Terrible Draw for Sabine.
First Hantuchova, then Safina.
Maybe she can get revenge for Wimbledon. :angel:

Terrible Draw for Sabine.
First Hantuchova, then Safina.
Maybe she can get revenge for Wimbledon. :angel:

Sabine is the first unseeded player. :(

Hantuchova will be tough. She needs to play better than in Stanford to win matches here.

Hantuchova is a tough 1st round match, hope she can win it

and Safina - you never know
Safina wasn´t impressive in Portoroz, so who knows?

Good first round, I thin, Kimino isnt that bad, but she should have a few problems to handle the power from Sabine!
Should be possible :p

Czink or Makarova would be waiting in 2nd round, possible 3rd round against Wozniacki, could be interesting, draw is pretty open, even SF is possible, but she often missed it to use such opportunities in the past, normally she plays better when no one expects a win from her, we will see this time, but 3rd round should be minimal goal for sure! :)

Sabine takes a hard-fought first set 7-6(5). Don't think Kimiko can keep it up, though.

Yes she won. But she must improve a lot if she wants to go to the third round.

Next opponent is Makarova.

Finally :rolleyes: I hope she can improve for her next match. Makarova should be beatable but after this one...you never know.

Aug 4th, 2009, 09:06 PM
1st serve was big problem today, really weak!
2nd serve isnt that bad, I mean when she doesnt make a df, she often make points even on 2nd serve!
Hopefully she isnt too tired now, but she has to improve her game anyway to reach 3rd round!

I think Kimiko Date gave Wozniaki lot of troubles at Wimbledon, if I remember correctly.
So She is no pushover. ;)

I hope Sabine's serving problem is just temporary. I really hope so. :)

Yeah, Kimiko is still a decent player. Shouldn't have been this tough but everybody has bad days. Good luck for R2. :D

Sabine has to win 2nd round.
Then 3rd round she has nothing to lose.

Good luck vs Makarova, Sabine!

I didn´t play well today but I fought hard. The tough part as a pro is to win matches when you don´t play well and that´s what I did today.

Didn't expect it, but moving on. Makarova today, should hopefully be easier. Go Sabine :D

Good win for Sabine today!
Way easier than expected!
Saved 10 of 11 Bp´s, 1st set was great, in the 2nd set she didnt use her chances for a 2nd break and then lost serve for the first time at *4-3, but she was able to break back to *5-4 and then she had no problems to serve it out! :D
Especially 1st serve was better today and if she can improve her game a bit like she did already today, she will also have chances against Wozniacki/Cirstea!

Sabine started with 4 double faults.
Quickly got behind 5-2, then I believe trainer was called.
She lost the first set 6-3, then immediately lost her serve to start the second set.
Sabine then retired.

I pray its nothing serious. :sad:

description from GM
"Unfortunately, the story of this match was Sabine's right shoulder. She injured it and had treatment, but she could barely even serve. She was just puffing them in. It's a testament to how much this injury rattled Cirstea that Sabine even got three games in the first. She could not really play and it should have been more of a cruise for Cirstea. Really sad for Sabine"

Sabine's twitter
'Had to retire today during my singles. My shoulder was hurting and I wasn´t able to serve. Tomorrow I´ll have some exams done..."


This is really bad. :sad:
