I guess she will not commentate anymore on canvas right? that's sad because she and Karl together were very good!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I think she will keep commentating on Canvas during sport events. She will continue to work for television on a free-lance base.

I miss Sabine too , she and Steffi (Steffi a bit more ) were my two biggest favourites ever.

She should have won that tournament!

Of course!

Sabine was my absolute favourite. She is such a lovely lady.
I miss you Sabine.

Sabine you were a very good tennis player
Sabine you are very beautifull
But it's your personality that makes you my favourite.

She's very busy taking care of her baby.
In the future she would like to make reports but it's not really necessary for her. She's affraid of making the wrong choice.
She will search something in the direction of sportmanagement or public relations. Television work has to stay a hobby and not her main job.
She will be in France to give comments for VRT during Roland Garros.

Friday 24 may she will be on VRT at 20.40 in Biebabeloela.

Australians loved Sabine, she supported our tournaments for many years and really should have made the semis in 1999?? when she blew a big lead against Mary Peirce to lose 16 64 64.

The best moment for me was at Wimbledon one year when she beat Brenda Schultz 12-10 in the 3rd and got a photograph taken in front of the courtside scoreboard reading 12-10. Her smile and relief at squeezing out the match against the hugest server in women's tennis on grass, was something to remember.

There's more to life than just being happy.
