Sabine's BFF on tour

Recently Jarka (Jarmila Groth) wrote this for WTA blog.

Quote:
...A few days ago on Twitter I congratulated Sabine Lisicki on her first round win in Auckland. I really like Twitter. It's a lot of fun. You can write things that are just going through your brain and read other people's tweets, and fans can find out what you do during the day too. I ask my fans if they like my dresses, my website, and things about them too, like what their favorite movies are. My fans are always very helpful! I hope I can reach out to more of them with it.

You can also communicate with other players on Twitter. Sabine has always been one of my best friends on the WTA - I call her Sunshine because she's always smiling, and so she makes me smile. Some of my other friends on the tour are Zakopalova, Cirstea... Anyway, unfortunately Sabine lost today, in three sets to Yanina Wickmayer, which is too bad for her. I hope she can come back to where she belongs in the rankings. Wickmayer is very tough though.

Goodnight... and check out my Twitter at http://twitter.com/Jarka_Groth!

Re: Sabine's BFF on tour

I support 'Jarka' too and started to follow her on twitter. She is Australian I have to support the Aussie players.. she's a good friend of Sabine's so this makes me more interested in her matches too.

Re: Sabine's BFF on tour

Funny, I was thinking about this topic recently, so may as well add to this thread. I too was curious to know who Sabine regarded as her best friends on the Tour.

I would have imagined somebody as adorable as Sabine would be friends with most girls on the Tour!! But you never know!!

However, as well as Jarmila above, who else is she best friends with?

I believe Tamira Paszek is one, I've seen tweets between them.

From a couple of Youtube clips, possibly Sorana Cirstea? They seemed to be hanging about together at the pre-Wimbledon party.

Sabine has mentioned Marion Bartoli as a good friend, & their hug at the net after their Wimbledon clash would suggest so.

And, of course, presumably Sam.

Anyone else?

Re: Sabine's BFF on tour

Sabine is also good friends with fellow Germans Julia Goerges and Andrea Petkovic due to the Fed Cup, but her BFF certainly seems to be Jarka. I am hoping they will play doubles together one day, although I guess Sabs has a good thing going with Sam right now. I've told Jarka a couple of times on twitter I'd like to see them play together and she replied once that she'd like to one day.

Re: Sabine's BFF on tour

Sabine just might be one of those people who ALWAYS can make a friend, which is so great for the girls on tour.

Next stop: Roland Garros

Ana ('08 RG), Serena (21), Venus (7), Petra (2), Angie ('16 AO)
Vika (2), Sveta (2), Simona, Garbi, Ka. Pliskova
Kim (4), Mahree (2), Monica (9), Dokic, Sandrine, Jie

Re: Sabine's BFF on tour

Sunshine is a very fitting nickname for Sabine!

Re: Sabine's BFF on tour

A certain Petkorazzi was apparently watching the end of Sabine's match on TV after her own practice at her upcoming tournament.

Re: Sabine's BFF on tour

Following on from the previous post, Andrea tweeted Sabine to wish her luck vs. Serena (alas to no avail )

But a characteristically nice move by Petko. After watching Sab's victory vs. Radwanska, I though she might do.

Re: Sabine's BFF on tour

Reading an interview with a then 18yr old Sabine, she mentioned being friends with the Radwanska sisters, having come through juniors with them. Presumably that friendship still stands.

Re: Sabine's BFF on tour

After Sab's victory speech in Texas, guess we can add Aravane Rezai to that list. Avarane confirms this in a YT clip from Oct 2010 that I've seen, when she namechecks Sabine as a BFF. (BTW sorry to read about Aravane's troubles - now I know why she was so emotional about her tough year...another crazy WTA dad!!)

Oh, & Big Red the horse!
