Good match. Good shot making. Good drop shots from Lisicki.

Sabine was up 4-0 in 2nd TB then lost 7 straight points. :help:

Ended the match strong. :)

Sep 1st, 2009, 07:05 PM
Great work, Sabine!!

Keep going... this was a good match to get the rust off! :)

Sep 1st, 2009, 07:05 PM
Well done to Sabine, should probably have won it in two but shes through never the less. Didn't seem to have any problems with the shoulder either :)

Sep 1st, 2009, 07:06 PM
Sabine :), nice fight after her injury

she had problem with her new serve (she changed it because of her injury), but a win is a win :)

lovely handshake at the hand :drool:

great 3rd set after her 2nd set Tb choke

Not yet.

Now she did.:p

You must have been watching a delay of the match,lol. I thought Sabine took off a few playing during the match, but when her back was pushed to the wall she fought back.

When Sabine was leading 4-0 in the 2nd set tiebreaker she was involved in a rally where on two consecutive plays during the rally she failed to hit an opening on the the left side and then the right side.

I still think since it's her first match in quite awhile, Sabine stood tall. Thank You Sabine! :bounce:

good fight sabine!:) but this new service motion has reduced the effectiveness of her serve, she hit like 14 dfs good luck in rd 2

Sep 1st, 2009, 07:09 PM
Sabine :yeah:

Sep 1st, 2009, 07:11 PM
Yay, that's great!

Sep 1st, 2009, 07:14 PM
Go forward Sabine, show the fans at the US Open that you want the title. Your a great entertainer Sabine.

Sep 1st, 2009, 07:15 PM
Really a great fight by Sabine. :worship:

Cute handshake. :hearts:

Sep 1st, 2009, 07:16 PM
Sabine :woohoo: great fight :)

Sep 1st, 2009, 07:21 PM
nice match, especially 2nd set. both played some exciting groudstrokes.

too many dfs from Sabine, it'll get better with more matches.

Sep 1st, 2009, 07:22 PM
What a lovely handshake :inlove:

i almost can't see this thread

Sep 1st, 2009, 08:22 PM
So happy to see she won! Welcome back, Sabine. :inlove:

Sep 1st, 2009, 08:23 PM
Sabine :yeah: but after being up 4-0 in the 2nd set tiebreak, it was ridiculous that she lost 7 straight points :spit: :weirdo:

Aravane :hug: she was unlucky to have drawn a seed in the 1st rd :sad: Hopefully she can get her ranking up for the AO next year.

Sep 1st, 2009, 08:25 PM
Aravane. :sad:

Sep 1st, 2009, 08:25 PM
I watched the firt two sets and it was a tough battle.Aravane put a good fight in the 2nd set tie-break to comeback from 0-4 I think.Too bad she didn't manage to win this in straights.

Sep 1st, 2009, 08:33 PM
well done Sabine :yeah: good fight after the injury break!

Sep 1st, 2009, 09:13 PM
Today the announcers commented how good Sabine's forehand is. I also think her backhand shots are super. She catches up to shots I can't believe. The same can be said for Rezai. I would like to see Sabine hitting less shots down the middle. Rezai was able to cash in several time when Sabine did that. Rezai is a very good player, but in the end the fighter would not die. Just say Sabine!

Sabs! :bounce:

Love both; glad Sabine won, but I HATE her new serve - but if it's protecting her shoulder, I guess that is most important.

Sabine :bounce:

Aravane :sad:

Sep 2nd, 2009, 01:03 PM

Yay Sabine :inlove: :inlove:
