On a personal note it's hard to remain quite such a big fan of someone who doesn't play in your local tournament year after year when they could play but continually get sick or skip it. Oh well I have a cure for that emotional pain this year (I remember the disappointment of twice hoping to go watch Bine and her twice withdrawing)- Genie ... but I really hope for Bines sake that she won't pay the price for lack of matches. We all have the bad memories of the loss to Wozniacki in '13. I may not be as big a fan of her as I was but I still really hope for her to win at least one trophy this year.
Ok Sabine, so you're in Melbourne already... It's time to go out with your team & order a nice big Chinese meal or something. If you're going to get sick then let's get it out of the way now & not in the middle of the tournament.
Time to start cooking for yourself Sabine, or get someone from your team to do it!
I was really confident that Sabine was going to get through this year without any health issues but then she pulls out of Brisbane on January 1st It's not looking good. At least this one wasn't anything serious
