Re: Sabine's Hard Court Spring 2013

Well, in the end all that matters are wins and points.

2 withdrawals (one got her a zero pointer) and 1 retirement because of illness aren't helping and it has become a pattern of her to withdraw from tournaments very often.
There is obviously something not working like it should, if she really is that ill all the time, which i doubt actually.
It needs to stop or she will bounce around outside top 40 forever.

Those are FACTS


Miami coming up, so since she didn't score any points, even lost some in IW, Sabine will be unseeded.

Extremely important tournament, there and in Charleston she has a fair amount of points to defend, without them and a few more, seeding for FO and Wimbledon is pretty much out of reach.

If she can make a run at those two tournaments, she has done everything right.
A longer break normally destroys her form and on top 1R could be a high ranked opponent.

So outlook is rather grim i would say unless Ricardo has worked on her startup form and she will play like we know she can from day one in Miami.

Re: Sabine's Hard Court Spring 2013

I think that's maybe the most disappointing thing about the IW withdrawal - it was a chance, no matter how slight (given her record there), to pick up some points to maybe pick up a seeding and also "protect" against any points lost in Miami or Charleston....just have to hope for favourable draws and that, as you say, Sanchez has done some good work with her in this off time. Would be a real shame if it became virtually impossible for her to be seeded at Wimbledon

What lesson was this? I don't remember any drama.

Re: Sabine's Hard Court Spring 2013

she said she had a stalker once...

Nevertheless, updates on FB, Twitter or her HP about playing or not playing a tournament wouldn't hurt. Thats the actual purpose of those.

Re: Sabine's Hard Court Spring 2013

Lisicki hasn't won a match in Indian Wells since 2008 She won more matches in Miami so far, so I hope she gets a good draw to win two or three matches.

Re: Sabine's Hard Court Spring 2013

I wan't her to have a 15-32 seed in R2 or R3, I don't see one of them completely destroying her apart from Cirstea so yeah, hopefully nice draw to defend the points! Although I think I'm the only one that believes that Bine perform on Clay just as well as Grass so i'm hopeful for next couple of months

Re: Sabine's Hard Court Spring 2013

I'm sure the correct sabine in miami what can tear. all the others have now been expended in india total wells and she prepared perfectly. She was formerly much better in Miami than in california. That's right in front of their front door. Have the feeling that this year it a mega sabine year is!

Bine letting us know how much she hates packing her bags again. Doesn't she usually base herself at home for Miami? Maybe trying something different this year.

Maybe she was aware #nicemen would be queuing up around the block to help. (or y'know, just a legitimate blonde moment)
