2012 ASB Classic

Because I'm bored of the off-season I thought I'd start a topic for Sabine's first tournament of 2012.

Quite a solid player field with Sveta, Flavia, Julia & Peng all in MD. Oh, and it looks like Sabine is the #1 seeded player so here's hoping for a solid run, or another title.

Draw will be available 31st of December. Tournament begins January 2nd.

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

Dunno if I should say...I would prefer that she was NOT top seed - too much expectation for my liking.

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

As soon as I saw that I thought the same. But it's an international, and she's got nothing to defend. So here's hoping she plays all her matches relaxed.

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

This is slightly off-topic but her hair has gotten sooooo long. That's a very Mary Pierce-esque braid she has going there.

Re: 2012 ASB Classic

Oh, interesting (and somewhat sad) draw from a german perspective!
Could be a 2nd round match against Mona and then third round against Angie or Jule!

edit: @mk27 it seems you were faster than me!
