Re: Sabine in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

Well, if she has to meet a top player early I'm actually glad it's Sharapova because she has her partly figured out. I would like her chances a lot less against Vika or Radwanska for example.

Still, pretty tough, I don't think this will be her first QF at a big WTA tournament, maybe the Beijing draw will be a bit kinder.

Re: Sabine in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

Jo, Du hastes aufn Punkt gebracht
No more comments possible, while we have no idea of her form, shape, constitution,feeling, serviceconfidence...to be continued...

Don't believe in coincidences when I watch the draws of the last big WTA tournaments. Well, couldn't resist the following comment about the draw: looks like WTA merciless wants to get one special (so much loved) girl to reach Istanbul at the very last moment!

Want my girls at least date a famous golfer or hockey player, pleeeeze

Re: Sabine in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

Playing against Sharapova shouldn't phase her too much. I don't doubt Bine's ability to get up for that match mentally.

SABINE LISICKI- GENIE BOUCHARD- DARIA GAVRILOVA-

Yes and No Jimmie. She played great against Sharapova twice this summer, however both matches were at her beloved Wimbledon. Sabine looks a different animal on grass than she does on any other surface. Who knows how she'll play in Tokyo, because away from grass courts she's incredibly inconsistent

Re: Sabine in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)



This is what you get when Ranked 31, but lets hope she can get a single win here, will be hard enough.

Traveling up and down the Rankings with
Sabine Lisicki

GGHOF: Errani(12), Kvitova(13), Bouchard(14), Muguruza(15) /S.Williams DQ for life
2016 Race: Azarenka(F), Bencic

Re: Sabine in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

She could have easier draws if she would have played in Quebec/Tashkent/Guangzhou/Seoul

Yes but against Sharapova she at least has the mental side figured out. I can't even remember the last time she played Vika but against her in today's form it would be a total disaster. And we all know how she fared against Radwanska the last time out.

Against Sharapova, she at least has the believe that she knows how to beat her.

Re: Sabine in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

Sabine is out of any prediction. This we know well. She can win playing against the number one ranking and quietly lose against No.300. Out of the grass gets really hard to predict a result. And then there is always the obstacle of the first round and his first approach to the tournament, really disastrous in this season.

Ich wusste dass das kommt, sorry, aber das ist Schwachsinn. Das hätte doch ihr ranking für tokyo nicht geändert

Nein, weil klar war, dass sie bei großen Turnieren ungesetzt ist und somit es schwer werden wird Punkte zu holen. Für Lisicki ist das die allerletzte Chance ihre katstrophale P5-Bilanz in der Rangkingwertung aufzupolieren. Da stehen 2 dicke fette 1 Punkte-Wertungen für die beiden besten P5-Turniere des Jahres drin.

Die letzten 2 Wochen waren Zeit mal ein paar Punkte bei kleinen WTA-Turnieren zu holen, das hat sie eben nicht gemacht. Wenn sie viel Pech hat, ist sie auch in Melbourne ungesetzt und da könnte dann Sharapova sogar in R1 warten.

Re: Sabine in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

well, I won´t talk about Sharapova already, as she has to beat a Qualifier first and that will be hard enough!
On a bad day Sabine can play like sh** to say it simple and could lose to anyone, so I just hope that she is well prepared and able to win that one match at least and then she hopefully is able to play a good match vs Maria but focus is on 1st round now first!!

Re: Sabine in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

Abwarten, gegen die Qualifikantin kann eh schon Endstation sein momentan.

Sie MUSS ein Match gewinnen, dann evtl. gegen Sharapova zu verlieren, das ist keine Schande, nur bitte nicht schon wieder in Runde 1 rausgehen.

Re: Sabine in Asia (Tokyo/Beijing)

She has lost the last 6 matches in a row at a P5-tournament. Last win was in Dubai 2010 against Chan.

Aber die evt. möglichen Punkte, die sie ohne intensives Training nach ihrer Verletzung und NY wahrscheinlich eh nicht gewonnen hätte, wäre sie doch für Tokyo nicht anders gesetzt gewesen, somit auch nicht anders ausgelost worden, also bitte,...drück ich mich so dämlich aus oder willst du mich gerade nicht verstehen?
