Re: Sabine in Bali 2011

It was sooo nice to finally see Bine smiling that much on court again today!!!
Especially the smiles after her challenges were so cute!!
Missed it so much over the last month!

you put my thoughts in words

her smiles yesterday were even brighter than before, if it took a load of her mind moving on from all the bad experiences last weeks.

Our sunshine is back

Hope she can go through today cause I'm not able to watch her game eg. medina (work is calling) and that she finally will play tomorrow again

Re: Sabine in Bali 2011

So 36 64 04ret. She had better not think of playing again with lower back problems. I didn't see all of the match unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately!) By all accounts AMG was rather bitchy; I think she thought Sabs was laying on the injury a bit. Not how I see it - Sabs tried her best to play through the injury, but lower back is only going to get worse. I know this from personal experience (albeit football not tennis!)

Is that the first time Sabs has actually retired mid match?

It's been a strange bittersweet season!

Re: Sabine in Bali 2011

Bittersweet especially after another sad match like this, but to think where she was in March, to where she is now, she is still comeback player of the year

I think it could be caused by her current level of fitness. I agree with you that it should be a major purpose just to play some matches and have fun on court, with results being only secondary. And actually, the interview she gave "Bild" bothered me more than her matches. But she's ALWAYS ambitious on court and everybody who has seen her match against Zvonareva in Paris knows how she struggles with retiring. Anyway, I guess she had some pretty relaxing days on Bali and maybe she stays a little bit longer on that beautiful piece of earth.

Re: Sabine in Bali 2011

Will be interesting to see whether her back problems started during the match, or when she woke up on the morning of this match. Could the catalyst have been that 203kph serve yesterday? Maybe not immediately, but that it (the effort of serving as powerfully as that) caused a gradual deterioration of her back? It appears she was struggling from the off vs. AMG. We'll see what she says in pressers, Twitter or Facebook. At the very least, she'll blog something on the WTA site.

That's four tournaments on the spin that illness/injury issues have afflicted our girl. Hopefully the end of the season will see her fully recharged for 2012.

A strange old season - 3 titles, Wimbledon fairytale, a good US series...but then illness/injury from China.I wish Sabs could steer clear of injury/illness issues - but maybe that's the way it's going to be for her. Maybe she's more prone to such issues than other players. In which case, to rise this year to finish up 15 in the world from 218 not so long ago is one hell of an effort!! Not in her wildest dreams could Sabine have predicted ending up at No.15.

Re: Sabine in Bali 2011

Ah well......enjoy the party Sabine - believe it's tonight. But stay off the dancefloor! (Actually given the time difference I would imagine the party has taken place...unless Sabs is making it a late night in the fleshpots of Bali!! )

Re: Sabine in Bali 2011

In the wta live scoring app the match for rank three is No longer sceduled. So it seems Sabine isnt going to play today. Well,let's hope so. She should rest and recover.

Re: Sabine in Bali 2011

Poor Dani! I'll bet she was thinking of the beach & not having to play tennis again this season!

Still, a sad but necessary decision by Sabs. The end of the season, why risk further damage to your back? Hopefully the off season will see her fully recharged.

She's due to play a couple of exhibitions in Dec - Bahamas & China (the latter Li Na Homecoming). Apart from that, stay away from tennis & rest up - at least for a little while!
