That was a high quality match when we watch her and also sams stats! Sabi saying in post match interview without being asked for "Sam played a fantastic match" and so did Sabine! How great she managed the tension and pressure in the beginning, not givin up her game plan at all when she lost first set due to a srewed up second serve game.
That's Sabine when she's physical in good shape and I guess new coaching works pretty well either. At least she had much more to lose today than her good playing opponent. But she handled the pressure like a boss and however next match ends, I'm absolutely optimistic for the rest of season .. at least draw badluck must end at any point
Just checked the stats, Bine is second for serve speed behind, naturally, Serena. But Sammy is third. They are respectively 120,123,119. (mph) However, Bine is not in the top 20 for aces. Knapp is the ace queen
I always think of this song for Sabs (even if it's not p.c.).
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.

Fantastic game against Stosur,I think she's the only woman left in the draw with the game and the confidence to beat Serena at Wimbledon,Sabine has nothing to lose so if she goes out and swings freely you never know what can happen especially if she can frustrate Serena into one of her screamy sulky moods,absolutely can't wait for it.
Sabine = Top 3 player at Wimbledon. Serena can not afford an off-day
Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour." Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."
