Re: CoCo's Island! Best fans on the beach!

Coco fought hard to force a 2nd-set tiebreak, but Sabine finally prevailed 75.

Re: CoCo's Island! Best fans on the beach!

Oh well.

I'm sure with a few more WTA matches, Coco will learn how to close things out. I had a problem with that for a while when I first started playing matches. It all comes with experience.

Good luck in your next event, Coco!

Arrow Re: CoCo's Island! Best fans on the beach!

Nick Bollettieri's comments on the match, and compliments for Coco, from his blog:

Lisicki wins in SEO debut March 27, 2008

NBTA student Sabine Lisicki won her first match at the Sony Ericsson Open, defeating CoCo Vandeweghe (yes, her uncle is Kiki) 6-4, 7-5. Lisicki got an early break, but Vandweghe battled back to even the match. Lisicki then went on a run in the first set to win it 6-4. In the second set, Lisicki went down 4-0 behind poor serving and unforced errors. Vandweghe was able to capitalize and used her strong serve and penetrating groundstrokes to hurt Lisicki. Then, Lisicki found her serve and the match starting turning her way. She broke Vandweghe twice and went up 5-4. Vandweghe then came back to tie it at 5, but Lisicki was just a bit too strong for Vandweghe.

We came away very impressed by Vandweghe, who is only 17-years old.
[TRY 16, NICK!] She can do a little bit of everything and has a big serve to accompany her powerful groundies. She is extremely athletic and moves well for a tall girl. She seems to have gotten the Vandeweghe athletic gene, which is a very good thing for her. Even though she lost, she has to be encouraged by the way she played. I don’t think we have heard the last from this talented youngster.

[cont. ... more about his pupil, Lisicki]

CoCo played a very competitive match. At this point in her career and at her age the experience of playing in such a highly competitive environment at the highest level is much more important then a win or loss. CoCo will come away from this with allot of confidence even with the loss. Nick seems to think so aswell...... Its only the begining...

Re: CoCo's Island! Best fans on the beach!

I was there watching Coco play Lisicki.
As Nick said in his blog, she was very impressive.

Great future and prospect for American tennis.

Re: CoCo's Island! Best fans on the beach!

Yea, it's Huber, King, Rolle, and Brengle. Strange choices for a clay event. Oh well.
