Re: 2011 Stuttgart

Good that she plays doubles as well!
Sabine is in good shape, as long as she doesnŽt turn mentally she has all chances to beat Cibulkova, it will depend on her anyway, but weŽll see, Sabine is not really predictable these days, 1st serve percentage should be better than it was today , that is for sure, good luck!

Re: 2011 Stuttgart

Sabine played some really good points against McHale and won quite well She is gaining in confidence, despite giving away cheap points as well. It was entertaining to watch and she was having fun on the court playing for her country. No doubt it will be alot more intense against Domi though but as a fan I definitely am feeling optimistic about her chances.

Re: 2011 Stuttgart

Tough draw came out. She can defeat Cibulkova but it depends on her game and mood. Yesterday she defeated McHale but she played without pressure and we can say that she was mentally ok (Germany was leading 3-0 and already qualified for World Group). She played good but it was not the best. After a long time her dropshots worked and she took risks. She is going to play in her home country so we can see victory for Sabine. If Sabine puts her real game it will be a 3 set match otherwise 2set easy win for Cibulkova. For her doubles match, she is playing with great doubles partner and I hope she will increase her game with playing doubles with Stosur.

I was quite happy with her game against McHale. Some games were a bit loose but she was in control mostly and I think maybe too relaxed or she may have won by a more convincing score. But 6-3, 6-4 still pretty good. Great power on display with ground strokes, good variety with nice lobs and taking pace off ball and set up some points really well. Put it this way she's improved alot from her form a month ago.

Re: 2011 Stuttgart

That's true Also Sabine's mental state was good, she was 4-2 down in the 2nd but didn't look worried and she came back and won 4 games in a row.
