Re: US Open 2011

Sabine plays Falconi next, who beat Cibulkova, who killed herself with a terrible performance!

I can´t see Sabine losing at all, Falconi is a consistent player but without weapons at all, average serve, Sabine will win in 2 sets unless she makes +50 UEs or sth

Re: US Open 2011

Falconi is solid, but Sabine should take this match in straight sets.

Re: US Open 2011

If Sabine loses to Falconi, she needs to commit seppuku. I'm gonna get flak for this, but there's just no other way of putting it.

Re: US Open 2011

Venus
But now Sabs has a really good draw
And Vera Z wasn't great today so a good chance for Sabine to go even further if she can get past Falconi

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

Wow ... total surprise, I would not in my life expect this turn of events... I feel a little sorry for Venus

Now against Falconi - she just pushed every ball vs Cibulkova who spoiled a looot of balls... So, all is in Sabine's hands in this match - Keep going!

Andrea Petkovic * Jana Cepelova * Petra Cetkovska * Jovana Jaksic * Karolina Pliskova * Svetlana Kuznetsova * Yvonne Meusburger * Francesca Schiavone

Re: US Open 2011

I'm still sad that we didn't get to see the match against Venus but at least Sabine is in the next round now. From what I saw from Falconi she should definitely win that match.

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

Re: US Open 2011

Really should win R3 and another chance probably against Zvonareva who she's been close to beating but lost under unfortunate circumstances. Big chances for Sabine in New York, really hopes she takes them!

Re: US Open 2011

I like her chances of making the QF. Sounds like Sabine is the only one who can beat herself when she plays Falconi. Plus, Bepa wasn't playing that great yesterday. Went to 3 sets against K Bond who Sabine beat in straights in Dallas no?

Re: US Open 2011

The "problem" is that Vera never plays great against Sabine, she played quite bad at RG and San Diego, well, just average like her whole season is but Sabine just couldn´t take advantage of it as she didn´t make the important points although she had all chances to win, I hope this changes this time, but she has to beat Falconi first anyway!

I'm not too upset about this loss, to be honest. They've lost to the Power of Love before and King/Shvedova were waiting in the next round anyway and I don't think they would have beaten them this time around. They're just not balanced enough to be a top-level double.

Re: US Open 2011


Was there a live stream/tv broadcast? Would really love to watch that match, even though they lost....
