@sabinelisicki
Didn't play well enough in my singles today. But it's been a good tournament to build on. Going step by step into the right direction!

Had a tough loss in doubles too today. Lost in the 3rd set match tiebreaker... Had a great time in Madrid. Rome is next.

Re: Sabine on Clay 2013

Always a good sign when she's tweeting after a loss. At least she can can get to Rome in good time now to prepare, instead of hanging around in Madrid for doubles.

Re: Sabine on Clay 2013

Looks like she ran into the Dimipova Express, from what I'm reading elsewhere!

Sad to lose two times in one day but she can be proud about her week

after losing singles, (sleepy first set/ better second - but both really nervous and Maria and her box amazingly tensed ) fighting until 6 all in MTB of doubles was the best decision

Roma aspetta!

Re: Sabine on Clay 2013

Damn she couldn't use her chances, Sharapova was really beatable today.

Nonetheless, two great weeks for her, after the post-Memphis layoff spoiled some of her form. Apart from the match against Mattek where she couldn't handle the must-win pressure at her home tourney. But obviously, things will be different now on real outdoor clay. She has never won a match in Rome. Her biggest win on slower outdoor red clay dates back to Berlin 2008, where she beat then #14 Peer. Highest ranked player she beat since then: Amanmuradova (#75) at the 2011 FO. She needs to get to grips with that surface to be seeded in Wimbledon.

From the stats, it didn't look like Pova was really vulnerable

Anyway, a good tournament! Onward.

Re: Sabine on Clay 2013

Seems like this has been Sabine's best clay season so far in her career

Sabine

Maria is simply too good. She leads Head To Head now 5-1

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Re: Sabine on Clay 2013

I think it was a qualifier, but I had trouble following the ceremony to be honest.

They never really showed the board, but I think he said "qualificante!" Then again I heard the same for Julia, so maybe it doesn't mean what I think it means.

Re: Sabine on Clay 2013

Yes. It's a qualifier in 1st round, then Kvitova in 2nd.
