Re: 2012 Dubai

Don't want the get the change-of-coach debate started again but why is her dad/coach not there? He wasn't there in Linz or Dallas either... It's weird. Is he not there at all or just not court-side, and if it's the latter it doesn't make sense either.

Re: 2012 Dubai

I didn't see the match (thank God) but heard all about it. 50 UE? Ball bashing? Bad first serve. And crying on court. JFC. Girl, this will be the last time I say: hire a fucking coach. See a shrink, I dunno-- just do something. Or watch your ranking plummet. Soooo frustrating.

And if she blames this loss on being sick again, that still changes nothing. Clearly something is not right in her training regime if she keeps getting injured or sick all the time. [/tough love]

It is still the virus from Paris, I think. Not again, nothing new. Now she has two weeks (?) to recover and then we will see. She was moving bad on court, it seems to me (someone disagree on that?) + an opponent without many unforced errors.

But you are right, she must be 100% healthy for a longer period. No wonder that she has no constancy in her play.

I just read on twitter that she slipped and may have hurt her ankle in the first set. That may explain the bad movement.

Re: 2012 Dubai

Oh yes that too. It didn't look so bad to me, but maybe she was afraid because of her past with the injury?

Hmm Sabine, your fans have to suffer a lot

Re: 2012 Dubai

Terrible match from Sabine!
I guess that her injury isnīt that serious, I mean, she wouldnīt risk another serious ankle injury anyway and she didnīt even call the trainer, so it canīt be too serious IMO.
I think her virus still affects her as well, I just was able to watch it a bit, I mean, I hope that sth (some little thing) was wrong actually as this would explain at least some things.

Bad movement and over 40 UEs in 15 games, that must be one of the worst matches of her ever, especially as she made so many cheap errors, right after her serve, sometimes she just tried then to hit the ball back with much spin to keep herself in the rallies but whenever she played with more power she made an error again.
Radwanska had to do nothing to win today.

Positive thing is that she beat Benesova here and got some nice points.
Now she should recover and then prepare for IW and Miami, to be 100% fit there ( should be possible if there isnīt any new injury) and then she can only get better again with playing matches and with some wins.

This isnīt a new situation for Sabine, she obviously isnīt able to play on a consistent level for a whole season ( due to different reasons) and this is sth which she has to work on obviously. No need to mention that a Plan B would help her as well, she just is too easy to beat once her "normal" game doesnt work.

But as always when it is about Sabine, health is most important for her and she will have some better results again in future for sure, just in doubt yet if she can avoid those heavy upīs and downīs in her game in future as lately she obviously wasnīt playing like a world no.13 for most of the time.

Serious or not, it hurt and was difficult to handle for her with that past in her mind.

I didn't see the match, but for those who did: do you think the ankle may have a lot to do with her state of mind during the match? Like, maybe she was worrying about it so much it affected her game?

Re: 2012 Dubai

was obviously not a mental problem that affected her game today but really physical probs, slow movements, low energy, weakness from the leggs, typical viruslike symptoms (not being a doctor) so sorry for her

Re: 2012 Dubai

she looked tired and was coughing but I couldnīt see any problem with her ankle, IMO she just didnīt feel 100% fit and was moving worse bc of that and later got frustrated obviously as she wasnīt satisfied at all with her performance (when she started to cry).
But I donīt know obviously, could be wrong, but didnīt seem like anything serious as her mother didnīt look that sad or worrying or anything and she didnīt receive any treatment.

We should hope so, I guess. She seemed so powerless today. Predictably, in livescoring they called her a BBB again, but she didn't bash any balls today. Her game was so slow and still most balls didn't make it over the net or into the court.

That scene didn't look that serious at all and it only came close to the end of the 1st set iirc. She didn't slip, she just stopped to suddenly (because of bad movement).

I don't think so. At least, that can't be the only reason. She moved badly from the beginning and struggled with her serve from the first point played. So.

Re: 2012 Dubai

Boys and Girls, Sabine just lost to Radwanska, which is a top 10 player after all, still raising in the Rankings.

A Win wasnt very likely at all, Sabines form just isnt good at the moment.
Every Lisicki Fan knows what he signed for following her, its not easy sometimes.

only the scoreline should have been different, but in the end it stays just a loss.

Indian Wells up next, fingers crossed for some Wins and needed points there.
