Re: 2012 ASB Classic

Wasn't the best performance but that's not surprising and straight sets win is acceptable. Pretty tough quarter, Sabine will need to step it up to win this title and I'm sure she will Never seen Barthel play before, I expect another straight sets win for Bine.

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

She's playing doubles with Peng? How random. Wonder if they'll play together at AO as well.

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

This doubles are preparation for AO, to have as many matches as posible under Sabine's belt. Didn't expect she could win so easily with Peng against good doubles players like Vinci and Errani. Congrats!

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

It didn't seem the most convincing win, her serve isn't what it should be and Kerber is better than Barthel. Remember her US Open run.. But Sabine through to quarter finals, let's hope the No 1 seed steps it up now!

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

If Sabs thought Barthel was tough, Kerber will be tougher - she needs to step it up. Perhaps the better the opponent, the better she'll play. Good though that she had the metal fortitude to step up & win the deciding set.

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

According to the tournament's twitter, Sabine has pulled out of the doubles. Peng lost today so guessing she just wants to head off to Sydney to prepare there.

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

Sabine pulled out of doubles due to lower leg cramp
