Remembering Sabine Hack

Wer von Euch erinnert sich auch noch wehmütig an eine der besten deutschen Sandplatzspielerinnen der 90er, die zum Ende hin total einbrach+niemand wusste genau warum?

Sie hatte 3 grandiose Jahre, nahm Steffi in Berlin einen Satz 6-0 ab, gewann Houston gegen Novotna und Pierce, besagte Martinez und Sanchez, nur um dann gegen Martinez 2 Mal 6-0 6-0 abgeschossen zu werden und dann in der Versenkung zu verschwinden. Sie war sogar beim Masters, als Indoor-Anti-Spielerin, verlor gegen Date 3-6 0-6, in einem Jahr, das gar nicht ihr bestes Jahr war, glaube ich.

Als sie noch solide in den top30 stand+ich glaubte, sie bleibt dort, verlor sie bei Turnieren, in denen sie topgesetzt war, polnischer Sandplatz etc., gegen "Graupen", ebenso in den Grand Slams. Weiss jemand, woran das lag?
Sie war eine tolle Sandspielerin, leider war von vornherein klar, dass das Potential nicht ausbaufähig war. Gegen die hardhitters von heute wäre Sabine sicher nicht so chancenreich.

Ich vermisse diese tolle Zeit. Sie hätte noch mehr erreichen können.

Re: Remembering Sabine Hack

Does anyone have contact information for Sabine Hack? She gave us some memorable evenings at VS Houston.

Re: Remembering Sabine Hack

As far as I know she is married abroad - in the USA - or somewhere else. It should be quite difficult to get contact information.

Every time I crawl past your door, I been wishing I was somebody else instead.

Re: Remembering Sabine Hack

Sie war interessant und hat eins der längsten Spiele gg. Novotna mal bestritten, 3. 20 h oder so. Aber heute würde sie wohl auch anders spielen müssen. Ihr Potential hat sie wohl mehr als ausgeschöpft.

In der Zeit, wo sie zurückfiel, war nunmal langsam eine Umstellung des Spiels zu beobachten. Dennoch hat sie immernoch mehr erreicht als viele Spielerinnen (und alle, die momentan aktiv sind aus GER).

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Re: Remembering Sabine Hack

I believe she is married to her former coach and training kids or whatever in the USA.

The Novotna match was the one in Houston in the event which she won against Pierce, wasn´t it?

Re: Remembering Sabine Hack

Mir ist gerade aufgefallen, dass ihr bestes Paris/Grand-Slam Resultat 1994 war. Danach ist sie 2 Jahre lang in den Grand Slams ganz übel auf die Nase gefallen. D.h. in den letzten 2 Jahren ihrer Karriere hat sie nicht mehr viel gerissen. War es aber nicht so, dass sie 1994 beim Masters war und 1995 noch gut auf der Tour dabei war?

Würde gern mal ihre Ergebnisse im Einzelnen 1993-1996 sehen

Mir scheint, dass sie nach dem Durchbruch 1993/1994 "satt", weil sie wußte, mit ihren Möglichkeiten habe ich das aktuell optimal Mögliche herausgeholt

Anders als z.B. Glass oder Weingärtner, die mit Verletzungen und Motivation zu kämpfen hatten

Und dann hat sie doch 1 Mal Martinez und Sanchez geschlagen und dann gegen Conchita 2 Mal hintereinander ne Doppelnull kassiert

Ist das korrekt

Re: Remembering Sabine Hack

Hatte sie nicht so eine ähnliche Spielweise wie Coetzer - sprich: war sie nicht eine menschliche Ballwand?! Ich habe sowas noch in Erinnerung, kann mich aber auch täuschen.

Auf www.wtatour.com findest Du unter players/activity alle ihre Ergebnisse. Man kann sich dort die Jahre einzeln anzeigen lassen oder sogar mit "all years" alle Jahre zusammen...

Sehe gerade, dass er Hack nicht findet. Man kommt aber ran, in dem man sich die Ergebnisse von Martinez anzeigen lässt (die findet man) und dann bei einem Spiel gegen Hack auf den Namen klickt. Dann ist man im Player profile von Sabine...

Although I remember seeing her name in the tennis section of the sports pages,I was just a kid back then and pro'bly didn't see her play.Someone posted that she specialized on clay courts.Did she play a defensive backboard style or did she aggressively go for her shots?Was she petite like Muller or was she a tall girl as Groenefeld is????

i've seen her play a couple of times on televion, but never live. she was an absolute claycourt-specialist with some surprisingly good results on slower hardcourts. her style was pretty defensive, she moonballed a lot and she was quick on her feet. her game seemed to be boring (but those pre-WILLIAMS-days a lot of girls played that kind of tennis, look at ARANTXA ) but her strength was her cleverness on court, her tricky tactics. definitely much more a MÜLLER than a GRÖNEFELD. but she was mentally stronger, was never afraid of bigger names. but nevertheless she wouldn't be top100 in today's tennis, i'm sure.
such a nice girl, down to earth and friendly. i liked her a lot and i enjoyed seeing her play - and she has had a bunch of great results!

Thank you for your courtesy and information.No one had posted in this thread for a long time so I wasn't sure that I would even get an answer...and you're right,that moonball style of play was a lot more common back then than it is now...thanks again!

You probably already knew this since you speak English so excellently,but a lot of the sports media guys in the US used to make little jokes about Sabine's last name because it's a derogatory word in the English language.Aside from that,they rarely spoke of her very much...it seems impossible to find any photographs of Sabine;do you have any from her playing days or even any recent ones?It would be better to see one where she isn't making a strained expression while attempting a shot.Even Kirilenko could look ugly if you caught her at the wrong angle while she's exerting herself.

you're welcome!

and yes, i knew this. her name is also a not so beautiful one in the german language. i joked with friends a lot that if she would ever marry a man called "braten", her name would be "hack-braten" what means "meat loaf" in english.

unfortunately i just found two images of her in the net:
