Re: US Open Series 2011 | Stanford

Can't complain about Sabine's run since the FO and we'll get a good idea as to the level of her improvement v a top opponent in the semis.

Title in Birmingham, SF in Wimbledon, SF (or even more) in Stanford, great to see that Sabine finally found some consistency, I hope that she will continue like that, her big first serve really helps her when her game isnt working that great like today from time to time, now against Serena or Sharapova, a match against Serena would be nice for a change

well done anyway

There`s not much to add.
If she doesn`t tense up, she can do some damage to Serena.
Auf geht`s Sabine !

Re: US Open Series 2011 | Stanford

Sign of a good player that she can pull a match out even when not at her best. Well played Sabine!

Re: US Open Series 2011 | Stanford

Wow, she's playing the 1st time against Serena Williams now.

It should be great experience for her, regardless of the outcome.

But no ESP coverage and at 4 am CET

Re: US Open Series 2011 | Stanford

yeah, unlucky that she it is at 4am German time again
We´ll see what she can do against Serena, Shrapova was too bad, I think that Sabine will be a better test for Serena but depends, sometimes Sabine wants too much and then her game doesn´t work at all and she can lose 16 16

One thing is for sure, Sabine needs a high 1st serve percentage, Serena will kill those 2nd serve of Sabine (but we still can hope for some UEs at least there )

San Diego draw looks pretty good as well btw

I don't know, but for me this draw is terrible! In her quarter is Cibulkova, she shows that has form, SF in Stanford too... later in QF Vera... Possible repeat from RG or from her match vs Aga in QF...

Re: US Open Series 2011 | Stanford

As expected. Sabine simply has too much power for Aga.

Sabine`s killer serve and forehand will be very dangerous for Serena. I say Sabine wins in 3!

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Re: US Open Series 2011 | Stanford

Man, Serena is out for blood at this tourney. I was happy with Kiri battling hard and dragging her ass to 3 sets and I hope Bine can make an even better showing. I'm not expecting the upset because Killer Ree is back and I don't see anyone who could threaten her when she plays well. But lots of luck to Bine and I hope she can play her best tennis!

well, first rounds are OK, qualifier in 1st round, then Date Krumm or Dulko, then probably Cibulkova, who is in good shape but definitely beatable and I mean, I don´t expect Sabine to reach the SF in all of her tournaments, 2 or 3 wins would be fine and if she reached more, even better
