Re: 2012 US Open: Empire State of Mind
Really disappointing to see her go out first round, I'm guessing that's quite a few rankings points lost?
I guess she wasn't really hard court ready after picking up a few injuries lately but I still expected her to scrape through a few rounds.
I was thinking while watching the match how Sabine always seems to give you a 3 set roller coaster, she never seems to comfortably steamroller her opponents like the top players can in early rounds of tournaments. If she's going to be top 10 and a grand slam contender she's going to have to get more consistent, saving her energy for the later rounds of tournaments, although this is obviously hard given the amount of injuries she seems to regularly pick up, its like she's always trying to regain her form and then another one comes along .
