashion simply does not warrant a harsher punishment.

Erakovic is a decent player but the rest looks like Bogota's field
