Re: Australian Open 2012

well done Bine! I have to admitt when I was watching 1st set and the 2nd one I didn´t belive she would win... Sabine showed great fighting spirit and I am so happy she´s through!

next up is Sharapova who hasn´t given a chance to anyone so far but hopefully Bine makes it tough for her... Sabine´s in R4 and I think we can consider this like a success... anyway Sab will gain over 200 points into rankings

Re: Australian Open 2012

Well done good win and good fight from her.
Very interesting how the match against Maria will turn out (hate it when my faves play each other...). Maria seemed very strong so far but she didn't really play a strong opponent yet. If Sabine serves well and doesn't make too many mistakes this could be a great match

Re: Australian Open 2012

There's a longer highlight summary of her match on youtube:

given the fact that the UEs usually aren't shown there it was quite impressive for me

Re: Australian Open 2012

Very nice win against Kuznetsova, Sabine!

What a great fight back from 2-6 1-3 down, nun sei artig und leiste keine Gegenwehr vs Sharapova

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

I wondered myself. I think it included "first set", but I didn't get what she was saying.

My first guess was, that she apologized for playing so bad in the first set...

Re: Australian Open 2012

Sabs having a moan at the umpire? Maybe this is her new badass attitude!

Re: Australian Open 2012

Great fight back and great win!

According to her dad, she still has problems to cope with the pressure of being the favourite in the early rounds.
And also that the memorys of losing in the Qualis last year troubled her quite a lot in the first few days.
I`ll post the (german)article in the News-Thread.

Well... against Sharapova she won`t be the favourite, so let`s hope for the best!

At the end of the match? I thought she was complaining about Sveta's "handshake"...

Re: Australian Open 2012

One hears that Sabine sweet-talked the officials into giving her an evening match to avoid the worst of the heat. Good for you, girl! I would imagine Sabs could sweet-talk her way into anything, being the WTA darling that she is! Other players do it, why not her? You're learning Sabs!

Re: Australian Open 2012

It's about time she gets an evening match! and it's a chance to get on centre court and a big TV audience in Australia will watch her. Alot of people still don't know her that well, especially in Australia, and they all know who Maria Sharapova is but alot of them dislike her grunting, so hopefully many will cheer for Sabine!
