Olympic Games 2012

Singles, Doubles with Sabine Lisicki and Mixed with Phillip Petzschner. Too much?

Well, I think she should play singles and mixed. There is no point really in playing doubles there. Who else is playing doubles from Germany?

Re: Olympic Games 2012

Görges/Petkovic,but it is not sure if Petkovic will participate. It would make sense if Lisicki and Görges, the two best german doubles players play together and then have a chance to win a medal

I think you are right. I thought that ALG qualified for Olympics doubles but it seems she will not be there. Angie has never been successful doubles player, but if she desperately wants to play doubles, I'm not going to complain. She's not playing any tournaments before Olympics. I'm sure she's going to be fit enough to handle this.

I have to agree. In 2011 and 2012 combined she played 17 doubles matches. Of which she won 6. Most notably reaching R3 in Wimbledon 2011 (with McHale). But still, it remains to be seen if the pairing of Kerber/Lisicki makes any sense. They have never ever played a doubles match together. But then again, Becker and Stich never liked each other, never played doubles together, only to win Olympic gold in doubles. And Lisicki last year had never played doubles with Stosur, only to win their very first tournament in Stuttgart and make the final of their second tournament in Wimbledon. So, who knows, it might all work out.

Re: Olympic Games 2012

First round is tough but overall it's not a bad draw. Would be interesting to see her against Azarenka in quarterfinal.

Re: Olympic Games 2012

2 Olympic wins for Angelique !

Angelique should beat Babos in straight sets. Tough doubles match vs Serena/Venus. Go

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
Serena Williams Maria Sharapova Jelena Jankovic
A. Radwanska V. Zvonareva C. Wozniacki N. Petrova M. Hingis
T. Paszek A. Chakvetadze K. Sprem J. Dokic I. Tulyaganova A. Myskina
