Sabine at the Australian Open

Draw released, here is her bracket:

Code:
Serena Williams USA (1) v Urszula Radwanska POL  
Petra Kvitova CZE v Jill Craybas USA             

Qualifier v Andrea Petkovic GER  
Ayumi Morita JPN v Carla Suarez Navarro ESP (32)            

Sabine Lisicki GER (21) v Petra Martic CRO        
Varvara Lepchenko USA v Alberta Brianti ITA             

Kristina Barrois GER v Akgul Amanmuradova UZB   
Qualifier v Samantha Stosur AUS (13)
1R: Martic
2R: Lepchenko/Brianti
3R: Stosur
4R: Williams

Personally I really like this draw. Yeah Serena in 4th round is bad but she should (if she plays to near her potential) reach the 4R. First two matches should be comfortable enough, Stosur is in horrendous form, and then she would set up a clash with Serena. Made the 2nd round in 2009, a chance to gain some points.

Good luck!

yes she did
like her draw too
3rd round is a must
4th round should be the goal

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Sabine at the Australian Open

I think she can make it to the 4th round, and i hope Serena is in bad form and Sabine can dominate!




Maria Sharapova + Jelena Dokic + Sabine Lisicki + Vania King + Julia Goerges + Victoria Duval

Re: Sabine at the Australian Open

I'm off to Melbourne tomorrow arvo, I'll be sure to catch her matches and hopefully take lots of pics and maybe a few videos. Doubt I'll be able to get on the net though so you'll have to wait for it, not that there won't be tons of pics and reports by then!

Good luck.
