Re: US Open 2011

Draw doesn't matter for Sabine.

If her serve is clicking, her opponent takes a licking.
If her serve is MIA, then her opponent will celebrate.

This is true for 99% of players. But there is a small elite group who might beat Sabine even if her serve is working. Venus is one of those players.

Venus might be rusty though. For this reason I think Sabine has a good chance.

Re: US Open 2011

GL Sabine!

Sorry Sabs, but if it is Sabine vs. Venus in R2, then I will root for Venus. I have been a fan of Vee for much longer, I am a bigger fan of her, and she doesn't have much time left in her career, where Sabine has plenty of time left

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: US Open 2011

Has Sabs made it to NYC yet, anyone know??

Sorana Cirstea took 2 flights to Pittsburgh & then a 6hr drive (!!! ) to get to NYC...maybe Sabs should have taken the Big Red!!!

Re: US Open 2011

From Sabs, straight from airport to practice, then to hotel.

Alona later today, Venus tomorrow - all being well in today's match.

Not getting much time to adjust to the conditions though. Which worries me. I hope the confidence & form Sabs is carrying to NYC will carry her through both matches.

Looks like a pretty hopeless draw. The Power of Love double will be tough enough and then it's King/Shvedova in R2. They got past them in Wimby, but I'm not sure they can pull it off a second time.

Re: US Open 2011

Solid win for Lisicki. She can't win each and every match 61 62. Now good luck vs. Venus.

Re: US Open 2011

Overall a very solid performance. But she was broken too easily when she served for the match imo. Congrats though

Jelena Jankovic | Maria Sharapova | Sabine Lisicki | Nicole Vaidisova
Venus Williams | Maria Kirilenko | Victoria Azarenka | Madison Keys

Sabine!

Venus up next. Saw a bit of her match yesterday & she didn't look as rusty as I was hoping.

Re: US Open 2011

Good start, was not easy for sure as she just arrived yesrerday but it was solid performance!
1st serve strong as always, but some space to improve over 2nd serve as almost always and a few UEs too much but was important that she won it fast today.
As Nina said, she shouldn´t get broken like that when serving for the match but that wasn´t a big problem today against a player like Bondarenko!

Now great match against Venus, Sabine should be fit enough and got used to the conditions now after her first match!
I just hope the winner goes far in the tournament, hard for me to cheer for one of those two
