Re: Sabine on Clay 2013

It was the right mixture between power shots and tactical shots. She was choosing the right shots instinctively. And she was mentally so strong because she is believing in herself. What a great appearance at her home tournament. She was so happy.

Re: Sabine on Clay 2013

Good match.
She played smart most of the time and Jankovics low power seemed to help her construct points.
On the mental side, this match was awfull. Wasted tons of setpoints, serve was missing when it was needed.
She needs to get that sorted and play like today more often.

Re: Sabine on Clay 2013

wow, great win for Sabine, didn´t expect that although I knew it that she could beat JJ on a good way.
I couldn´t follow much but as Ziva said, mentally she had some huge problems again, *53 lead but immediately gets broken, tons of wasted SPs at 54* etc. but most important was that she still won it, hope that gives her some confidence back and that this wasn´t just one of her random good matches, she needs more of those and hopefully we´ll see it, anyway, congrats again for today, well done!!!!!

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 24 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten three top 5 players en route to her 24 titles (#4 Radwanska, #4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

This update was pigeonpowered by Aga Radwanska and fake MTO.

Re: Sabine on Clay 2013

Biggest win since she beat Sharapova at Wimbledon.

She wasn't that bad in Charleston after her illness layoff and she played great in Stuttgart in 2009/2011. Still, that performance was a bit unexpected. Hopefully Stuttgart will be a confidence booster as two years ago.

Pretty irrelevant if you win those matches. That's the difference to players who regulary mess up their matches like Julia.

yeah if you win all is fine of course, but Sabine isn't more stable than Julia, they are both headcases at times.
Sabine failed mentally in a few big matches, like vs Kerber or Wozniacki. Which did hurt her confidence a lot.
On the other hand, sometimes she has no problems with that.

There is no balance atm.

She has to sort that out somehow in the future.
