Re: 2012 ASB Classic

We´ll see, Sabine didn´t play much since the US Open and her form wasn´t that great in Bali as well + back injury + China story etc.
She surely needs a few matches to get into some rhythm again and Sydney is even tougher, so it would be great if she could win some matches here already to get some confidence back for Melbourne!
Razzano can be tough but she should be beatable, a match against Dokic would be for sure interesting with many great points and awful errors but could also meet Barthel as u never know with Dokic!

But as I said, most important that she gets a few wins here and eary defeat here wouldn´t be ideal at all for her upcoming tournaments!

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

What a mess. Just gotta hope she gets a few wins under her belt heading into Sydney-Melbourne. Auf geht's and all, Sabine.

Solid win

2nd round against Mona Barthel, who has beaten Dokic in 2 sets. Could be a tough match.

It is important that it breaks despite concentration, Sabine won first match of the year
Good luck again Mona .

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

Good start for Sabine!
No consistency in her game yet, especially on serve but that isn´t surprising, she just need matches now to get some rhythm again!
Good that she was able to win it in two and that was able to serve it out at *54 two times, 1st serve worked quite well in 2nd set it seems!
Now against Barthel, should be another two sets win for Sabine! Mona isn´t a bad player but often plays a bit too defensive, especially on her fh side, Sabine should and probably will take advantage of that!

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

I didn't see the match but I heard the serve wasn't great. But a win's a win right? GL Sabine!

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

Puhh hab ganze Zeit an das Match gedacht, konnte leider nicht sehen wie es gelaufen ist und hab deswegen ganz nervös gerade eben erst hier rein geschaut. Gewonnen!

It's great to start with a win. I'm very relieved because it was the first match in 2012.

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

I only saw the 2nd set, her game seemed a bit rusty in the beginning (especially the serve with only about 40% first serves and 7 DFs) but I think it got a lot better toward the end.

In the end I`m just glad, that she has her first win this season!

Really looking forward to her match against Mona now, should be interesting!

I'm so happy that a wasn't able to watch it, when I read this
But a win is a win and next game will be better, I suppose

GO ON, Sabine
